Compared to the operation and performance of pure coolant Joule-Thomson cryocoolers, the mixed coolant versions introduce new and previously unattainable possibilities. In particular, mixed coolants enhance the performance of JT coolers by enabling equivalent (even improved) performance at reduced operating pressures, increasing the specific cooling capacity, and achieving lower temperatures.
