During the recent ohmic heating experiments on TFTR, the movable limiter array, preliminary inner bumper limiter, and prototype ZrAl alloy bulk getter surface pumping system were brought into operation. This paper summarizes the operational experience and plasma characteristics obtained with these components. The near-term upgrades of these systems are also discussed.
