CRYOGENIC COOLERS YOUR PARTNER IN CRYOGENICS Le-Tehnika d.o.o. Šuceva 27 SI Kranj Slovenia, Europe Tel.: Fax:
CRYOGENIC COOLERS Le-tehnika – basic data -Established in main divisions: –Telephony since 1989 –Hydraulics&Pneumatics since 1995 –Cryogenics since A doughter company Sinoslo Technology (SIP) Ltd. established in year 2003 in China
CRYOGENIC COOLERS ISO in Le-tehnika – accomplished STANDARD S Standard s - ISO 9001: ISO 14001:2004 (environmental)
CRYOGENIC PROGRAM Specific advantages of Le-tehnika: Le-tehnika is specialized in development and production of cryogenic coolers systems of different configurations and performances and its accessories. They are generally intended for IR detector’s cooling used in IR cameras or missiles with an IR head for defense industry, police, security and in other applications. - Flexible production (quick delivery of samples or small quantities) - R&D team (customized solutions for each customer) - Competitive prices - Quality
CRYOGENIC COOLERS CRYOGENIC DEPARTMENT’S EQUIPMENT High purity air, N2 and Argon installation with pressures up to 700 bar Climatic Chambers for environmental testing Measuring stands for JT coolers performance measurements Clean room class ISO7 Filling stations for Stirling cycle devices Sarix EDM machine for production of small parts Multiple turning machines HYDRAULIC DEPARTMENT has its own workshop, which we are using for production of bigger parts.

CRYOGENIC COOLERS JOULE THOMSON MINICOOLERS Capabilities: -Design and construction of coolers. -Heat exchangers calculation and manufacturing. -Different types of orifice designs, dimensioning and construction of orifice in accordance with required cooler consumption. -Technology of bellow type self regulating mechanism. -Technology of other types of self regulating mechanism (bimetal,etc.). -Technology of Active Controlled type JT cooler. -Technology of Dual flow JT coolers -Production of JT coolers. -Testing and measuring of JT cooler performances for pressures up to 700bar at different ambient temperatures -Typical outer diameters: 5.18mm, 7.22mm, 10.3mm, 11.17mm -Design proving, qualification testing etc.
CRYOGENIC COOLERS JOULE THOMSON MINICOOLERS BY TYPE OF CONSTRUCTION * Fixed orifice * Actively controlled (regulated) * Fast cool down * Self – regulated* Multilayer
JOULE THOMSON MINICOOLERS ACTIVELY CONTROLLED COOLER - ACC Advantages: - more reliable, - less influenced by gas impurities, - more stable operation, - operating temperature is not fixed with the gas used and could be set as needed. Used for cooling of IR head on IRIS-T rocket.
CRYOGENIC COOLERS ACCESSORIES -High pressure gas containers (bottles) -Quick release valves (TBD) -High pressure gas cleansers -Pure Air Monitors (PAM) -Test dewars JOULE THOMSON MINICOOLERS ACCESSORIES
