Multipurpose cryogenic refrigeration system for research and test
19 June 2012
Megatech has introduced an affordable multipurpose cryogenic refrigeration system for ultra-low temperature cooling. Based on the industry standard PFC series, it can be used in conjunction with most vacuum equipment. Manufactured by US based Brooks Automation, the XC-8800 HC cryochiller is a closed loop cryogenic refrigeration system capable of providing up to 4,000W of cooling.
Water vapour and other condensable substances can be captured by freezing them on to a cold surface such as a cryocoil or chevron baffle. The system is capable of cooling in the temperature range of -98 to -130 degrees C. When connected to a vacuum system the XC can dramatically reduce the need for pump-down systems and increase product throughput. This versatile product will pump water vapour within minutes of starting and can defrost within four minutes giving fast cycling capability.
Features include a rapid balance pressure check, which gives a balance pressure reading within 20 minutes, helping to maximise tool uptime. Patented green refrigerants are globally compliant, non toxic and non inflammable.
A dual circuit enables the XC to cool two cryosurfaces (two crycoils, coil and baffle, or two baffles) which can be cooled or defrosted separately.
This innovative cooler, though primarily intended for use in the semiconductor manufacturing industry, has many applications in laboratory, research and manufacturing testing environments.
