A new switchover ideal for critical applications such as cryopreservation and environmental chambers that automatically delivers a continuous supply of liquid nitrogen, with little to no variation in cryogen temperature or state, has been introduced by CONCOA.
The new fully automatic CryoWizÔ utilizes a proprietary algorithm, precise pressure and temperature sensors, and dynamic hot-gas bypass to maintain a specified temperature with maximum consumption efficiency.
It offers both ‘keep-full’ and ‘on-demand’ operation modes that may be customized to the specific cryogenic application. Lessening flash loss that causes reduced oxygen concentration in freezer areas, the CryoWiz eliminates temperature spikes and low liquid level alarms in freezers, which combined with the ability to determine when the primary supply is truly empty, provides for cost efficiency.
The unit may be integrated with an external oxygen monitor and features pipe-away relief valves, while it also has local audible and visual alarm indicators that can be integrated with remote or building alarm systems.
Making the most of costly laboratory space, the CryoWiz is contained in a compact enclosure with a thermally insulated high-flow switching mechanism that can supply up to eight freezers. In addition, the CryoWiz has a 24,000-event log with built-in battery backup and can be ordered with a web server to remotely monitor cryogenic supply and send email notifications of system status.
Electronic Fluorocarbons (EFC), headquartered in Massachusetts, utilizes the latest technology for the purification and microanalysis of its legacy fluorinated specialty gases and rare gases for the medical and electronics semiconductor manufacturing industries.
As we head in to 2018, we look back on a very interesting changing market for krypton (Kr), xenon (Xe) and neon (Ne) in 2017. Ne supply this year continued to increase as new plants came on-stream while the demand was growing slowly after the big decline of 2016.
Electronics manufacturing is a highly complex sequence of adding and subtracting material, with the resulting sum yielding circuits sometimes less than one hundred atoms wide. For over 50 years, Moore’s Law has driven an industry to make smaller devices on larger scales.
Sherwood Valve, LLC has launched the company’s new, comprehensive 80+ page compressed gas catalog including industrial gas valves, medical valves, propane cylinder valves, alternative energy valves, specialty valves and pressure relief devices.
Month on month the gasworld website continues to be the primary portal for information, on a global scale, about our industry - be it through the provision of news and features, or information in the expansive company directory section. Launched in 2004, it is the only independent online news provider and information portal for the global industrial gas community and the larger end-user markets. The website also now incorporates news for gasworld US and Specialty Gas Report.
