In light of AMDs recent overclocking achievement of


with an as yet unreleased AMD Bulldozer FX 8150 processor, with liquid Nitrogen and liquid Helium coolants no less, this little advertisement in the ECM caught my attention;

It's an advert for Insulon Thermal Barrier - a proprietary technology for manufacturing vacuum insulated tubing and assemblies in small and miniature sizes. It's doubtful whether computer overclockers could translate what's bound to be a very expensive technology over to insulating LN2 or LH cold blocks, but the potential is certainly alluring. Here's the full PR on Concept Group's Insulon Shaped Vacuum Thermal Barrier Technology:

"Concept Group, Inc. has developed patented and proprietary Insulon technology for manufacturing vacuum insulated tubing and assemblies in small and miniature sizes. This innovative Insulon technology has made it possible to create such new applications as cryoablation surgery and cryogenic cooling of microelectronics and sensors.

Vacuum insulation is the best insulating material known and dramatically reduces heat flow, measured as thermal conductivity (k). Concept's proprietary Insulon technology has overcome the main barriers to vacuum insulation at such small scales: cost, manufacturability, and long-term loss of vacuum. The result - superior thermal insulation in applications previously not possible.

Concept's proprietary vacuum insulated probes are the basis for an entire new category of cryoablation surgery. Our Insulon-based probes allow doctors to use hypodermic-needle-sized probes to cryogenically freeze tumors deep within the body without the need for invasive surgery. This technique is now used for 10% of all prostate surgeries and continues to grow in popularity.

Since vacuum insulation has never been available in the sizes and shapes offered by the Insulon Shaped-Vacuum Thermal Barrier, this technology will continue creating new opportunities in nearly all industries where cooling or heating challenges need to be overcome in smaller packages. Insulon barrier applications currently being developed include cryogenic Gas Chromatographs, cryogenic cooling of electronic sensors (such as Infra Red), super conducting applications, and numerous others."
