Abstract The repeating centrifuge pellet injector developed for plasma fuelling experiments at ASDEX Upgrade was improved to give higher repetition rates. The system is now capable of launching pellet series at rates of up to 80 Hz and speeds of up to 1.2 km/s. Differently sized (nominal pellet masses 1.7{endash}4.3{times}10{sup 20} atoms) deuterium pellets have been injected into ASDEX Upgrade. The only limitations at present derive from the pellet feed-in by a single storage cryostat. These might be overcome by using several feed-in sources {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}
