Cryogenic Gases Application
The tanks often provide a bulk gas source for a gas supply and distribution system. The applications include metal processing, medical technology, electronics, water treatment, energy generation and the food industry.
Cryogenic liquids are also used for low temperature cooling applications, such as engineering shrink fitting, food freezing and the storage of bio-samples.
Cryogenic tanks are available for static, mobile or transportable applications.
Static cryogenic tanks are designed for use in a fixed location. Smaller mobile tanks, mounted on wheels, are also common within workshops and laboratories. Static cryogenic tanks are generally classified as pressure vessels, as such new tanks and their associated systems must be manufactured and put into service in accordance with the Pressure Equipment (Safety) Regulations.
Transportable cryogenic tanks that are, or are intended, to be used for the carriage of cryogenic liquids must comply with the Carriage of Dangerous Goods and Use of Transportable Pressure Equipment Regulations.
There are also a range of non-pressurised open neck vessels (Dewar flasks) available for those applications requiring direct access to the liquid.
The tanks are available in a range of sizes, pressures and flow rates.
