Wet superconducting magnets

Wet superconducting magnets are conventional magnets cooled by liquid helium. Although there is a cost associated with using liquid helium, these magnets are cheaper to buy than cryogen-free magnets and they also enable for the most stringent magnet designs. Wet magnets are also compatible with the full range of ultra-low temperature inserts including dilution refrigerators (Kelvinox) and helium 3 refrigerators (Heliox).

The wet superconducting magnet product range includes:

  • Solenoids up to 22 T
  • Split pair magnets up to 15 T
  • Magneto-optical superconducting magnets
  • Vector rotate magnets or rotating magnets
  • High homogeneity magnets
  • Custom magnets

Cryogen-free magnets

Cryogen-free superconducting magnets or "dry magnets" are now available with fields up to 18 T. We offer different configurations to suit the majority of applications:

  • Room temperature bore stand-alone magnets up to 18 T using GM cryocoolers to enable either vertical or horizontal bore orientation
  • Integrated cryogen-free dilution refrigerator and magnet systems: 10 mK base temperature and magnetic field up to 15 T. The magnet cool down is now reduced by half due to a recent advance in heat pipe technology (patent pending) 
  • Integrated cyogen-free magnets with variable temperature insert: 1.5 K base temperature and magnetic field up to 18 T. 
  • Integrated cryofree 3He insert and magnet systems: 300 mK base temperature and magnetic field up to 15 T
  • Vector rotate magnet capability
  • Optical access available via the SpectromagPT

Delivered with the new Mercury iTC cryogenic temperature controller and MercuryiPS magnet power supply.
