FPSC Stirling Cryocooler Working Principle in Analysis Instruments

A Stirling cryocooler operates based on the Stirling cycle, a thermodynamic cycle that involves the compression and expansion of a working fluid at different temperatures. Here’s a simplified explanation of how a Stirling cryocooler works in an analysis instrument:

  • Compression: The Stirling cryocooler typically consists of a piston within a cylinder. At the compression stage, the piston compresses a working gas (often helium) within the cylinder. This compression increases the pressure and temperature of the gas.
  • Transfer: The compressed gas is then transferred to a heat exchanger or regenerator. In the regenerator, the gas releases its heat to the surroundings and cools down. This step is crucial for the overall cooling process.
  • Expansion: After releasing heat, the cooled gas is expanded, causing it to absorb heat from the area to be cooled. This cooling effect is utilized to reach low temperatures required for specific applications, such as in analysis instruments.
  • Transfer (again): The expanded gas is then transferred back to the heat exchanger or regenerator. This time, the regenerator absorbs heat from the surroundings and heats up.
  • Return to Compression: The heated gas is returned to the compression stage, and the cycle repeats.
