The latest version of the world-leading open-flow cryogenic gas cooler
From its highly stable, precise temperature control to its fast cooldown time and integrated autofill, every iteration of the Cryostream has expanded the list of available features. Now, forty years since its invention, our engineers have created the new Cryostream 1000, incorporating elegant design with a focus on reliability, simplicity and ease of use.
The latest version of the world-leading open-flow cryogenic gas cooler unifies the controller, pump and dry-air unit into a single gas supply module (GSM). This minimises the system’s overall footprint while simplifying cabling and installation and improves the user experience.
All new electronics and firmware provide combined status reports and intelligent diagnostic information, enabling the system to issue service notifications, automatically regulate the shield flow and run with greater energy efficiency. The control software now supports new functionality for remote annealing, offering precise, low latency control of the gas flow over the sample.
The newly designed coldhead now includes an LED status indicator, providing the user with immediate visual feedback when needed most. The pump-out port has been relocated to the rigid leg, eliminating the need to remove the coldhead from the cabinet while performing vacuum regeneration. A new X-ray transparent nozzle attachment is now available as an option to minimise shadowing of the diffraction signal, enabling more data to be collected which can reduce the duration of experiments or improve the signal-to-noise ratio and overall data quality.
Improved Planned Maintenance
Improved Pump-out Port Design: Relocated to the rigid leg and re-designed for ease of use, this eliminates the requirement to remove the coldhead from the cabinet during vacuum regeneration.
Service & Maintenance: Within all Cryostream 1000s is a storage compartment containing all spare parts required for a full service. This, coupled with its modular design, ensures maintenance can be performed quickly and easily by the user, reducing unscheduled downtime.
2 Year Standard Warranty: All Cryostream 1000 systems ship with a two year warranty as standard.
An optional attachment for the coldhead nozzle that minimises shadowing of the diffraction signal, enabling more data to be collected which can reduce the duration of experiments or improve the signal-to-noise ratio and overall data quality.
Remote Annealing: Controlled and programable interruption of the gas flow over the sample for annealing without physical manipulation (also available via an open network protocol).
Auto Shield Flow: Automatically optimised shield gas flow rates, eliminating potential user error.
Intelligent Diagnostics: An integrated real-time clock now tracks the use of the system, notifying the user of upcoming service requirements, helping to eliminate unscheduled downtime.
Eco Mode: Continual monitoring of the dry-air module eliminates any unnecessary run time, saving energy and reducing maintenance.
