Global standard helium compressor and oil separation system

Superconductivity is a leading-edge technology that is expected to be deployed in the future which research institutions around the world are applying and developing daily.

Liquid helium is one of the things used to create ultra-low temperature environments for experiments and research. However, half a century ago, there were only reciprocating-type compressors for compressing helium gas, and the durability of their sliding parts was a problem. Mayekawa solved the durability problem associated with long-term use by developing the world’s first system that used an oil-injection screw compressor. This system later became the global standard, and now supports testing environments at research institutions around the world.

A cooling system indispensable for high-temperature superconducting operations

In recent years, system development using high-temperature superconductivity functioning at the temperature of liquid nitrogen has been actively carried out. High efficiency is required for the cooling system of liquid nitrogen temperature for cooling high-temperature superconducting equipment and the thermal shielding of liquid helium.

Highly efficient Brayton refrigerators and cooling systems developed with Mayekawa’s unique technology can create highly efficient cooling and testing environments that will remain stable for the long term.
