The Vuilleumier cryocooler has the potential advantages of long lifetime and low mechanical vibration. From left to right it consists of: The liquid leaves the system at the bottom of the reservoir point e and the gas vuilldumier 1- x flows into the cold low-pressure side of the counterflow heat exchanger point f. This paper describes the specifications required for the machine, and detailes of design based an isothermal thermodynamic cycle.

Demonstration testing of a Vuilleumier cryocooler with an integral

Usually the motions of both pistons are dryocooler by a common rotary axes which makes the motions harmonic. Basically it is a very simple type of cooler which is widely applied as cryocooler or as the final stage of liquefactors. The pressure variations in the cold head are obtained by connecting it periodically to the high- and low-pressure sides of a compressor by a rotating valve.


Another type of Stirling cooler is the split-pair type Fig. As typical performance values from the calculation, the machine has a cooling capacity of 2. The pistons can be suspended by so-called flexure bearings.


In this way the swept volume of the compressor can be 50 60 times smaller than of the cooler. A Cryocooler is a desibn cooler, usually of table-top size. Information related to the author. Views Read Edit View history. When used as a cryocooler it is preferable to use gas mixtures instead of pure nitrogen.

These are conflicting requirements. Previous article Next article. It is not so practical to have a cold piston, as described above, so, in many cases, a displacer is used instead of the cold piston.

March 28, accepted: All the gas is at room temperature. The volume V is the volume between the two pistons.

The liquid fraction is x. The pulse tube refrigerator is treated in a separate article. A review is given by Radebaugh.

Cryocooler – Wikipedia

In its most extreme form an ideal regenerator has the following properties:. Basically cheap compressors of domestic refrigerators can be used, but one must prevent overheating of the compressor as it is not designed for helium. Already have vuilleumiee account?

Journal home Journal issue About the journal. Left and right the thermal contact with the surroundings at the temperatures T a and T L is supposed to be perfect so vuilluemier the compression and expansion are isothermal.


Next it enters the warm high-pressure side of the counterflow heat exchanger where it is precooled.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. It consists of a compressor, a counterflow heat exchanger, a JT valve, and a reservoir. A regenerator consists of a matrix of a solid porous material, such as granular particles or metal sieves, through which gas flows back and forth. The cooling cycle is split in deslgn steps as depicted in Fig.

Transactions of the Society of Mechanical Engineers.

The cooler operates at a frequency near the resonance frequency of the mass-spring system of the cold finger. Usually there are two pistons moving in opposite directions driven by Vullleumier magnetic fields as in loudspeakers.

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 the cold head via the regenerator. The heat contact with the gas must be good and vuilleumker flow resistance of the matrix must be low.

A more detailed description of Joule-Thomson coolers and Joule-Thomson refrigerators can be found in [5]. The recent progress in the cryocooled field is for a great deal due to the development of new materials with a high heat capacity below 10K.
