In this way the swept volume vuilpeumier the compressor can be 50 60 times smaller than of the cooler. The basic type of Stirling-type cooler is depicted in Fig. It is used to cool some particular application to cryogenic temperatures.

Periodically heat is stored and released cryofooler the material. Information related to the author. Its position is synchronized with the motion of the displacer. Next it enters the warm high-pressure side of the counterflow heat exchanger where it is precooled. The liquid fraction is x. Usually there are two pistons moving in opposite directions driven by AC magnetic fields as in loudspeakers.

Gifford-McMahon GM coolers [4] have found widespread application in many low-temperature systems e. Another type of Stirling cooler is the split-pair type Fig.

Cryocooler – Wikipedia

It consists of a compressor, a counterflow heat exchanger, a Ot valve, and a reservoir. From left to right it consists of a piston, a compression space, and heat exchanger all at ambient temperature T aa regenerator, and a heat vullleumier, expansion space, and a piston all at the low temperature T L.

The pistons and the compressor casing don’t touch so no lubricants are needed and there is no wear. All the gas is at room temperature. It leaves the exchanger at point c. Usually helium is the working fluid. This page was last edited on 13 Decemberat Typically its motion is 90 degrees out of phase with the piston.

In its most extreme form an ideal regenerator has the following vuillemuier. One must also prevent oil vapor from entering the regenerator by high-quality purification traps. The cycle starts with the low-pressure lp valve closed, the high-pressure hp valve open, and the displacer all the way to the right so in the cold region.

This paper describes the specifications required for the machine, and detailes of design based an isothermal thermodynamic cycle. The nominal dimensions of the first trial machine are length of mm, width of mm and height of mm. The analytical model can be used to clarity the working gas behavior in the system and determine the performance characteristics of the machine by calculating all losses to be mutually decoupled.

In the pV diagram Fig. In this way the efficiency is improved and the high pressure is vuilleumieg lower than bar. The Vuilleumier cryocooler is a heat engine which uses heat energy rather than mechanical energy to cyclically pressurize the working gas.

It leaves the heat exchanger at room temperature point a. The liquid leaves the system at the bottom of the reservoir point e and the gas fraction 1- x flows into the cold low-pressure side of the counterflow heat exchanger point f. The compression heat is removed by cooling water. The pulse tube refrigerator is treated in a separate article.

Usually the regenerator and the displacer are combined in one body. A displacer is a solid body which moves back and forth in the cold head driving the gas back and forth between the warm and the cold end of dessign cold head via the regenerator. The weight of the complete machine was 6 kg. Deisgn can easily be miniaturized, but it is also used on a very large scale in the liquefaction of natural gas. This is a clear disadvantage of this type of cooler.


Heat exchangers are important components of all cryocoolers. The regenerator in the cold finger is suspended by a spring. The pressure crjocooler in the cold head are obtained by connecting it periodically to the high- and low-pressure sides of a compressor by a rotating valve.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. As typical performance values from the calculation, the machine has a cooling capacity of 2.

The cooling cycle is split in 4 steps as depicted in Fig. A schematic diagram of a JT liquefier, is given in Fig. The work, performed during the expansion, is used to reduce the total input power.

Demonstration testing of a Vuilleumier cryocooler with an integral

The recent progress in the cryocooler field is for a great deal due to the development of new materials with a high heat capacity below 10K. February 25, received: Ideal heat vuilleujier have no flow resistance and the exit gas temperature vuillehmier the same as the fixed body temperature T X of the heat exchanger. At the inlet of the compressor the gas is at room temperature K and a pressure of 1 bar point a.
