Many different types of cooling shrouds
Flange adaption of evaporation sources, manipulators and measurement equipment to MBE systems
Closed cooling option (-C): protection against contamination of chamber and source
Integrated shutter option (-S)
Water or liquid nitrogen cooling
The separate cooling shrouds can be used in combination with evaporation sources that have no integrated water cooling. Due to their all-stainless steel construction, they are bakeable up to 250°C (TC reading 400°C) without water flow.

Furthermore, the option "closed cooling" (option -C) is available for CS type cooling shrouds. In this case the cooling tube is welded directly onto the flange.

Cooling shrouds fit most port flanges DN63CF or larger. They are equipped with a mounting flange to the port and a source flange which corresponds with the mounting flange of the evaporation source. Instead of an additional flange (option -R) a zero-length adapter flange can be used as mounting flange as well as source flange.

|The CS 200-150T is an example of a vertically mounted (face-down) cooling shroud, typically used for substrate manipulators, wafer heaters or measurement equipment in MBE systems.

Our cooling shrouds are compatible with most MBE systems as for example Riber, VG Semicon, Varian, Eiko, DCA, Veeco, Applied Epi and Omicron. For other systems please specify mounting flange, in-vacuum length, in-vacuum diameter, substrate size and the distance from cell orifice to the substrate. Cooling shrouds with mounting flange sizes from DN63CF up to DN200CF are available (see Specific data table below).
We offer water cooling shrouds. Liquid nitrogen (LN) cooling is possible for some shrouds on request. Optionally we offer shrouds with the cooling tube welded directly onto the flange ("closed cooling" option -C).
Some cooling shrouds are available with additional shutter (option -S). The shutter rod is guided in a tube inside the cooling shroud and a DN16CF flange is added to the mounting flange to carry the rotary shutter feedthrough. For automated processes we offer electrically driven soft-acting rotary shutter modules RSM in combination with shutter control units SCU.
