*** Very Important ***
|Most of you are familiar with the Electronic Liquid coolant in your lasers. For those of you who are not familiar with it,
this is the short version description.
Laser system manufacturers like Sharplan, Lumenis, Deka, SmartXide Dot etc. recommend 3M™ Fluorinert™ Electronic Liquid coolant, a specialty fluid from 3M™, as coolant for their laser tubes. It is a colorless, odorless liquid (just like water) and if you get some of it on your fingers, it is harmless (just wash your hands with water).
When you remove for service and re-install a medical laser tube, some of the coolant fluid gets spilled and is lost. Most of you need 'a little' to fill the laser tube or 'top off' the reservoir, sometimes less than 'a cup full'.
Since the manufacturer supplies Fluorinert™ liquids in 5 Kg ( and larger) containers, you need to figure out "how much coolant do I need ?"
A Deka 30 Watt tube, just the glass tube by itself, takes 100 cc
Also include the pump, the tubing, the ballast and then the reservoir. Only you can determine how much you need, depending on how empty your system is.
Either of FC-40 or FC-770 are about 2 times heavier than water. Here are some rough calculations for figuring how much FC-40 / FC-770 liquid you need to get to fill your laser tube / system:
A Cup is 8 Oz = 237 cc. A can of Coke is 12 Oz (355 cc).
1000 cc of water = 1 kg = 2.2 lbs.
1000 cc Electronic Liquid coolant =33.8 US fluid Oz ~ 2 kg = 4.4 lbs
