SPIE 2010 – High reliable linear Cryocoolers and miniaturization developments at Thales Cryogenics

Thales Cryogenics (TCBV) has an extensive background in delivering long life cryogenic coolers for military, civil and space programs. This cooler range is based on two main compressor concepts: close tolerance contact seals (UP) and flexure bearing (LSF/LPT) coolers. Main difference between these products is the Mean Time To Failure (MTTF). In this paper an overview of lifetime parameters will be listed versus the impact in the different cooler types. Also test results from both the installed base and the Thales Cryogenics test lab will be presented.
New developments at Thales Cryogenics regarding compact long lifetime coolers will be outlined.  In addition new developments for miniature linear cooler drive electronics with high temperature stability and power density will be described.
