I received a cryo compressor alert and now what?


Alert type

Cryo compressor function


Impact
The cryo Compressor is a component in the MRI system that maintains the internal temperature of the magnet via another component called a Cold head. These two components together are called the Cyro System.

Cryo compressor alerts are sent when the magnet cooling system is not operating properly and optimal magnet cooling conditions cannot be kept. This may be due to low cooling water levels, high pressure or due to a disconnect in power supply.
Alert thresholds are reached when the temperature of the water supplied to the cryo compressor is outside a Philips threshold value. Or when the temperature of the water returning from the cryo compressor is outside a Philips threshold value.

Criticality of alert: High
Required response time: within 24 hours
