“Providing Expert Thermal Management Design and Consulting Services, and the World's Highest-Quality Flexible Thermal Straps/Links to meet Exacting Requirements for the Aerospace, Photonics and Cryogenic Markets.”
Technology Applications, Inc. (TAI), headquartered in Boulder, Colorado, is committed to being your thermal management system design and fabrication leader. Our expert personnel have extensive experience in the development of complex, high-performance, thermal systems to meet the most demanding customer requirements.
TAI specializes in the custom design, fabrication and testing of Flexible Thermal Straps (often referred to as “heat straps” or “Flexible Thermal Links). We provide the world's only, truly flexible and commercially available graphite thermal link- a technology that has been studied and tested time and again, but only perfected by TAI. Our Graphite Fiber Thermal Strap (GFTS) assemblies are the industry standard due to their superior combination of flexibility, low-mass, and thermal conductance. GFTS sales are booming, as technical designers value the extreme light-weight and high-conductivity properties of our GFTS over all others.
TAI provides OFHC Copper Thermal Straps (CuTS), for a wide array of applications and programs. They are ideal for applications with operating temperatures of 1K-120K, are extremely flexible, and the standard in the aerospace and cryogenics industries. If you are working with a university or national laboratory, and would like to learn more about our "University and National Lab CuTS Program," please call us today (our CuTS are now more affordable than ever). Why settle for stiff, heavy, and inefficient in-house manufactured straps, when TAI can design and manufacture a highly-superior product, for the same price? Cut out the hassle and reduce your engineers' design time and thermal headaches; call TAI today!
Whether you need a thermal solution for an application operating at 1K or 300K and beyond, TAI has a thermal strap system for you. Feel free to contact us for our growing list of current and prior customers.
TAI also developed, and holds a patent on the use of microspheres as a cryogenic insulation material in bulk form. Our revolutionary product, CryoSpheres™, are hollow microscopic glass bubbles that are light, strong, free flowing, and noncorrosive. They combine in a single material, the desirable properties which other insulation materials only possess individually. When used as a cryogenic insulating material, CryoSpheres™ exhibit the optimal combination of thermal performance, physical characteristics, cost, weight, durability, and low maintenance.
This exceptional cryogenic insulation material has repeatedly proven to reduce boil-off (of costly cryogens) by as much as 51% over perlite, while at the same time drastically reducing all maintenance costs and wear and tear on cryogenic storage tanks and transfer lines. CryoSpheres™ are the optimal insulation material for cold boxes, Dewars, and cryogenic storage tanks of all configurations; this material is the 21st century's answer to the outdated and issue-plagued perlite insulation of the past.
