Itelco Develops Advanced Transmitter Cooling Technology

New, cutting-edge technology improves transmitter efficiency and cooling that provides maximal thermal stability independent of room temperature.

Itelco is a part of the Elenos Group, and it recently announced a revolutionary new patented cooling technology it is now commercializing.

Dubbed Geysertek, the groundbreaking technology was developed for implementation in radio and TV transmitters, to provide users with high levels of energy efficiency, cooling performance, thermal stability and power density.

The new technology is based on a hybrid air/liquid cooling method. It is the only cooling technology able to provide maximal thermal stability for electrical devices independent of room temperature. Operators benefit from unparalleled functionality thanks to reduced maintenance, low device temperature and less concern about room temperature.

Geyserty is the proof-concept derived from the advanced Geysertek technology. The easy-to use and maintain technology ensures that pallet temperatures, direct and reflected power, liquid pressure, room temperature, humidity, dust and corrosion are kept in check.

Geysertek at CERN

Geysertek technology caught the attention of researchers at the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva. Itelco will deliver its new generation of Geyserty amplifiers to CERN before the end of 2018 for implementation in the organization’s Large Hadron Collider (LHC) experiments. Itelco plans to introduce the Geysertek technology for radio and TV transmitters in the second half of 2018.

“With Geysertek, radio and television professionals will gain in time, energy and efficiency,” said Gianluca Busi, Marketing Manager at Elenos Group. “We have spent four years developing this technology with in mind the single goal of facilitating the day-to-day operations of every broadcaster.”
