Long Hoses

The standard Cryostation is equipped with 10 foot hoses between the compressor and the cryostat for the compressed helium. For users who want to move the compressor away from the cryostat, a 30 foot hose option is available.

The figure below shows the standard system interconnections. The break shows which hoses are affected for the long hose option:

  • Helium supply and return lines
  • Compressor communication cable
  • Coldhead power interconnect cable


Each of these cables are available in both 10 foot (standard) and 30 foot (extended) versions. An extended power cable is not provided, as it is expected that the user will plug the compressor into a separate wall power source.
