Good water quality is essential to any laser cooling system. Deionization cartridges help maintain overall water purity levels and will help minimize lamp ignition problems including electrical arcing. Particle filters eliminate debris buildup throughout the cooling loop and help protect cooling lines and flow tubes as well as critical components like cavities and flashlamps.
Most lasers require a minimum water resistivity of 1.0 Mega Ohms/cm. Some common symptoms of incorrectly maintained cooling systems include misfires, poor shot performance, and purity sensor interlock failure. Deionization cartridges should be replaced every 3-6 months, and should not be exposed to air until ready to be installed into the system. Kentek offers a wide selection of deionization cartridges manufactured for today’s laser industry so call today for a standard or generic cartridge for your application.
