About Us


Aspen Systems specializes in the design and manufacture of compact, vapor compression refrigeration systems to meet the requirements of many challenging applications in a wide variety of industries.  It all began in the early 1990s when we developed our own miniature, variable speed, rotary compressor for a portable application for cooling dismounted soldiers wearing heavy protective gear while operating in high ambient temperature battlefields.  By the late 1990s we were producing small volumes of systems to cool fighter jet pilots.  In the early 2000s we built a modern, state-of-the-art, compressor manufacturing facility to produce our miniature compressors in relatively high volume (>100,000 units annually) and low cost while ensuring high reliability through a repeatable automated process.  Soon after that, we developed and began manufacturing electronic cooling systems for the U.S. military’s Warfighter Information Network.   A couple short years later, we were manufacturing unique compact systems for medical aesthetics, DNA sequencers, and semiconductor manufacturing.  We now supply thousands of cooling systems annually to many industry leading equipment manufacturers for applications in medical, life science, laboratory, pharmaceutical, military, electronics, electric vehicle, lasers, and several other industries.

Our miniature compressor, operating at variable speeds and utilizing a high efficiency, high energy density brushless DC motor gives us a unique advantage when it comes to compact, lightweight, cooling systems.  We can design complete high capacity cooling systems smaller than a shoe box that can easily be incorporated inside the tight confines of your device chassis.  We specialize in air cooling and circulating systems, chilled liquid systems, and direct expansion systems where the refrigerant is circulated directly through a cold plate evaporator in contact with the heat load.  Our advanced compressor and system components, combined with our innovative packaging approaches can result in the most compact, highest performance solution at the minimum cost, for your specific needs.  If your application needs a unique, high efficiency, compact cooling system, Aspen has the technology and decades of experience necessary to develop and manufacture a custom refrigeration system to meet your requirements and provide you with a distinct market advantage.
