UK-based Roadgas has become a member of the British Cryogenics Council.

The Roadgas team has more than 30 years’ experience of working with research and academic institutions providing liquid nitrogen purging and inerting services as well as providing solutions for the food packaging and laser cutting industries.

The company offers unique turnkey project management that delivers on-site engineering, supply of heavy equipment and the retesting and redeployment of storage banks.

The team can design, build and install high-pressure storage as well as offer a 10-year restest service & maintenance support.

Shaune Walsh, Product Manager, said, “We are currently recertifying the helium storage banks at Oxford University with minimal impact to their current demands.”

“There are other universities too who are looking for the best solution for their demands by either using existing equipment or expanding their site capacity.”

Walsh pointed out that increasing levels of activity in establishments along with the installation of larger liquefaction units is now requiring larger volumes of gaseous helium in order to efficiently feed the liquefiers.

“This requires expansion or upgrade of the high-pressure buffer storage. Roadgas is able to offer a fully flexible and bespoke range of high-pressure storage banks up to 300 bar for this purpose,” he said.

“Using our engineering team, we install, maintain and retest all storage as a one stop service.”

Roadgas also offers cryogenic pump servicing, some of which are held in stock. Stock pumps are interchanged so that the clients’ pump can be repaired & returned to site with minimal impact and disruption.
