temperature test & conditioning applications

Cryogenic or Compressor Cooling

The type of cooling you choose may be defined by the your low temperature. For some applications, however, it may not be obvious. If you need to decide whether to cool with cryogenic or compressor-based refrigeration, the charts below can help.
  Cryogenic Compressor
Higher heat capacity  
Wider temperature range  
Faster temperature ramp  
Lower noise  
Less heat generation  
Smaller footprint  
Less maintenance  
No coolant source needed  
No ventilation required  
Lower equipment Cost  
Lower operating Cost  
Most suited for Short tests, fast transitions Long tests or cryo not available
