An important component of refrigerators, operating with oscillatory flows, is the regenerator. Another type of Stirling cooler is the split-pair type Fig.

February 17, Released: The volume V is the volume between the two pistons. Left and right the thermal contact with the surroundings at the temperatures T a and T L is supposed to be perfect so that the compression and expansion are isothermal.

Small Vuilleumier Cryocooler : Cryocooler Performance Analysis Based on Simple Model

It is used to cool some particular application to cryogenic temperatures. The recent progress in the cryocooler field is for a great deal due to the development of new materials with a high heat capacity below 10K. When used as a cryocooler it is preferable to use gas mixtures instead of pure nitrogen. From left to right it consists of: The pressure variations in the cold head are obtained by connecting it periodically to the high- and low-pressure sides of a compressor by a rotating valve.


All the gas is at room temperature.

It leaves cyocooler exchanger at point c. In this way the efficiency is improved and the high pressure is much lower than bar. The Vuilleumier cryocooler is a heat engine which uses heat energy rather than mechanical energy to cyclically pressurize the working gas.

The analytical model can be used to clarity the working gas behavior in the system and determine the performance characteristics of the machine by calculating all losses to be mutually decoupled. This paper describes the specifications required for the machine, and detailes of design based an isothermal thermodynamic cycle. Next it enters the warm high-pressure side of the counterflow heat exchanger where it is precooled.

Demonstration testing of a Vuilleumier cryocooler with an integral

The liquid leaves the system at the bottom of the reservoir point e and the gas fraction 1- x flows into the cold low-pressure side of the counterflow heat exchanger point f. The Vuilleumier cryocooler has the desibn advantages of long lifetime and low mechanical vibration.

Transactions of vuilleymier Society of Mechanical Engineers. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. At the inlet of the compressor the gas is at room temperature K and a pressure of 1 bar point a. This is a cryocopler disadvantage of this type of cooler. From left to right it consists of a piston, a compression space, and heat exchanger all at ambient temperature T aa regenerator, and a heat exchanger, expansion space, and a piston all at the low temperature T L.

The thermodynamic and hydrodynamic properties of regenerators are very complicated, so one usually makes simplifying models. They provide stiffness in the radial direction and flexibility in the axial direction.

In practice the cycle is not divided in discrete steps as described above. These are conflicting requirements.

The pistons and the compressor casing don’t touch so no lubricants are needed and there is no wear. Usually helium is the working fluid.

The liquid fraction is x. The nominal dimensions of the first trial machine are length of mm, width of mm and height of mm.
