Eliminates the Need for Liquid Nitrogen, Delivers Premium Resolution, And Is Compatible with Multiple Detector Models

Oak Ridge, TN— The ORTEC Products Group of AMETEK® Advanced Measurement Technology has released the ICS-P4, adding a new model to its highly successful Integrated Cryocooling System (ICS) product line. The ICS-P4 extends liquid nitrogen (LN2)-free cooling to PopTop® High-Purity Germanium (HPGe) detectors, while simultaneously delivering premium detector resolution and high reliability.

ICS-P4 is fully compatible with ORTEC PopTop detectors and can be used with new or existing detectors. ICS-P4 incorporates a field-proven AMETEK SunPower® Stirling cooler and, like all ICS models, employs AVC™ (Active Vibration Cancellation) that virtually eliminates vibrational and audible noise for superior detector resolution.

ICS-P4 offers an easy, on-site upgrade for ORTEC PopTop, HPGe detectors. This allows customers with existing detectors to take full advantage of next-generation, electro-mechanical cryocooling technology, superior detector resolution, high reliability and the elimination of LN2 hazards and costs.

According to Gregor Geurkov, Product Manager for ORTEC Detectors, “The ICS family is now the preferred choice for customers over other electro-mechanical cooling options, where premium HPGe detector resolution and elimination of LN2 is required.”
