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
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.
