Long Hoses Option

The standard Cryostation is equipped with 10 foot hoses between the compressor and the cryostat for the compressed helium. For users who want to move the compressor away from the cryostat, a 30 foot hose option is available.

Figure 1 below shows the standard system interconnections. Figure 2 below shows the system with the long hose option. Note this option affects the hose length, the compressor communication cable, the cryocooler control line, and the compressor power cable. These hoses are available in lengths of 10 feet (standard) and 30 feet. In the case of the 30 foot hoses, an extended power cable is not provided, as it is expected that the user will plug the compressor into a separate wall power source.
