Introduction
BROOKS-CRYOGENICS Helium Refrigeration System

User Manual
BROOKS-CRYOGENICS Helium Refrigeration System
The operation of BROOKS-CRYOGENICS’ cryopumps is based on a closed loop
helium expansion cycle. The system is made up of the cryopump, which contains the
cold head, and the helium Compressor which compresses the helium gas.
Refrigeration is produced in the cryopump cold head through periodic expansion of
high pressure helium in a regenerative process. The high pressure helium is provided
by the Compressor. Low pressure helium returning from the cold head is compressed
to the necessary high pressure to be returned to the cold head. The energy required
to compress the helium is rejected as heat through the cooling water.
High pressure room temperature helium is transferred to the cold head through the
supply lines. After expansion, low pressure helium is returned to the Compressor (at
or near room temperature) to repeat the cycle in a closed loop fashion. Large separation distances can be accommodated between the Compressor and the cryopump.
In the Compressor, helium is compressed using a highly reliable, oil-lubricated commercial Compressor. Helium purification takes place via several stages of oil removal.
The final stage of purification is performed with a replaceable adsorber cartridge. To
maintain peak efficiency, the adsorber must be replaced every three years. The 9700A
Compressor is shown in Figure 1-1.

Operation
Adjusting System Helium Pressure
The BROOKS-CRYOGENICS high vacuum pump system consists of a compressor,
flex lines, and cryopumps. Each component is charged with helium before shipment.
After all cryopumps, helium lines, and manifolds are attached to the compressor, the
system static helium charge pressure must be verified before system operation. Once the
static helium system pressure has been verified, the system is ready for operation.
After cooldown, the normal system operating pressure is recorded.
NOTE: The 9700A Compressor is designed for continuous operation and should remain
ON even when the cryopumps are in a regeneration cycle.
Static Helium System Pressure Verification
The proper system static helium charge pressure is necessary so that the cryopumps
operate at maximum performance as well as to assure that the compressor will operate below the maximum design motor winding temperature which will maximize the
life of the compressor motor.
1.
Ensure the Compressor and Cryopump(s) are OFF.
2.
Ensure all system components are connected together as described in Chapter
4: Installation.
3.
Allow all system components to acclimate to a temperature between 60º F and
80º F (15.5º C - 26.6º C).
4.
Read the compressor helium pressure gauge located on the compressor rear
panel as shown in Figure 1-5. Compare the gauge reading to the appropriate
50/60 Hz line frequency value (depending upon your system installation) indicated in Table 5-1.
5.
If the static helium charge pressure is not within the ranges as indicated in
Table 5-1, then adjust the charge pressure as described in Chapter 6: Maintenance.

NOTE: The use of a higher helium charge pressure for 50 Hz operation is necessary to compensate for the slower speed at which the compressor operates at 50 Hz. The static
charge level for 60 Hz remains at 220 - 230 PSIG.
NOTICE
Exceeding the recommended system static helium charge pressure
will result in the compressor and cryopump safety relief valves
opening and releasing excess helium gas.
Compressor Startup and Operation
The system may be operated once the helium charge pressure is correct. Perform the
following steps to start the compressor:
1.
Set the System Circuit Breaker to the ON (UP) position.
2.
Set the Control Circuit Breaker to the ON (UP) position.
3.
Close all Cryopump gate valves.
4.
Refer to the appropriate On-Board Module Programming and Operation
manual or Cryo-Torr Cryopump Installation and Service manual (that came
with your pump) and perform the cryopump start-up procedure.
5.
Once the second stage temperature for all cryopumps is below 17K, record the
compressor pressure gauge reading as the normal system operating pressure.
NOTE: During compressor operation, the compressor gauge reads the pressure of the gas
entering the compressor prior to it being compressed.
6.
5-2
Affix a copy of the data next to the compressor gauge on each compressor. This
data is to be verified for each tool installation and whenever a configuration
change is made affecting the amount of system helium gas and line volume.

Operation
Static Helium System Pressure Verification
The compressor pressure reading will decrease from the normal system operating
pressure during cryopump regeneration or if fewer cryopumps are being operated.
These are normal variations in the compressor pressure reading and should not be
cause for concern.
If you have concerns about system performance changing, then check the normal system operating pressure which was determined in Compressor Startup and Operation in
this chapter. If the normal system operating pressure is not correct, check the system
for leaks.
Once the leaks have been repaired, helium must be added to return the system to normal operating system pressure as described in Suggested Maintenance Equipment of
Helium Circuit Components
On occasion, it may be necessary to replace components such as cryopumps, helium
gas lines or compressors, or change the configuration of the system. Whenever any of
these conditions occur, Static Helium System Pressure Verification should be performed to ensure that static helium pressure has not changed.
NOTICE
Several compressors on a single manifold feeding a common supply
header and a common return header require special precautions.
Contact Brooks Automation for a review of the intended installation
and for specific technical instructions.

Open the gas charge control valve very slowly to allow a slight amount of
helium to escape. Leave the valve open until the helium pressure gauge indicates one of the following:
•
The appropriate value is in Table 5-1 if the compressor is OFF and acclimated to a temperature between 60º F and 80º F (15.5º C - 26.6º C).
•
The value previously recorded in the Compressor Startup and Operation procedure in Chapter 5: Operation if the compressor is ON.
Close the gas charge control valve and install the flare cap.
Increasing Helium Pressure
Use the following procedure to increase the helium pressure if the indicated pressure
is below the appropriate value as shown in Table 5-1.
NOTICE
If helium is being added more than once every several months,
check for leaks caused by improperly connected self-sealing
connections or any mechanical joint within the Compressor.
Adding Helium
NOTE: You must obtain the normal system operating pressure from the Compressor
Startup and Operation procedure in Chapter 5: Operation to perform this procedure. If the normal system operating pressure is unknown, then shut the compressor OFF and perform instead the Static Helium System Pressure Verification
procedure in Chapter 5: Operation.
This procedure ensures that both the regulator and the charging line will be purged of
air and that the air trapped in the regulator will not diffuse back into the helium bottle. For best results, BROOKS-CRYOGENICS suggests a dedicated helium bottle, regulator, and line, which are never separated, for adding helium.
NOTE: You are required to supply for this operation the helium charging line terminating
in a 1/4-inch female flare fitting and a two-stage pressure regulator rated at 03000/0-400 psig.
