Demonstration testing of a Vuilleumier cryocooler with an integral

Views Read Edit View history. After compression the gas temperature is ambient temperature K and the pressure is bar point b. Usually there are two pistons moving in opposite directions driven by AC magnetic fields as in loudspeakers. From Wikipedia, the cryoccooler encyclopedia.

The basic type of Stirling-type cooler is depicted in Fig.

The vuilleujier and the compressor casing don’t touch so no lubricants are needed and there is no wear. All the gas is at room temperature. When used as a cryocooler it is preferable to use gas mixtures instead of pure nitrogen.


desgn In order to keep the system in the steady state gas is supplied to compensate for the liquid fraction x that has been removed. The recent progress in the vullleumier field is for a great deal due to the development of new materials with a high heat capacity below 10K.

The liquid leaves the system at the bottom of vjilleumier reservoir point e and the gas fraction 1- cryocooled flows into the cold low-pressure side of the counterflow heat exchanger point f.


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 liquid fraction is x. A schematic diagram of a JT liquefier, is given in Fig. The nominal dimensions of the first trial machine are length of mm, width of mm and height of mm.

A Cryocooler is a standalone cooler, usually of table-top size. At the inlet of the compressor the gas is at room temperature K and a pressure of 1 bar point a.

The heat contact with the gas must be good and the flow resistance of the matrix must be low. The pulse tube refrigerator is treated in a separate article. It leaves the exchanger at point c.

In this way the efficiency is improved and the high pressure is much lower than bar. The cooler operates at a frequency near the resonance frequency of the mass-spring system of the cold finger. The cycle starts when the two pistons are in their most left positions:. Left and right the thermal contact with the surroundings at the temperatures T a and T L is supposed to be perfect so that the compression and expansion are isothermal.

Usually the motions of both pistons are driven by a common rotary axes which makes the motions harmonic. Transactions of the Society of Mechanical Engineers. From left to right it consists of a piston, a compression space, and heat exchanger all at ambient temperature T aa regenerator, and a heat exchanger, expansion space, and a piston all at the low temperature T L.

The Vuilleumier cryocooler is a heat engine which uses heat energy rather than mechanical energy to cyclically pressurize the working gas. The analytical model can be used to clarity the crypcooler gas behavior in the system and determine the performance characteristics of the machine by calculating all losses to be mutually decoupled. 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.

It is not so practical to have a cold piston, as described above, so, in many cases, guilleumier displacer is used instead of the cold piston.

Next vuillemuier enters the warm high-pressure side of the counterflow heat exchanger where it is precooled. Retrieved from ” https: Note that even a perfect heat exchanger will not affect the entrance temperature T i of the gas. Basically it is a very simple type of cooler which is widely applied as cryocooler or as the final stage of liquefactors.

The pistons can be suspended by so-called flexure bearings. No work is required to move the displacer since, ideally there is no pressure drop over it. The regenerator in the cold finger is suspended by a spring. This page was last edited on 13 Decemberat Helium at pressures in the 10 to 30 bar range is the working fluid. Register Already have an account? This leads to losses. 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.

These are conflicting requirements. They provide stiffness in the radial direction and flexibility in the axial direction. The work, performed during the expansion, is used to reduce the total input power.

Usually the regenerator and the displacer are combined in one body. Cryocloler left to right it consists of: The volume V is the volume between the two pistons.

Typically its motion is 90 degrees out of phase with the piston. February 17, Released: The thermodynamic and crocooler properties of regenerators are very complicated, so one usually makes simplifying models. One must also prevent oil vapor from entering the regenerator by high-quality purification traps.

The cooling cycle is split in 4 steps as depicted in Fig.
