A Word About Cryogenics...
Cryogenics — the science of materials at extremely low temperatures — has become more and more important to industry.
One important aspect of this field is the liquification of normally gaseous elements, including the following, which are widely
used throughout industry:
Oxygen - Used extensively in BOF furnaces in the steel industry, for metal cutting, as a rocket fuel and in medicine.
Acetylene - Widely used in welding.
Nitrogen - Used in refrigeration systems, for metal degassing, in aerosol packaging and in cryogenic surgery.
Hydrogen - Used as a rocket propellant and in the production of several metals.
Argon - Widely used in incandescent lamps and fluorescent tubes.
Helium - Used for arc welding, in the manufacture of electron tubes and in cryogenic research.
Carbon Dioxide - Used in refrigeration, to make aerosol tanks and in fire fighting.
Other cryogenic fluids include liquefied natural gas, fluorine, krypton, neon, methane and ethane.
Cash Valve has an extensive line of cryogenic valves and controls. It includes pressure reducing valves, pressure build-up
regulators, back pressure valves, economizer valves, combination valves, low temperature cut-off valves, safety relief valves,
shut-off valves, final line regulators, strainers and high purity valves. Full specifications of construction, dimensions and
available pressure ranges are contained in separate Data Sheets.
