Why Are Medical Chillers Vital to Patient Care?

Everyday, medical chillers play an important role in many functions at medical facilities and hospitals. Chillers play the important role of helping to regulate the temperature of important (and expensive) medical equipment. Millions of dollars are spent each year on purchasing and maintaining medical chillers. Medical chillers are used for things such as radiation therapy in cancer treatments, blood cooling systems, lab applications, CT scanners, and MRI machines.

When a CT scanner or MRI machine is out of order, it can be detrimental to patients and staff. Patients may not get the care they need in a timely manner if the equipment isn't functioning properly, which may cause patients to look elsewhere for care.

Medical chillers are so important in the use of CT scanners because the x-ray tube in the scanner heats up very fast (in just a few minutes), and it must be cooled down within 20-30 minutes.

A good cooling system helps to create long-term use in critical medical situations. The magnet inside an MRI scanner must also be as cool as possible.

Without the cooling power of a medical chiller, doctors and nurses would not be able to treat their patients and give them the best care possible.

Each of our chillers come equipped with fluid cooling and backup systems that are specifically designed to meet the 24/7/365 demands for medical cooling. When you purchase a Legacy chiller each one is tested while undergoing a rigorous quality control process before sent out for shipment. Our system provides all of the latest features the medical chiller market demands.
