Cryogenic Liquid Tanks

Cryogenic Liquid Tanks

A Cryo tank is a vertical or horizontal double-layer vacuum-insulated gas storage tank for storing liquid oxygen, nitrogen, argon, carbon dioxide and other media.
The primary function is to fill and store liquid at low temperatures.
Liquefied gases, such as liquid nitrogen and liquid helium, are widely utilized for cryogenic applications.
Liquid nitrogen is the go-to choice in cryogenics and is legally available worldwide.
Cryostorage tanks include liquid oxygen tank, liquid nitrogen tank, liquid argon tank, Liquid Nitrous Oxide Tank (LNO), Liquid carbon dioxide Tank and LNG Tank.

What is a Cryogenic Liquid Tank?

Cryogenic liquid tanks are used for the storage of cryogenic liquids.
Cryogenic liquids are typically liquefied gases at -150 °C or lower. Common gases include oxygen, argon, nitrogen, hydrogen, and helium.

The tanks are double-walled, with an inner vessel that holds the liquefied gas made of stainless steel and an outer vessel that acts as an insulating layer made of carbon steel.
The space between the inner and outer vessel is filled with a vacuum or a highly efficient insulating material, such as perlite or foam, to minimize heat transfer and prevent the escape of stored gases.

Applications of Cryo Tanks

Cryostorage tanks have widespread applications in various industries due to their ability to store large quantities of liquefied gases efficiently. Some notable applications include:

Industrial Gases:
Cryogenic storage tanks store and supply industrial gases like oxygen, nitrogen, and argon, which are essential in manufacturing processes, metal fabrication, and pharmaceutical production.

Energy and Power:
Liquefied natural gas is stored in LNG tanks to facilitate transportation and use as a cleaner energy source. These tanks enable LNG’s safe storage and transportation, ensuring its availability in regions where pipelines are not economically viable.

Aerospace and Defense:
Cryogenic storage tanks play a crucial role in the aerospace industry, where they are utilized to store propellants for rockets and spacecraft. The extremely low temperatures allow for higher storage densities, enabling more extended missions and significant payloads.

Medical Applications:
Cryogenic storage tanks are used in medical facilities to store and transport cryopreserved biological materials, including stem cells, tissues, and organs, for research and transplantation purposes. These tanks provide a reliable environment for maintaining the integrity and viability of these critical materials.
