Here the cooling rate is much faster and the batch is cooled
to a safe temperature after 30 seconds or so.
Because the properties of gray iron are greatly influenced by the thermal and chemical changes occurring from its molten stage to cooled casting, more nucleation sites and more heat of crystalization limit undercooling and promote equilibrium, or slower, solidification.
It represents a balance between temperature and time during which molten iron goes through its various freezing phases from molten to fully cooled iron in the shortest practical period.
Parks, Urologix Chairman and Chief Executive Officer commented, "This recent new product approval, in addition to the FDA labeling expansion approvals, caps a very active six month period in which we have made significant progress toward our goal of providing our Cooled
ThermoTherapy to a wider range of BPH patients.
ThermoTherapy(TM) is the leading minimally invasive BPH treatment in the US.
Currently, Medicare reimburses hospitals for outpatient Cooled
ThermoTherapy procedures at a rate of $1,917 per treatment.
ThermoTherapy products, Targis(TM) and Prostatron(R), were the focus of significant discussion at AUA and the subject of more than 10 presentations at the meeting, including papers featuring potential new applications for the technology.
EPCS designed Venture's new cooling system so that in cold weather the molds can be cooled
without using the chillers.
ThermoCath platform represents the next generation of Cooled
ThermoTherapy products stemming from Urologix' continued commitment to provide convenient, comfortable office treatments for patients with enlarged prostate, or BPH.
In the Vulcain 2 nozzle, the upper half is cooled
by liquid hydrogen pumped through the tubes which comprise the wall.
The initial launch of office-based Cooled
ThermoTherapy has generated tremendous momentum for our treatment and enabled us to achieve record sales results," commented Michael M.
Also look for new mold-water regulators and products that provide a stream of cooled
Nasdaq:ULGX) reported that the Health Care Financing Administration (HCFA) has published final rates for office-based reimbursement for cooled
microwave thermotherapy scheduled to become effective beginning January 1, 2001.
I'm really looking forward to when we're cooled
by the Northwind Phoenix system," said Steve Cohn, General Manager of the Crowne Plaza Hotel.
Although the benefits of cold computing have been an accepted fact, the key barriers to mass producing cooled
computers have been the cost and reliability of the cooling technology.
