Cryocoolers: 2S102K

The 2S102K is our smallest, most affordable cryocooler.

It is the most compact and cost effective Qdrive cryocooler to date. It's driven by our 2s102W TwinSTAR Pressure Wave Generator (PWG), and is rated for 6-8 Watts cooling at 77 Kelvin. The 2s102K uses our acoustic-Stirling ("pulse-tube") coldhead. 

The 2S102K is ideal for laboratory, table-top, and other space-limited, cost-sensitive cryogenic cooling applications. Such uses include:

  • Instrument and Detector Cooling
  • HTS Superconducting Cooling
  • Biological Sample Freezing & Preservation
  • Microscopy and Materials Research
  • On-site Liquefaction of Pure Gases
