About Us    About RICOR

Ricor Systems is a world-leader in innovative cooler technology for the infrared, scientific instrumentation and semiconductor industries. Ricor develops, manufactures and markets a wide range of advanced products and solutions, from Cryocoolers Infrared, X-Ray and Gamma Detectors, Scientific Instrumentation & Vacuum Cryo Pumps, to Wafer Storage Purge Systems for the Semiconductor Industry, as well as Semiconductors Manufacturing Equipment Diagnostic tools, Solutions for High Temperature Superconductivity Devices and Advanced Acoustic Noise & Vibration Control. Ricor serves the space, military and defense, homeland security, semiconductors, commercial and scientific equipment industries.
Based on Stirling Cryogenic Cooler types, Ricor's technologies offer tremendous flexibility, servicing cooling power needs ranging from a fraction of a Watt up to 15W, temperatures from 7K to 150K and input power consumption as low as 2.5W (for handheld equipment).

Meeting the Needs of an Evolving World

From the outer limits of space to the infinitesimal spaces of semi-conductors, Ricor has an extensive technological footprint. Its cryocoolers were recently employed in the Mars Curiosity space mission, while its military and defense products have been tested in some of the world's toughest battlegrounds. Governments depend on Ricor's homeland security products for long life operation 24/7. While scientists rely on our efficient cooling to increase the up-time of semiconductors and deliver high performance accuracy in the laboratory, our high value products serve a wide range of commercial applications, providing total reliability.

50 Years of Quality, Innovation and Excellence

Since 1967, Ricor has followed an unwavering commitment to quality, innovation and customer-focused solutions. Today, Ricor is a market leader in cryogenic technology, supplying cutting-edge technology - with products installed worldwide. Always a step ahead, Ricor is geared to be at the frontier of scientific discovery for the next 50 years.

Specialists in Integrated Cooler Technologies

Since its inception, Ricor has taken a strategic decision to focus on coolers. While its competitors produce systems with multiple components, Ricor specializes in the development, design, manufacture, testing and after-sales service of cooling systems. This has given Ricor a unique capability of being able to deliver highly customized and fully-integrated cooler systems to a broad spectrum of products in very different industries. For example, with the development of the infra-red and electro-optic market in the 1980s, Ricor quickly became an authority in thermal imaging and night vision platforms. Today, our IR solutions are used to support a wide range of critical combat applications where vision enhancement can make all the difference.
