New Patent Pending AlN Chiller Technology

Press release date: Sep 30, 2013

Cary, IL – Durex Industries, a leading North American designer and manufacturer of heaters, temperature sensors, controls and thermal systems, recently announced successfully developing a new Chiller Technology based Aluminum Nitride (AlN) Ceramic Heater with an embedded Tungsten RTD sensor.  This patent pending Extreme Ceramic Chiller/Heater is capable of:

• Heating from 100 to 450°C @ 200°C per second
• Cooling from 450 to 100°C @ 100°C per second

This performance is based on Durex Industries’ multilayer monolithic ceramic technology that may include heaters, cooling microfluidic, RTD sensors, ground planes and other layers.  The high thermal conductivity and low temperature expansion properties of AlN enable the fast temperature response.  Applications for fast heat/cool chillers are common in semiconductor equipment and analytical instrumentation.
