Thermal analysis and design

We can recognize and predict thermal and thermo-mechanical effects which influence the system performance in an early stage of the system design. Thermo-mechanical design principles and thermal control strategies are implemented to guarantee system performance.

  • Modeling techniques (e.g. steady state and transient system modeling).


  • Design principles for thermal stability.


  • Thermal management for lifetime reliability and process quality.


  • Thermal conditioning techniques (e.g. local fluid stream heaters).


  • Thermal error compensation techniques.


  • Testing skills and tools (e.g. calibration techniques, transient system identification).


  • Software tools for analysis and modelling of thermal systems.


Conditioning and control hardware
  • Chillers for general water conditioning at 75 mK and 5 mK RMS stability, adding local fluid stream heaters reduces this to 0.5 mK RMS.


  • Temperature controlled enclosure (~1 m3) with 10 mK RMS stability.


Measurement hardware
  • Data acquisition hardware for measurement and thermal control.


  • Temperature sensors (NTCs, PTCs, thermocouples) for a wide array of applications and ranges.


  • Calibration setup for thermal sensors: Precision ±2 mK.
