MRI Quench Pipes


At European EMC Products we are well versed with the cryogenic engineering practices required to cope with the physical impact on the MRI Quench Pipe system that a helium discharge produces.

Helium Quench Pipes form a crucial part of any super conducting MRI scanner installation. In an emergency, the potentially lethal gaseous liquid helium used in the scanner must be vented directly and safely into the atmosphere, therefore it is paramount the Quench Pipe system withstands the drastic shift in temperature from ambient to that of liquid helium (-269°C / 4° Kelvin) within seconds.

All our installations adhere to:

  • Stringent installation standards
  • Following strict procedures whilst undertaking material's selection

When our MRI Quench Pipe design and installation service is undertaken parallel with the MRI rooms detailed design and installation, practical matters such as the interface connections between the Quench Pipe and the room are further simplified.

Our turnkey offerings make us a one stop shop for all of your MRI room shielding requirements.
