Liquefiers Available With the Following Recovery Systems:

  • Direct Recovery

  • Recovery System with Medium Pressure Storage

  • Recovery System with High Pressure Storage

Direct Recovery

Quantum Design's Direct Recovery System is the most simple recovery system to use in order to gain the benefits of ATL80 or ATL160 liquefiers. Either liquefier model can be used with customer instrument to reclaim helium lost through normal boil off.

The Direct Recovery System consists of the following components:

X – Customer Instrument
A – Base ATL160 (or ATL80) Liquefier
B –  Compressor for ATL160
(compressor integrated with ATL80)
C – Back Pressure Controller
D –  ATL160 Power Distribution Unit
(not required with ATL80)


Recovery System with Medium Pressure Storage

Quantum Design's Recovery System with Medium Pressure Storage allows recovery, storage and purification of helium from normal and transfer boil off. This recovery system is perfect for customers with 1 or 2 cryogenic instruments who want to recovery almost all of the helium normally lost through normal operation and cryogenic transfers.

The Recovery System with Medium Pressure Storage consists of the following components:

X – Customer Instrument
A – Base ATL160 (or ATL80) Liquefier
B – Compressor for ATL160
(compressor integrated with ATL80)
C – Helium Purification Unit
D – Low Pressure Buffer Tank
E – Medium Pressure Storage Tank
(1000 liters)
F – Back Pressure Controller
G – ATL160 Power Distribution Unit
H – AT Recovery Hub – MP
I – Low Pressure Stand


Recovery System with High Pressure Storage

Quantum Design's Recovery System with High Pressure Storage allows recovery, storage and purification of helium from normal and transfer boil off. This recovery system is perfect for customers with multiple cryogenic instruments or large, multi-room laboratories who want to recovery almost all of the helium normally lost through normal operation and cryogenic transfers.

The Recovery System with High Pressure Storage consists of the following components:

X – Customer Instrument
A – Base ATL160 (or ATL80) Liquefier
B – Compressor for ATL160
(compressor integrated with ATL80)
C – ATP30 Purifier
D – Compressor for ATP30 Purifier
E – Helium Gas Bag and Controller
F – Back Pressure Controller
G – High Pressure Recovery Compressor
H –  ATL160 Power Distribution Unit
(not required with ATL80)
