H3R Refrigerator
Helium 3 Refrigerator - H3R Series
The H3R refrigerator is a multistage cooling system. A 2" diameter LHe3 cooled work surface is sustained at a temperature of 300 mK. A pumped LHe4 cooled radiation shield surrounds the He3 chamber. The LHe4 work surface to which the radiation shield is attached is capable of cooling a variety of user specified optical and mechanical components. A LN2 cooled radiation shield surrounds the LHe4 chamber.

The size of the He3 work surface is fixed at 2 inches. However, the diameter of the LHe4 surface ranges from 5 to 10 inches.

The system is designed to cool sensitive infrared and millimeter-wave bolometers.
