Just like an air-conditioning unit uses refrigerant to cool the air, medical chillers use refrigerant to cool fluid used in medical equipment processing. If you’re looking for medical chillers for your imaging or medical facility, this article will outline the different types of gas refrigerants available to keep your lifesaving equipment running strong. First, we’ll start with a definition of medical chillers and outline a few of their primary field applications.
What are medical chillers?
Medical chillers are specialized industrial process chillers that use air, water, or a split configuration to keep medical equipment processes cool. With year-round cooling capability, temperature accuracy, reliability, and energy efficiency, medical chillers are designed specifically for optimal performance and uptime.
Medical chillers are used for many types of imaging and other equipment, including:
- MRI machines
- CT scanners
- Linear accelerators (LINAC)
- Laboratory reagents
- Pharmaceutical equipment
