KrioSystem offers the supply and installation of cryogenic equipment supplying the process with liquefied nitrogen along with the required fittings (control valves, dump and safety valves, phase separators, control). The equipment, through the use of vacuum insulation, ensures that liquid nitrogen losses are minimized.
Materials contract when subjected to extremely low temperatures and expand again when the temperature rises. This property has found its application with the use of liquid nitrogen during the assembly of car engines. Liquid nitrogen is used to cool the parts then the engine parts can fit perfectly and be tightly seated when they return to ambient temperature.
For the automotive industry, KrioSystem provides liquid nitrogen supply systems, cryogenic tanks, automation, and measurement systems.
Cryogenic methods of food freezing are used wherever in technological processes there is a need to cool or freeze the product in a very short time, where quick surface freezing (creating a surface protective layer) is beneficial. The possibility of influencing the product with a large stream of cold reduces the freezing time while improving the quality of the frozen product, which is the main advantage of freezing in cryogenic conditions.
For the food industry, we supply vacuum-insulated pipelines that transport liquid nitrogen from the supply tank to the target device. To ensure the set parameters and quality of the supplied medium, we offer phase separators and gas vents.
Nitrogen is also used in beverage bottling plants to stabilize the pressure in thin-walled bottles or cans. As it turns out, nitrogen is the ideal gas for all non-carbonated beverages. Generating a stabilizing pressure in beverages bottled in thin-walled cans or PET bottles is highly beneficial. A small amount of liquid nitrogen is dosed into the filled containers. The container is closed and the evaporated nitrogen causes an assumed increase of stabilizing pressure inside the container without changing the properties of the beverages such as taste.
Kriosystem supplies VIP pipelines to supply the droppers. We carry out diagnostics, service, and regeneration of dispensing equipment.
Applications involving the use of liquefied nitrogen to thermostat biological material (stem cells, genetic material, semen, blood, and others). The biological material is stored in cryostats specially designed for this purpose, which ensure the appropriate temperature – typically -196 degC. An important requirement of cryopreservation is to ensure the inflow of the liquid phase to the cryostat and the removal of the gas phase. The system for storing biological material includes:
- tanks/cryostats for storing biological material,
- liquid nitrogen (VIP) supply pipelines,
- gas-phase discharge systems,
- automation and metering systems.
We tailor these devices to the specific requirements of a given type of cryostats. We offer installation, commissioning, and training in the principles of operation.
Shipboard LNG bunkering stations – are used to supply the ship’s tank with LNG fuel. They ensure the transfer of LNG to the tank and the return of vapors from the tank. They are usually located on the side of the ship.
VIP – these are vacuum-insulated pipelines. LNG is transported through the inner process pipe, and the outer jacket is a multi-layer vacuum insulation cover. Thanks to this solution, LNG can be transported for hundreds of meters while ensuring minimal evaporation losses. More information can be found in the VIP section of Industrial Cryogenic Products. LNG distribution systems – comprehensive systems for the distribution and transfer of LNG or gaseous methane as a fuel for vehicle and ship engines. They include piping, control and shut-off valves, safety valves, heat exchangers, metering, and control systems.
We provide a detailed structural and computational design, execution, testing, and acceptance of the inspection unit and assembly.
Cryogenic technologies are also used in the space industry. VIP vacuum-insulated piping can be used to transfer liquid oxygen and hydrogen for jet engine testing. Cryogenics is also used during terrestrial space observation – the world’s largest telescopes need a source of liquid nitrogen for proper operation.
Hydrogen is the fuel of the future, which can be both in liquefied or gaseous form. Thanks to our experience, we can provide high-end hydrogen systems tailored to customer needs. We offer process design, 3D CAD designs, FEA thermo-mechanical calculations, CFD calculations for hydrogen. We provide complete documentation with optional approval by notified bodies.
We offer the production of complex pressure gas systems and their integration.
