Precise cooling now plays an integral role in how patients are diagnosed, operated on, and cared for. With new medical advancements comes the need for better cooling for more accurate outcomes. For medical device cooling, here are 3 important factors that can affect your performance, patient care, and your overall ROI:
UNDERSTANDING THE EQUIPMENT YOU ARE COOLING
When it comes to medical device cooling you have a plethora of options. But you need to remember that each manufacturer produces a slightly different variation of product.
For instance, no two MRI machines are the same. You will experience different thermal demands, designs, and water temperatures when operating at peak capacity.
To account for the difference in design and performance, you need to have a chiller specifically designed for your equipment you are using.

KNOW THE GEOGRAPHY YOU ARE OPERATING IN
Medical equipment needs the highest levels of uptime and reliability to continue to produce accurate results and diagnoses. Your geographic region you operate in can have a significant effect on performance.
For instance, and MRI machine in Wisconsin will have different operating levels and features than an MRI chiller installed in Arizona. The climate your technology operates in is a vital consideration – failure to plan for that temperature factor can result in significant downtime.

LEVERAGING CITY WATER BYPASS PANELS
If uptime and reliability are a consideration, you need to look at leveraging a city water bypass panel. A City Water ByPass Panel, helpful with MRI machines and Linear Accelerators, provides temporary back-up to critical cooling applications by diverting city water to the process.
It is installed near the equipment and plumbed into the chilled water supply/return loop. A sensor activates a series of solenoid valves when the chiller malfunctions, isolating the chiller circuit and allowing city water to flow to the process.
