Freeze4 0.8K "Single-Shot" Sorption Fridge
Our patent-pending Freeze4 helium sorption fridge provides base temperatures below 0.8K. Its main features are:
- fully closed-cycle: no consumption of liquid cryogens,
- push-button operation
- no moving parts
- long hold times: 12, 24, 36, 48, 72+ hours possible for different capacity models
- fast cycle time: ~ 1.5 hours (depends on cryocooler and user load)
The hold-time of the sorption fridge depends, in a large part, on the amount of helium stored inside. We offer a few different sizes of sorption fridge. The lower capacity fridges offer a faster cooldown (~11 hours from 300K to 0.8K) and faster cycling, while the larger capacity fridges offer the longest hold times (up to 67 hours has been demonstrated, see Fig 2 below). We can also custom-build our fridges to meet your needs.
