This article is intended to provide an overview of the main laser systems and the laser cooling pumps that can be used in the chiller systems.
Here is a brief summary:
Laser Systems have grown in the use of applications in different fields such as medical and industrial.
This has created new cooling challenges for laser designers. As a matter at fact all these systems require laser, or other components to cool down and to carefully monitor the temperature.
Commonly, we have two main systems:
• Low Power Laser Systems
• High Power Laser Systems
For the first category it is sufficient to control the air blow to check the temperature and remove residual heat.
In High-power lasers, there is a greater amount of heat and consequently the system requires an increased level of cooling capacity.
This enormous amount of heat has to be removed to avoid temperature peaks, which could impair system performance, or even worse damage the laser.
This is why a cooling system is needed.
These systems can be integrated into or connected to laser systems as separate portable chiller systems.
Regardless of the final choice, both types of systems work in the same way. They provide laser refrigerant using different fluids such as water, water-glycol, deionized water or thermal fluids.
Different types of pumps can be used in chiller systems:
• Centrifugal pumps: these pumps depend on pressure. Higher flow rate at lower pressure. They can be powered by AC or DC.
• Turbine pumps: they are very similar to centrifugal pumps but are ideal for large pressure drops.
Fluid-o-Tech laser cooling pumps are designed to fit different laser systems in a wide range or applications such as surgical instruments, skin care, welding, cutting, etc...
Thanks to its many years of experience in the field of gear pumps and rotary vane pumps, Fluid-o-Tech provides a range of solutions that guarantee an adequate flow rate even at high pressure or pressure drops.
The quality of Fluid-o-Tech’s laser cooling pumps is recognized worldwide for fulfilling the demand of the market.
