Further Development of a Mixed Gas Joule Thomson Refrigerator
A mixed gas Joule Thomson refrigerator has distinct advantages over other cryocooler for certain applications. The system is compact, has good thermodynamic efficiency and low levels of vibration and noise. Further development of this refrigeration machine is possible by optimization of the gas mixture composition. A method was developed which permits a reduction by a large factor in the number of simulation calculations and thus shortens the optimization time considerably.
