Direct Medical Imaging is the exclusive distributor for KR Products medical chillers. KR Products use a very simple design, which makes use of an internal tank, this helps to better control temperature to your MRI. The majority of MRI scanners on the market today require a similar flow rate and temperature There are differences. Fortunately, Direct Medical Imaging stocks several different models to cater to most MRI scanners. We are also able to provide easily customizable options, such as high pressure pumps, digital temperature control and bypasses for extreme cold temperatures.
Most 1.5T GE models use the same cold head compressor. We usually use a 5 Ton packaged chiller for this application, this MRI chiller provides the flow and temperature needed for this model. Depending on the piping from the chiller to the cold head compressor, we may need to use a high pressure pump which is a low cost option, this will not add any extra time to your order processing.
Siemens MRI will usually need a 7.5 Ton chiller, although the manufacturer often specifies a 10 or 15 Ton chiller, the aforementioned water tank means that we are able to use a smaller chiller, which saves money on the purchase of the chiller, as well as reduced power requirements. Other MRI chillers do not utilize the tank in the same way, so they need to use a larger size. This is one of the reasons KR Products chillers are such an excellent and low cost replacement for MRI Chillers. Kraus KKT chillers, and Filtrine chillers are often much more expensive than KR Products chillers, and parts can be much more expensive. KR Products chillers, sold through Direct Medical Imaging have a one year warranty on parts and labor and a five year warranty on the compressor.
