Techflow Tube Series Cryogenic Vacuum Jacketed Valves

Techflow 500 Series Vacuum Jacketed Valves

Low Cryogen Losses With Minimal Space Claim

  • Vacuum-jacketed, to prevent the ice and condensation seen with non-vacuum jacketed cryogenic valves.
  • Compact design reduces the space claim, ideal for transfer hoses and smaller diameter pipe/tubing.
  • Easy grip handle provides low torque opening and closing.
  • Lower cost than pipe sized valves.
  • Wear parts are easily removed and replaced reducing down-time.
  • Made by Technifab to the same high quality standards as our vacuum jacketed pipe.

We also offer Techflow Pipe Series Vacuum Jacketed Valves in larger diameters.

Vacuum jacketed cryogenic valves are used with a variety of different cryogenic liquids for control and transfer in:

  • Transfer Hose Shut-offs.
  • Point-of-Use Valves.
  • Laboratory Uses.
  • Liquid Helium Stingers.
  • Cold Box Connections.

Our valves are used with liquid nitrogen, liquid argon, and liquid helium systems.
