    Liquid Cooled Medical Imaging/MRI Systems

    Better Patient Outcomes, Strong Revenue Stream

    Medical imaging is a main source of revenue (approximately $2,600 per scan) for medical facilities. More importantly, each scan provides a valuable diagnostic service for patients. If the equipment goes down, scans must be rescheduled which can be a major hit to patient satisfaction, not to mention revenue.

    Medical Facility Size

    Number of MRI Machines

    Scans Annually

    Small medical facility One MRI machine Up to 6,000 scans
    Major medical center Several MRI machines 18,000 scans

    To keep this valuable medical tool running, medical imaging and MRI equipment requires complex thermal management solutions. When the components in these imaging systems operate at optimal temperature levels, they provide sharper images and more reliable performance.

    How Are MRI System Cooled?

    Cooling most medical imaging and MRI equipment and their components is done by using a coolant, such as liquid helium or water, which is cooled using a specialized system called a cryocooler. Without liquid cooling, the helium or other coolant evaporates and leaks out which can cause extensive damage to the magnet.

    Optimize Medical Imaging and MRI Liquid Cooling with CPC Fluid Handling Connectors

    CPC’s work with industry leading medical equipment designers means we understand the challenges and requirements of liquid cooled medical imaging and MRI equipment. We are familiar with issues that medical imaging manufacturers frequently face ─ including ease of operation and small equipment footprint requirements and coolant selection, to name a few. CPC’s fluid handling experience and expertise resulted in the development of CPC’s purpose built Everis® Series of quick disconnect couplings and connectors for use in liquid cooling of electronics applications including imaging equipment and systems.

    How do CPC Everis Connectors Help Optimize Medical Imaging in Liquid Cooling Systems?

    • Purpose-built for liquid cooling applications such as medical imaging
    • Easy-to-use thumb latch design
    • Audible click for connection assurance
    • Compatible with a variety of coolant fluids
    • Use a robust, redundant seal design that eliminate leaks that could affect expensive imaging components
    • Variety of materials, sizes and configurations to meet medical imaging and MRI system design requirements

    Everis Quick Disconnect Couplings Designed for Liquid Cooled Imaging Equipment and MRI Systems

    Trusted Reliability

    CPC Everis liquid cooling couplings are purpose-built to help maintain the temperatures required for medical imaging and MRI systems to operate and deliver the best quality images possible. Everis QDs withstand pressures ─ side load, flexing, tensile forces ─ during installation and function continually with leak-free reliability.

    Dependable Durability

    Built for the non-stop demands of medical imaging and liquid cooled MRI applications, Everis non-spill connectors deliver optimized flow rates with excellent flow to size ratio for superior performance. CPC Everis couplings feature a valve design that is precision engineered to be compatible with a wide variety of possible liquid cooling system coolants. With robust redundant seals, CPC Everis liquid cooling connectors easily tolerate installation and use pressures without compromising the valve or seal, eliminating exposure of expensive systems and crucial electronic components to fluids.

    Overall Robustness

    Meeting the diverse needs of medical imaging equipment manufacturers, CPC Everis liquid cooling quick disconnects come in an expanding variety of sizes, termination options and materials including plated brass, aluminum, stainless steel, PPSU and other high-performance polymers. Configurations include blind mate, latched, straight and elbow connectors with seal options including EPDM, FKM and Viton™. All Everis liquid cooling solutions are rigorously tested ─ including materials testing, product testing and torture testing to failure ─ to meet product specifications. As a matter of fact, CPC offers reliable, reproducible performance and provides validation reports that support the performance attributes.

    Straightforward Serviceability

    If your medical imaging system goes down, CPC's latched Everis connectors are designed for ease in system serviceability, including drip-free non-spill disconnections for safer and quicker repair of the equipment. The simple-to-use thumb latch provides both ease and speed of installation and system maintenance. The Everis Series blind mate and swivel joint quick disconnect couplings are designed for use in hard to reach or small spaces.

    Connection Assurance

    With a sleek body and ergonomically designed thumb latch, Everis liquid cooling connectors deliver single-handed operation along with the audible CPC click to assure service technicians to know when the fluid lines are connected. The Everis Series low force to connect makes it simple to ensure a complete connection.
