The required pumping power for the liquid metal ergodic limiter/divertor REVOLVER-D (Reactor-oriented Effectively VOLumetric VERtical Divertor), which is considered as an optional divertor design for the LHD-type helical fusion reactor FFHR-d1, has been estimated with a consideration of the change in the strength of transverse magnetic field along the flow channel. It is found that the pressure drop and the required pumping power can be suppressed to an acceptable level by using insulated ducts.
