Company says 5000 Series’ thermally efficient designs ideal for ultra-cold industrial gas applications

CPC-Cryolab, a CIRCOR International brand, says its 5000 Series Cryogenic Valves are ideal for use in ultra-cold cryogenic storage tanks, transportation trailers, and vacuum jacketed and non-jacketed piping systems.

The valves, which the company says continue its “innovative and long-standing leadership in availability and performance,” feature bellow sealed and non-bellows sealed designs, redundant packaging seals, and all-stainless steel construction, creating the “most reliable LHe valves used on ISO helium containers worldwide.”

CPC-Cryolab’s 5000 Series valves offer high performance, low heat leak and worry-free efficiency, with the least maintenance of any LHe valve used today, the company maintained. The valves feature top-entry PCTFE soft-seated plug assemblies, zero leakage across the seat, self-centering plug assemblies, Chevron-style stem packing, and operate under extreme low temperatures ranging from -452 degrees Fahrenheit to +300 degrees Fahrenheit.

The company’s history dates to the 1960s, when it developed the a line of cryogenic valves to support America’s quest to send a man to the moon. CPC-Cryolab’s highly engineered cryogenic valves have been used successfully in both liquid hydrogen and liquid helium applications throughout the US Space program. 

The 5000 Series has its roots in these specially engineered cryogenic labs built for the space program and has evolved into a standard line of vacuum-insulated, auto- and manually-operated valves, available in ½-inch thru 3-inch standard pipe sizes, that are routinely requested and specified by industrial gas industry leaders.
