Snow River™ — Robust capacity and cost-effective performance at demanding deep temperature

Abbess brings a unique and innovative team approach to the challenges of temperature technology in a wide range of industries and applications. Our core team of engineers and technicians draws on extensive experience in the design and manufacture of systems for environmental simulation, experimental laboratory activities, and industrial process applications. Sensitive to end-user concerns about capacity, ramp rate, and temperature coherence, Abbess systems are sized right and provided with clear and agile controls.

Whether its development of a customized modular redundant refrigeration system for -96C cryo storage or the design and manufacture of robust and capacious deep temperature test systems for 6C/min profiling, Abbess is up to the task of bringing down the temperature.

Snow River™ Chillers and Refrigeration Systems:

Snow River™ Refrigeration System (-96C and -50C) A direct expansion refrigeration system with a programmable temperature range from ambient to -96C that is capable of being fully integrated to supply stable, precise and reliable cooling.
These Systems are engineered to be efficient and economical thermal systems capable of providing precise and reliable temperatures in the range of 200C to -96C.
Abbess's Snow River™ Thermal System is a low-cost, liquid circulating, single-stage chiller that is capable of being fully integrated so that is supplies stable, precise and reliable temperatures in the range of -40C to +200C to any heat exchanger or thermal load.

Applications — Refrigeration Products Available from Abbess

Cascade liquid chiller and aluminum cube. This chiller system is capable of achieving -50C and bath temperatures 0f -40C
Our cascade liquid chiller systems are the most flexible closed loop cooling systems that Abbess currently offers. These systems eliminate the high running cost of liquid nitrogen systems and offers precise control across a wide range of temperatures from 150C to -96C.
Abbess's -96C Cascade Refrigeration System is a powerful closed loop cooling system that can be fully integrated into many systems and chambers.
This system is configured as a standalone cooling unit with thermal plate, flexible hoses to isolate from any vibration caused by the refrigerator.
This Vacuum Cold Trap is designed to precipitate vapors like water and related materials from gas streams developed in a vacuum processing or drying operation.
This system allows articles under test placed inside to be exposed to high vacuum pressure as well as various temperatures via the heated and cooled Thermal Plate Assembly. A Thermal Vacuum Cycle Controller (TVCC) is used to automate and control functions.
The Abbess Multimode Thermal Vacuum Chamber System serves as the flexible platform for a range of thermal vacuum testing and experimentation methods. Multimode is cooling using 2 different methods.
The Abbess Instruments Vacuum System Cold Trap is designed to precipitate vapors and related and impurities from gases and gas streams under sustained vacuum pressure.
Our cascade refrigeration systems are the most powerful closed loop cooling systems that Abbess currently offers.
