With cryogenic engineering (or cryogenic temperature engineering) it is possible to generate extremely low temperatures and utilise them for physical effects such as the liquefaction and separation of gases. As opposed to refrigeration engineering, cryogenic engineering covers the temperature range from roughly -150 °C to -271.5 °C.
From a technical point of view the temperatures which correlate with the boiling points of nitrogen (77.4K/-195.8°C), hydrogen (20.4K/-252.9°C) and helium (4.2K/-268.9°C are relatively easily accessible. Lower temperatures are achieved through decompression and the accompanying changes to the boiling points.
For years RAK Industrial Consulting has focussed on the planning, engineering and construction of cryogenic refrigeration plants, as well as cryogenic plants for the liquefaction of helium and hydrogen. Our expert customer service with its wide range of repair, maintenance and servicing specialties makes us the ideal partner for successful and efficient cryogenic plant operation – with 24-hour standby availability for malfunctions and emergencies.
