Abstract
As an extension to XENON1T and beyond, we develop the drive and control system for a clean and sealed magnetic piston pump. Such a pump could provide increased gas circulation rates through purification systems necessary for ton-scale liquid-noble detectors. At the same time all materials in direct contact with the detector medium are minimized, and failure modes directed away from contaminant introducing procedures.
