Cooler Maintenance
• The microcooler is designed to provide maintenance-free
operation for many thousand of hours. It contains
pressurized helium gas.
• After several thousand hours of operation the gas pressure
decreases, and cooler service is required to restore cooler
performance. The cooler also contains micro ball bearings,
which may exhibit wear by becoming louder.

Cooler Maintenance
• Sign to watch out
– This microcooler is equipped with a closed-loop speed regulator, which
adjusts the cooler motor speed to regulate the detector temperature.
– Typically, the cooler runs at maximum speed for 7 to 10 minutes, and
then slows to about 40% of maximum speed. As the (helium) gas
pressure degrades, the motor continues at maximum speed for longer
and longer periods to attain operating temperature.
– Eventually, as the helium pressure decreases, the motor will lose the
ability to achieve and/or maintain operating temperature. When this
occurs, the cameras must be returned to FLIR Service Department for
service.

– Not to turn off the camera until the cool down is done.

Cooler Maintenance
• A good house rule
– Not to keep any battery inside the GF camera when it is not in use.
– In order to avoid someone mistakenly turns on the camera as that
person will tend to turn it off without waiting for the cool down
period.
