Durable, Dependable, Adaptable
Like the emperor penguin, Qdrive cryocoolers have evolved into a class of their own - durable, dependable, and adaptable to your cooling environment. Evolution or intelligent design? Either way, Qdrive acoustic-Stirling (pulse-tube) cryocoolers are well-suited for a market that demands low-cost, reliable, low-maintenance cryocooling.
Qdrive's cryocooler design is completely absent of cold moving parts or seals, eliminating maintenance that is required of most other technologies. When mass loading at the cooled point is of concern, Qdrive offers a remote head system (FAR), separating the pressure wave generator from the cryogenic coldhead, which further reduces vibration. These advantages are accompanied by competitive pricing in both small and large quantities, making them ideal not only for laboratory use but also for HTS, medical, liquefaction, and military and aerospace applications.





What's Your Application?
All our products have no wearing parts or lubrication needs, which means long-life and no scheduled maintenance. Their dual-opposed motor design makes them naturally low in vibration and quiet. And, because the only working fluid is inert helium gas, Qdrive’s cryocoolers are 100% environmentally safe. These thermoacoustic cryocoolers have been successfully used in the following applications:

• HTS – High Temperature Superconductors
• Liquefaction (LNG, LOX, LN2, etc.) See a Qdrive Cryocooler Producing Liquid Argon
• Vacuum pumping
• Instrument/Device cooling
• Medical storage
• Biological storage
• Freeze point detection
• Microscopy
• Boil Off Gas (BOG) re-condensing See a Qdrive Cryocooler Producing Liquid Argon
• Radiation detector cooling
