MS 30

The MS30 demonstrates the magnetocaloric effect. The device is driven by a hand crank. A magnet is moved over a capsule with magnetocaloric material while water is pumped through the system with a mechanically coupled piston pump. The magnetic field source is a halbach permanent magnet and the magnetocaloric material is Gadolinium. A temperature span of 15K can be achieved within 60 seconds by cranking. In “Active Cooling Mode”, the device can cool down an external metallic body to 10°C in 100s. The temperature change of the device can be displayed on an attached monitor and experienced by touching the external body. Because of the mechanical setup, the device is very robust and can be adapted easily by the user.

MS 90

The MS90 is a materials testbench for testing magnetocaloric materials under real time conditions. The device is equipped with easily interchangeable material holders for testing various types of materials in active magnetic regenerators (AMR). The magnetic field source is a nested halbach setup and achieves 1.15 T. The fluid flow of the heat exchange fluid as well as its phase shift in accordance to the magnetic field can be adjusted mechanically. The temperature change of the AMR is recorded via Type T thermocouples (not provided) which can be inserted into the material cartridges. The data of up to six thermocouples can be recorded with the provided software. Connecting to an external temperature control is possible (not provided).
