Technifab Keeps Cold Liquids Colder
Technifab specializes in the storage, transfer, and control of cryogenic fluids. Technifab designs, builds and installs cryogenic liquid systems along with providing the assistance customers need to make a cryogenic delivery system work. Cryogenic liquids used in Technifab equipment include liquid nitrogen, helium, hydrogen, oxygen, CO2, LNG and others. Technifab’s products have been used throughout the semiconductor manufacturing and testing industry. Cryogenic liquids can remove heat from the manufacturing processes and also may be used to purge unwanted gases or create inert environments in critical process areas. Another common use is with environmental chambers, which often use liquid nitrogen to achieve and maintain desired temperatures. Recirculating chillers can use Technifab lines to circulate their cold fluids.
Durable, efficient, and maintenance free, Techflex transfer hoses deliver liquid quicker. The outer surface remains at room temperature and is safe to touch with bare hands.
Lower cryogenic liquid losses, more consistent liquid flow, and a significant lifetime savings occur with Techniguard vacuum insulated pipe. Technifab’s bayonet connections between pipe sections simplifies installation and allows easier assembly – even reconfiguration. Vacuum jacketing significantly lowers heat transfer giving a significant reduction, often elimination, of the dripping and sweating, along with improved durability versus other forms of cryogenic insulation.
Technifab makes vacuum insulated pipe and tube size valves from 1/2” to 2” IPS with and without actuators. Designed for solid closure at cryogenic temperatures, vacuum insulation reduces heat ingress and can reduce valve cavitation. They also offer standard unjacketed cryogenic valves.
Technifab makes a variety of standard and custom equipment for ultra cold helium. From manifolds to specialty hoses and helium stingers, their helium equipment outperforms the competition in independent testing.
Technifab manufactures vacuum insulated dewars for many varied applications. Technifab dewars are used in labs
for liquid nitrogen. Other custom OEM applications for low noise electromagnet sensors and delivering medical vaccines
include remote African villages.
Phase separators provide saturated, lower temperature liquid nitrogen with lower gas content and more consistent temperatures. Technifab offers four different models to meet customer application needs.
Technifab has grown from its inception in 1992 to an operation with global distribution. Since moving to the existing Indiana location in 1995, the building has been expanded four times to meet customer needs. The California regional office was added in 2010 and a third facility in Houston, Texas was added in 2013. A separate division and new facility, Technifab CNC Manufacturing, was opened in 2014 in response to the demand for precision machining that other firms found challenging to meet.
