Helium Liquefiers, Purifiers and Recovery Systems

NexGen & ATL Liquefiers and Purifiers

Quantum Design’s full line of liquefiers and innovative helium recovery, storage and purification systems allow you to recover and liquefy the helium gas currently being lost from the normal boil off and helium transfers of your cryogenic instruments. A perfect helium recycling solution for research and medical cryostats, Quantum Design’s helium liquefiers and recovery systems allow you to break your dependence on cryogen suppliers and no longer be subject to higher costs and undependable supply. You will also be doing your part to conserve a precious natural resource which is vital to scientific research and medical treatment.

Quantum Design liquefiers are mobile and easy to move around your laboratory, which makes the transfer of liquid helium more convenient than ever. Liquefiers are doorway- and ramp-friendly, and the transfer process is as easy as transferring from your current storage dewars. Our helium recycling technology is also modular so that systems can be designed for needs small or large, and then expanded as needs grow.

What our customers are saying..
