Title:
METHOD AND DEVICE FOR COOLING OBJECTS
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2014/026873
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
The invention relates to a method for cooling objects, in which a cooling medium is supplied from a first storage container (3) via a first cooling medium line (5) to an object (2) to be cooled, is brought into thermal contact with the latter and is then discharged via a second cooling medium line (16), which is characterised according to the invention in that after thermal contact with the object (2) the cooling medium is supplied via the second cooling medium line (16) to a second storage container (17) and stored there until a predefined level is reached in the first or second storage container (3, 17). The cooling medium is then supplied from the second storage container (17) to the object (2) for the purpose of cooling and brought into thermal contact with the latter, and then fed back into the first storage container (3), whereupon it is available again for cooling the object. Because the cooling medium is conducted in alternating directions between the two storage containers (3, 17), the same flow paths can at least partially be used in both flow directions. The invention is in particular suited to cooling superconductive cables.
