Fabrum Solutions releases new Cryocooler range at CEC Tucson June, 2015.

Fabrum Solutions in collaboration with Callaghan Innovation has been developing large pulse tube cryocoolers based on Callaghan Innovation’s diaphragm pressure wave generators (DPWG). The pulse tube’s lack of moving parts in combination with the DPWG’s metal diaphragms produces a cost-effective, long life and robust cryocooler. The DPWG has had 10 years of development, resulting in a series of DPWGs ranging in input powers from 0.5 kW to 30 kW that have been coupled to a variety of in-line and coaxial pulse tubes. The PTC330 cryocooler is based on a new 330 cc DPWG and produces 480 W of cooling at 77 K. The PTC1000 combines three such pulse tubes on a single 1000 cc DPWG to produce 1250 W at 77 K. Fabrum Solutions engaged Absolut System to design the linear pulse tube. Both the PTC330 and PTC1000 are now in commercial production as standalone cryocoolers, as well as being integrated into full liquefiers for use with Nitrogen, Oxygen and Methane. These liquefiers are ready for use in applications such as: Nitrogen liquefaction, re-liquefaction of boil-off from storage tanks, or cooling of cryostats for High Temperature Superconductor applications.

Applications

  • On-site gas liquefaction/Recondensation.
  • High-temperature superconducting (HTS) magnets.
  • HTS power system cooling; cables, transformers, fault-current limiters, rotating machines.
  • Sample freezing and preservation.

Commercial Use

Fabrum Solutions now has the PTC330 and PTC1000 cryocoolers available for commercial use. The first cryocooler, denoted the PTC330, is a single in-line pulse tube running on a 330 cc swept volume DPWG that produces 480 W of cooling at 77 K. The second cryocooler, denoted the PTC1000, combines three in-line pulse tubes on a single 1000 cc DPWG and is capable of 1250 W of refrigeration at 77 K with a Carnot efficiency of 15%. The pulse tube’s lack of moving parts combined with the DPWG’s ruggedness and mechanical simplicity have resulted in a cryocooler that is ideally suited to liquefaction of gases in industrial environments and is particularly well suited to applications such as refrigeration for large HTS transformers and cables.
