With the help of Predyne, now Gems Sensors, we have designed what is probably the very best solenoid valve series ever developed for use in cryogenic applications. Bold statement? Yep, and quite true!
Liquid nitrogen, (LN2) is a non-lubricating, harsh service for any valve, little less a high cycle-rate solenoid-operated valve. Their most common use is in environmental chambers where the temperatures need to be held to exact tolerances. That translates into a valve being opened and closed millions of times in only a few months.
- Typical LN2 applications include, but are not limited to:
- Inlet valve to cold chambers
- Shutoff valves
- Hi-volume LN2 transfer
- LN2 dewar bleed off valve
Most other manufacturer's valves die after only a few hundred thousand cycles but ours have been tested to last over 6 million! Prepare to be amazed...
