WHAT DOES IT MEAN?
ALL NEW REFRIGERATION ON REFURBISHED CRYOSTATS
We don’t mess around when it comes to cryostat refurbishment. If you’ve purchased a cryostat from Rankin before, you know that you may have paid a bit more with us than other refurbished instrument suppliers. This is because we put more into our cryostats to ensure that every machine is operating at like-new condition, per OEM specifications, before leaving our facility. We have a refrigeration expert on our biomedical team, who is dedicated to refrigeration on cryostat refurbishment.
RESET THE LIFESPAN
The refrigeration system is the most common system to fail on a cryostat. We’ve resurrected countless cryostats over the years, resetting their lifespan with all new refrigeration.
Every cryostat is tested at 3μ, 5μ, and 10μm, and must pass with <0.15μ margin of error per turn, even more strict that the OEM protocol during manufacturing.

Compressors are like the heart of the cryostat - so when they die, your cryostat no longer cools. Regardless of the condition of any cryostat that we procure, a new compressor gets installed, along with the aforementioned items. This ensures that any cryostat you purchase from Rankin has a new "heart". We have found that if a compressor is not replaced properly, it can do more harm than good. You can have peace of mind knowing that if you purchase a refurbished cryostat from Rankin, you have a certified refrigeration expert technician doing the job right.
