Abstract
In this paper the SRI family of Le-tehnika rotary cryocoolers is presented (SRI401, SRI423/SRI421 and SRI474). The Stirling coolers cooling power range starts from 0.25W to 0.75W at 77K with available temperature range from 60K to 150K and are fitted to typical dewar detector sizes and powers supply voltages. The DDCA performance optimizing procedure is presented. The procedure includes cooler steady state performance mapping and optimization and cooldown optimization. The current cryogenic performance status and reliability evaluation method and figures are presented on the existing and new units. The latest improved SRI401 demonstrated MTTF close to 25’000 hours and the test is still on going.
