Medical Chiller | STACT Air Cooled ChillersMRI, CAT Scan, & PET Scan Cooling
Medical Chillers Direct from the Manufacturer
When reliability, durability, and precise temperature control are top priorities, it is imperative to choose the best possible option for cooling your medical equipment.
Everyone at some point in their life deals with the medical industry, for better or worse. When you have the need to get an MRI or CAT Scan, you are not only hoping for positive results, but you also want the equipment to function properly the first time. There is a lot of preparation involved as a patient, so having to do the test all over again later due to equipment malfunction is not an option.
Medical Chillers are very demanding because they are not cooling a constant operating load. Their demand is very cyclical, meaning that, unlike most process cooling applications, the load ramps up quickly and then dissipates equally as fast.
The medical chiller must be able to handle the immediate shock of the load surge and manage to keep the cooling water at a precise temperature during that time. To do that, a standard mechanical temperature controller will not suffice.
We recommend a PLC based chiller controller. Smart Family uses our Smart Advance 3 microprocessor chiller controller. There is an overview video on Youtube of one of our portable chillers with the Smart Advance 3 chiller controller. You can view it below. Please note the color touchscreen.
Applications of Chillers for Medical Processes
At Smart Family of Cooling Products, we’re trusted by leading healthcare facilities — such as the Memorial Hermann Healthcare System, which ranks as one of the top 15 health systems in the U.S. — to keep their essential diagnostic imaging equipment cool and comfortable.
Medical applications of our chillers for include the following three uses.
We understand how critical it is to receive accurate results from your MRI machines, especially in emergency cases. When temperatures are left unmonitored, thus allowing your machine’s magnet to heat up, test results become inaccurate. That’s why we’ve engineered our MRI chillers to respond fast to temperature changes.
With our air-cooled medical chillers, which can include an intuitive Smart Advance 3 controller, you can measure your MRI machine’s temperature and monitor the response time and cooling power of our robust chillers. We offer custom sizes, including standard sizes that range from one to 100 tons.
CAT Scan Chillers
It’s a fast-paced world in a hospital — that’s why you need your CT or CAT machine to cool down fast. Without a chiller for your scanner, patients are left waiting 30 minutes or more while the x-ray tube in your scanner cools down. And that’s not an option anymore.
As a dedicated manufacturer of CAT scan chillers, we deliver chillers specially designed for providing fast, reliable and efficient cooling to your CAT scanners. That way, you can help more patients and their families, all while reducing your hospital’s operating costs.
PET Scan Chillers
Like CAT scanners, PET scanners generate a ton of heat when they’re in operation, which leads to a delay in patient care. That’s why it’s essential to not only have a chiller for your PET scan machine, but to have a chiller that’s dependable and delivers consistent performance.
With more than two decades of experience in manufacturing chillers for medical processes, you can trust Smart Family of Cooling to provide standard and customized chillers for your PET scanners that are ready to work around the clock as you diagnose and treat patients.
