European-based cryogenic engineering specialty Cryospain has released a new white paper into the topic, titled The Definitive Guide to Cryogenic Engineering.
The report’s foreword acknowledges “Cryogenic engineering has become a key component in the deployment of projects across very different industrial sectors – from the food industry, all the way to metallurgy.”
It is essential, therefore, to know its basic characteristics and how it works in order to understand the importance of its processes, it adds.
In this context, the white paper goes onto provide a user’s journey from the basics of cryogenics and liquefaction through to the different technologies behind cryogenic facilities and installations.
Chapter 1 begins with An Introduction to the Gas Liquefaction Process and commonly-used methods, while Chapter 2 picks up this baton with a discussion around the Application of Cryogenic Technology in Industrial Gases, including what cryogenic distillation actually involves.
In Chapter 3, the paper explains Industries That Use Cryogenic Technology; Chapter 4 moves the learning onto the Different Types of Cryogenic Facilities and Installations; and the paper concludes with a short Chapter 5 presenting Cryospain: Experts in Cryogenic Engineering.
Throughout the paper, which is now available to all via gasworld’s White Papers platform, there are key considerations for users explained. More specifically, readers can expect to learn about:
- The Linde-Hampson System
- The Brayton Cycle
- The Claude Cycle
- Operating temperatures and pressures in cryogenic engineering
- Distillation columns and air separation plant processes
- Applications of cryogenic distillation
- Production of pure gases
- Storage, vacuum insulated piping, and plants and stations.
It also discusses the possibilities in custom-made equipment.
