Stainless Steel Cooling Coil intended use / operation
- The cooling coil stabilizes the temperature of the liquide in an ultrasonic cleaning unit, by counteracting the heat energy which is taken into the cleaning bath by the ultrasound
- During ultrasonic operation the ultrasonic energy transmitted into the cleaning liquid is transformed into heat in an ordinary physical process due to which the cleaning bath is continuously heated
- If a specific cleaning bath temperature must not be exceeded (e.g. 40°C for the removal of proteins or for special laboratory applications), the use of a cooling coil is required to stabilize the cleaning bath temperature
- The cooling coil must be connected to a closed cycle cooling system (cryostat) only
Note: The liquid in an ultrasonic tank may be cooled down to temperatures below the ambient room temperature only up to a certain degree to prevent the forming of condensation.
Frequently Bought Together
Connection of the Cooling Coil to a laboratory cooling device
- Use suitable hoses to connect the cooling coil to the available cryostat and secure the connection by means of hose clamps
- Hook the cooling coil onto the edge of the ultrasonic tank. The cooling coil must be completely covered in liquid
- Set the temperature of the cooling liquid at the cryostat. The cooling temperature set value depends on the capacity of the ultrasonic tank, on the ultrasonic energy taken into the bath and on the temperature required for the cleaning application
- Use a thermometer to check the temperature of the cleaning liquid regularly during operation to ensure that the temperature does not fall below the allowed limit temperature
The manufacture cannot be held liable for any damage, e.g. on the ultrasonic cleaning unit, on further equipment or on samples placed inside the ultrasonic tank, caused by inappropriate cooling. The operator is responsible for monitoring the temperature of the cleaning bath.
