{\displaystyle \xi } These units can be used in numerous space and commercial applications, including food freezers freeze dryers. The extra gas flow also regulates the phase angle between the pressure and mass flow in the system. The lowest temperature, reached with single-stage PTRs, is just above 10 K.[15] However, one PTR can be used to precool the other. Preservation of biological materials, blood, biological specimens etc. 483-491 , 2013, Zhang X. By varying phase angle, they get lowest temperature 132 K at phase angle 40 degree. Studies show that use of the inertance tube is significantly beneficial for large-scale pulse tubes operating at higher frequencies. 65. GM-type of PTR. As a result, the gas also moves from left to right and back while the pressure within the system increases and decreases. It is thus an object of this invention to provide a Vuillemumier refrigerator wherein the refrigeration is produced in a separate structure from the thermal pulse … (a) the standard unit used in refrigeration problems (b) the cooling effect produced by melting 1 ton of ice (c) the refrigeration effect to freeze 1 ton of water at 0°C into ice at 0°C in 24 hours (d) the refrigeration effect to produce 1 ton of ice at NTP conditions (e) the refrigeration effect to produce 1 ton of ice in 1 hour time. This pulse tube refrigerator without an orifice is now referred to as the basic pulse tube refrigerator. The interior of the regenerator tube is filled with either packed spheres or stacked fine mesh screens to increase its heat capacity. This added a second moving component and increases the efficiency. In process 1-2 gas temperature increased compare to the wall temperature hence in this process gas is being cooled by the heat exchanger and temperature becomes Ta, which produces the refrigeration effect during the expansion process. For getting the cooling, the source of the pressure variations is unimportant. The hot end of the second tube is connected to room temperature and not to the cold end of the first stage. Stirling cryocooler and GM-refrigerators), this cryocooler can be made without moving parts in the low temperature part of the device, making the cooler suitable for a wide variety of applications. At the moment, the lowest temperature is below the boiling point of helium (4.2 K). S.K. [1] Pulse tubes are also being developed for cooling of astronomical detectors where liquid cryogens are typically used, such as the Atacama Cosmology Telescope[2] or the Qubic experiment[3] (an interferometer for cosmology studies). [1] Its basic components are regenerator, pulse tube, pressure wave generator, and two heat exchangers as shown in Fig. Gifford et al. The fourth and the most recently invented PTR is inertance tube pulse tube refrigerator shown in Fig. (a) the standard unit used in refrigeration problems (b) the cooling effect produced by melting 1 ton of ice (c) the refrigeration effect to freeze 1 ton of water at 0°C into ice at 0°C in 24 hours (d) the refrigeration effect to produce 1 ton of ice at NTP conditions (e) the refrigeration effect to produce 1 ton of ice in 1 hour time. The rapid cooling technique makes use of a resonant phenomenon in the inertance tube and reservoir system to decrease the flow impedance and thereby increase the acoustic power and refrigeration power in the system when the cold end is near room temperature. al further improved the design, by arranging the orifice outside the heat exchanger and added a reservoir after the orifice. After analysis they conclude that porosity value of regenerator 0.6 at which it gives a better cooling. Sarangi, Influence of porosity on the performance of a Pulse Tube Refrigerator: A CFD study, Procedia Engineering, vol. 5. Assistant Professor, Indus University, Mechanical Dept. The most important development has been the discovery of the double inlet Pulse Tube by Dr. Zh of Xi'an Jiaotong University, China (13th International Cryogenic Engineering Conference, 1990). For many applications it is preferable that the cooling is produced at the end of the cooler. [17] did numerical analysis of oscillation flow in cfd software of inline Inertance tube refrigerator they use helium as working medium and frequency 12Hz. The regenerator has dimensions of 4.4 mm inside diameter by 27 mm long and is filled with #635 mesh stainless steel screen. K. Wang et al. The regenerator is a periodic flow heat exchanger which absorbs heat from gas pumped into the pulse tube pre-cooling it, and stores the heat for half a cycle then transfers it back to outgoing cold gas in the second half of the cycle cooling the regenerator. These devices have low efficiency. The pulse tube refrigerator (PTR) or pulse tube cryocooler is a developing technology that emerged largely in the early 1980s with a series of other innovations in the broader field of thermoacoustics.In contrast with other cryocoolers (e.g. In applications the first stage also operates as a temperature-anchoring platform for e.g. For temperatures between 10 and 50 K lead is most suitable. From this results, J.Y. Later this record was broken by the Giessen Group that managed to get even below 1.3 K. In a collaboration between the groups from Giessen and Eindhoven a temperature of 1.2 K was reached by combining a PTR with a superfluid vortex cooler.[14]. al. {\displaystyle \xi } The compressor was coupled to a Pulse Tube developed by Dr. R. Radebaugh at NIST. The coefficient of performance of PTRs at room temperature is low, so it is not likely that they will play a role in domestic cooling. It is the first pulse tube which was built in 1963 by Gifford and Longsworth. [14] conclude that the inertance tube cannot provide the optimum impedance for small cooling powered pulse tube because of turbulence in flow. 643-647, 2006, Taekyung Ki, Sangkwon Jeong, Design and analysis of compct work recovery phase shifter for pulse tube refrigerator, cryogenics, vol. In the heat exchanger X3, it releases heat and cools down to the ambient temperature TH.[6]. Not very efficient, but tremendous potential for reliability! Recent developments of superconductive industries require cryocoolers with cooling power higher than 1 W in the 70–80 K temperature range. to 0.9. Coating inside the pulse tube also gives better refrigeration effect. Pulses from the pulse generator cause reciprocation of the expander displacer to in turn cause refrigeration and cooldown thereof. Figure 1 represents the Stirling-type single-orifice Pulse-Tube Refrigerator (PTR), which is filled with a gas, typically helium at a pressure varying from 10 to 30 bar. Cooling effect can be increase by replacing 3He with 4He as a working gas. Their new design had a base temperature of 105K [4]. They are applied in infrared detection systems, for reduction of thermal noise in devices based on (high-Tc) superconductivity such as SQUIDs, and filters for telecommunication. I. 4 Schematic diagram of double inlet pulse tube refrigerator (DIPTR). The quality of the analytic models has also improved over the years. Because of the pressure difference gas which compressed in the compressor it works as a piston and compress the gas in the pulse tube and this process increase the temperature of the gas. PTRs can be classified according to their shape. This is known as double inlet pulse tube refrigerator (Fig. [16] With two-stage PTRs temperatures of 2.1 K, so just above the λ-point of helium, have been obtained. M. Azadi et. Sarangi, CFD simulation of a GiffordMcMahon type pulse tube refrigerator, International Journal of Thermal Sciences, vol. After further studies and modify the dimensions, they were able to achieve a low temperature of 124 K at one end when the closed end, in the atmosphere was cooled with water. And Radebaugh et. Schematic diagram of Basic Pulse Tube Refrigerator (BPTR). The open end which is cold end is connected to the regenerator which is a second heat exchanger. PTRs are also suitable for cooling MRI-systems and energy-related systems using superconducting magnets. Choudhury, R.K. Sahoo ,S.K. For some time it looked as if it would be impossible to cool below the lambda point of 4He (2.17 K), but the Low-Temperature group of the Eindhoven University of Technology managed to cool to a temperature of 1.73 K by replacing the usual 4He as refrigerant by its rare isotope 3He. Regenerative material GdAlO3 can be use to achieve less than 5K temperature for 2 stage pulse tube refrigerator. Wall thickness of pulse tube affect the cooling effect. One of the most active is the group lead by Prof. Matsubara (Nihon University, Japan). If the regenerator and the tube are in line (as in fig. 52, pp. This paper describes about pulse tube refrigerator and review of experimental, analytical and CFD work carried out on pulse tube refrigerator. A system of valves (usually a rotating valve) alternatingly connects the high-pressure and the low-pressure side of the compressor to the hot end of the regenerator. The disadvantage of the linear PTR is that the cold spot is in the middle of the cooler. . To find out the best regenerator material porosity, They set operating frequency for all case is 34 Hz, pulse tube diameter 5mm and length is 125mm for changing porosity of material. The success of this cooler (1 watt at 35 K with 200 watts of input power) lead to TRW being selected to build a Pulse Tube for the AIRS instruments for the EOS program. In 1982, Dr. Kittel in partnership with Dr. R. Radebaugh of NIST started developing Pulse Tubes. 2 a,b), was exported through Livelink to COMSOL Multiphysics. 2. First they assumed an adiabatic cold end heat exchanger; another assumed a known cooling load. In so-called dry magnets, coolers are used so that no cryoliquid is needed at all or for the recondensation of the evaporated helium. {\displaystyle {\dot {Q}}_{L}} pressure of 5.0 MPa, in order to maintain high cooling power and high efficiency in a very compact package. 514-520, 1990, L.M.Qiu, T.Numazawa, G.Thummers, Performance improvement of pulse tube cooler below 4 k by use of GdAlO3 regenerator material, cryogenics, vol. The gas flows through the valves are accompanied by losses which are absent in the Stirling-type PTR. ξ This is the most common shape of PTRs. 6 7. This observation led to the Orifice Pulse Tube. Record low temperatures achieved with this basic pulse tube design are 124K with a single stage and 79K using two stages. Cooling capacity is the cooling produced per minute. After a few years the refrigerator had reached 120 K in single stage and 85 K in double stage. 31, pp. It has to satisfy conflicting requirements: it must have a low flow resistance (so it must be short with wide channels), but the heat exchange should also be good (so it must be long with narrow channels). It has also been suggested that pulse tubes could be used to liquefy oxygen on Mars.[5]. The swept volume of the compressor would be very high (up to one liter and more). Figure 6. [9][10][11][12][13] This is shown in figure 4, where the lowest temperature for PTRs is plotted as a function of time. They are the most common type of cryogenic refrigeratorsold industrially.). spot-cooling effect produced in a tube into which gas is introduced tangentially, producing vortex flow. By changing the valve opening conditions in DIPTR for different boundary conditions variation in refrigerating effect analyzed by banjare et. Meanwhile; Dr. G. Swift at Los Alamos with DoE funds had continued developing the thermo-acoustic compressor. GM-type of PTR.

The piston moves periodically from left to right and back. This increased the phase shift between the pressure and mass flow oscillations. K. R. Parikh, G. Patel, M. C. Barot, Performance Investigation of Basic Pulse Tube Refrigerator by using S.S. Regenerative Material and its mesh size, International Journal Of Engineering Innovation And Scientific Research.Vol.1 (1), p. 21-24. In the tube the gas is thermally isolated (adiabatic), so the temperature of the gas in the tube varies with the pressure. The material must have a large heat capacity. The extra gas, even though it provides no refrigeration power, but it must be cooled by the regenerator which increases the heat transfer load but does not work and therefore limits refrigeration. Xu, A.T.A.M. If the gas from the compressor space moves to the right it enters the regenerator with temperature TH and leaves the regenerator at the cold end with temperature TL, hence heat is transferred into the regenerator material. Their ideal modeling is sufficient to quantify the maximum performance, which could be reached, but dynamic modeling is required modification in design. To understand why the low-pressure gas returns at a lower temperature, look at figure 1 and consider gas molecules close to X3 (at the hot end) which move in and out of the tube through the orifice. Kundu ABSTRACT Thermodynamic model of the pulse tube refrigeration (PTR) system has been developed based on the ideal gas behaviour to study the cooling effect at the cold end of the refrigerator. [9] are worked on pulse tube refrigerator with L type pulse tube and two orifice valves they conclude that in L type pulse tube big wall thickness affect the lowest temperature of the system and they reach at the lowest temperature of 72 K at 2.5 Hz frequency. The pulse tube is a simple tube which has one open end and one closed end. Regenerative material GdAlO3 can be use to achieve less than 5K temperature for 2 stage pulse tube refrigerator. The power input to the PWG and cryocooler can be scaled according to the refrigeration need, as opposed traditional refrigeration where capacity control is achieved by on-off operation. The increase in mass flow rate in the regenerator reduces the effectiveness of the regenerator, and increase the pressure loss. In 1981, after hearing a talk by Dr. Wheatley (16th International Conference on Low temperature Physics), Dr. P. Kittel of NASA's Ames Research Centre recognized the potential for space applications of a cooler with a single moving part. For a perfectly reversible cooler, M. Qiu et al. The main advantages are greater reliability and lower cost compared to the Stirling cooler and an order of magnitude lower mass, lower cost, and longer life than the current state of the art coolers: stored cryogens. Due to its clever design the PTR does not have such a displacer. The first breakthrough came the next year. Also the combination of cryocoolers with 3He-4He dilution refrigerators for the temperature region down to 2 mK is attractive since in this way the whole temperature range from room temperature to 2 mK is easier to access. This is the lowest temperature achieved by mechanical refrigerators. It can also be used to cool detectors and electronic devices. The pulse tube was fully characterized2 in a vacuum chamber so that refrigeration loads could be determined from the input power. The gas acoustic power determines the refrigeration efficiency so that it is critical to improve the electric-to-acoustic efficiency of the linear compressor to design a highly efficient PTR. As a consequence its temperature will be higher than TH. This reduced the refrigeration power per unit of compressed mass and hence increases the regenerator loss. In 1994, the first commercially available Pulse Tube was announced in Japan by Iwatani as a replacement for the cold head of a Gifford- McMahon cooler. The influence of the double inlet valve on the cooling effect and characteristics of inertance tubes are numerically studied and then an experimental setup is built to verify the numerical results. Q For the cold PSM, only an inertance tube is used as a phase shifter. Gu, The experimental investigation of a pulse tube refrigerator with a L type pulse tube and two orifice valves, Cryogenics, vol. Your email address will not be published. At the 1983 Cryogenic Engineering Conference, Dr. E. Mikulin (Moscow Bauman State Technical University, Russia, formerly the Moscow High Technical School, USSR) showed that the efficiency could be increased by inserting an orifice and reservoir at the hot end. Coating inside the pulse tube also gives better refrigeration effect. For the 70K- and the 4K temperature regions PTRs are commercially available. Fig.5 Schematic diagram of inertance tube pulse tube refrigerator (IPTR). The cryocooler was designed with the ability to provide rapid cooldown. The cryocooler was designed with the ability to provide rapid cooldown. Rout, A.K.

They found that the cooling power and coefficient of performance of two stage pulse tube cooler below 4K has been increase gradually by using the newly developed ceramic magnetic regenerative material GdAlO3. W.E.Gifford and R. C. Longsworth, Pulse tube refrigeration process, Advanced Cryogenic Engineering, vol. This technique was further refined into the multiple by-pass Pulse Tube by Dr. Zhou of the Academia Sinica, China (7th International Cryocooler Conference, 1992). The use of valves in the GM cryocooler or with pulse tubes driven with a GM-type compressor and rotary valve (known as GM-type pulse tubes) reduces their efficiency The rapid cooling technique makes use of a resonant phenomenon in the inertance tube and reservoir system to decrease the flow impedance and thereby increase the acoustic power and refrigeration power in the system when the cold end is near room temperature. The enthalpy flow, as the cooling performance representative of the pulse tube, reaches maximum for an optimum convergent taper angle. As the high-temperature part of this type of PTR is the same as of GM-coolers this type of PTR is called a GM-type PTR. Required fields are marked *. 4). Fig 1. = [8] He reached a temperature of 105 K. Soon after that, PTRs became better due to the invention of new variations. 2, 2013, Y.P. Pressure drop in the regenerator is one of the effective parameter as the pressure drop increase with increase in L/D ration of the regenerator, cooling effect will decrease. al. 150 mesh sizes of wires in regenerator gives better cooling. The first pulse tube refrigerator was discovered accidently at Syracuse University by Gifford and Longsworth in the 1960s as they were developing the Gifford McMahon [1] refrigerator. By the late 1980's, a good theoretical understanding had been developed at NIST (NASA funded). [2][3], Pulse tube refrigerator works on the principle of surface heat pumping which is shown in fig.

Different types of refrigerators are available namely GM, Stirling, Pulse tube (PT) and JT whose performances Mikulin, A.A. Tarasov, and M.P. This model has shown that there are secondary flows in the system thatearlier 1-D models had ignored. After fine tuning of the valves, a minimum average temperature of 1.78 K was obtained. In those cases, the double-inlet valve can assist better impedance and further improve the cooling performance. B., Qui L. M., Gan Z. H., He Y.L., CFD study of a simple orifice pulse tube cooler, Cryogenics, vol. The gas acoustic power determines the refrigeration efficiency so that it is critical to improve the electric-to-acoustic efficiency of the linear compressor to design a highly efficient PTR. At the cold end of the tube, the gas enters the tube via X2 when the pressure is high with temperature TL and return when the pressure is low with a temperature below TL, hence taking up heat from X2 : this gives the desired cooling effect at X2. There is a shuttle loss occurred in pulse tube this loss can be reduced by inside coating of Teflon material in the pulse tube this experimentally observed by Taekyung Ki and sangkwon jeong [10]. Joseph Waldo, in the 1960s, invented the so-called Basic Pulse Tube Refrigerator. As a consequence, the refrigeration effect is distrib- uted rather than occurring in a readily identifiable expansion space. INTRODUCTION The cryocoolers produce a known cooling power at a specific operating temperature in the cryogenic range. reaction chamber, having attached a cooling system with an adjacent cooling agent 2 liquid) holder (Fig. On its return the heat stored within the regenerator is transferred back into the gas. (Gifford-McMahon coolers are a low cost variation of a Stirling cooler. al was the modified in basic pulse tube refrigerator and added a small orifice valve at the warm end of the pulse tube in 1984, An orifice is just a needle valve or throttle valve to regulate flow. Figure 3 shows a Coaxial Pulse Tube which is a more useful configuration in which the regenerator surrounds the central pulse tube. On the other hand, the inertance tube can provide the optimum impedance for large cooling powered pulse tube refrigerators. Literature Review • Pulse tube refrigerator units operate as closed systems where no mass is exchanged between the Cryocooler and the environment. is given by Carnot's theorem : However, a pulse-tube refrigerator is not perfectly reversible due to the presence of the orifice, which has flow resistance. Pulse tubes are particularly useful in space-based telescopes such as the James Webb Space Telescope[4] where it is not possible to replenish the cryogens as they are depleted. This produced a cooler with no moving parts (4th Interagency Meeting on Cryocoolers, 1990). This direct flow compresses and expands the warm working gas in the pulse tube, and reduces the amount of gas that needs to be pre-cooled by the regenerator. 46, pp. It can also be used to cool detectors and electronic devices. Ans: c 73. Pulse tube diameters were about 20 to 25 mm and operating frequencies were about 1 Hz. A single-stage pulse tube cryocooler was optimized to provide 50 W of net refrigeration power at 50 K when driven by a pressure oscillator that can produce up to 2.8 kW of acoustic power at 60 Hz. 191-201, 2000, M. Azadi, A. Jafarian, M. Timaji, Scientia Iranica, analytical investigation of oscillating flow heat transfer in pulse tubes, Vol 20, pp. Unlike ordinary refrigeration cycles which utilize the vapor compression cycle, a PTR implements the oscillatory compression and expansion of gas within a closed volume to achieve the desired refrigeration. They started in 1987 with a development contract from NASA Ames and with substantial in-house funding. After analysis they found that by opening double inlet valve 20% and orifice valve 30% offers a better potential for higher performance and efficiency compared with other values of valve openings. There was a small reservoir associated with the heat exchanger at the warm end of the pulse tube. As a consequence, the refrigeration effect is distrib- uted rather than occurring in a readily identifiable expansion space. the pulse tube cryocooler has an inherent potential to be more reliable and have less vibration than either the Stirling or GM cryocoolers. One ton of the refrigeration is (A) The standard unit used in refrigeration problems (B) The cooling effect produced by melting 1 ton of ice (C) The refrigeration effect to freeze 1 ton of water at 0°C into ice at 0°C in 24 hours (D) The refrigeration effect to produce 1 ton of ice at NTP conditions Bronze or stainless steel is often used. Pulse tube 16 is connected to tube 46 at inlet port 50 of the pulse tube and communicates with reservoir 20 through tube 52 secured at outlet port 54 of the pulse tube. 69-79, 1964, E.I. de Waele, and Y.L. ξ Molecules flow into the tube when the pressure in the tube is low (it is sucked into the tube via X3 coming from the orifice and the buffer). Originally this was considered to be impossible. Pulse tube cryocoolers are used in industrial applications such as semiconductor fabrication and in military applications such as for the cooling of infrared sensors. [18] they did three different simulations are analyzed. So the name "pulse" tube cooler is misleading, since there are no pulses in the system. Later in the cycle the same mass of gas is pushed out from the tube again when the pressure inside the tube is high. Replacing 4He by 3He, at the same valve settings and operating parameters, the minimum average temperature goes down to 1.87 K and the cooling power at 4.2 K is enhanced about 60%.

Zhang, W.S. The Pulse tube refrigerator (PTR) consists of aftercooler, regenerator, cold heat exchanger, pulse tube, hot heat exchanger, orifice tube and surge volume. 47, pp. Q 1.

Dr. J. Wheatley at the DOE's Los Alamos National Laboratory took interest in this kind of technology: thermo- acoustic engines and coolers. [7] worked on pulse tube refrigerator by changing regenerative material GdAlO3. Current work at Ames also includes the fabrication of a 4-stage Pulse Tube based on the multiple by- pass approach. They found that When Stycast 2850 FT material is used as the coating material, the no-load temperature they obtain from 38.4 K to 34.9 K and the cooling capacity is improved by 0.4W. 29, pp. With 4He, a minimum average temperature of 2.19 K was reached. The existence of these secondary flows has been confirmed by flow measurements made at NASA Ames (8th International Cryocooler Conference, 1994). The secondary orifice is designed as it allow about 10% of the gas, which does not contribute to refrigeration, to travel directly from the pressure oscillator to the warm end of the pulse tube, bypassing the regenerator pulse tube arrangement. 629- 637, 1984, R.

[12] developed both dynamic and ideal models for better understanding of the energy and entropy. 105-110, 2012. This means that the construction of a PTR is simpler, cheaper, and more reliable. The rapid cooling technique makes use of a resonant phenomenon in the By bending the PTR we get a U-shaped cooler. The coolers were driven by a simple loudspeaker; while the engines had no moving parts except working fluid. (1 ton = 211kJ/min of cooling effect). However, in the pulse tube it would seem that the cycle followed by a particular element * Author to whom all correspondence should be addressed of gas depends on its initial position within the tube. which has become the standard implementation. The efficiency of the pulse tube refrigerator can be increased by maximizing the refrigeration power per unit mass flow. very hot, whereas the open end near the compressor was cool. Y. Xu, et al. Gupta, B.K. 30, pp. In process 3-4 piston moves up and produces pressure difference in the system therefore it produce adiabatic expansion of the gas with the drop in temperature to the wall temperature thus it produce the cooling effect during the low pressure, gas which leaves the pulse tube during this process it also colder than heat exchanger, which provides cooling for thermal load at Tc in the heat exchanger. 100Å/pulse, on up to 20.000 pulses of 25ns at a frequency of 10 Hz high, is condensed layer -by layer on the substrate. However, the lambda transition of 4He is a barrier for reaching temperatures below 2 K. Theoretical analysis in this paper shows that, using 3He, the temperature limit is below 2 K, and the efficiency of a 4 K pulse tube refrigerator can be improved significantly. Zhu, Wu and Chen addressed this problem by adding a direct connection, or secondary orifice, between the warm end of the regenerator and the warm end of the pulse tube [6].
