Cryogenic Cabling: Cryogenic Superinsulation

cryogenic superinsulation

Cryogenic cable superinsulation is built from a combination of reflective thin films and low thermally conductive fabric space material, which lessens the heat flux.

Cryogenic Cable Insulation Uses:

Our cryogenic cable insulation is perfect for any cryogenic system or project. It can be utilized for cryogenic cabling closeouts, cryogenic pipe insulation, and much more. Visit our superinsulation page to learn more:

Frequently Asked Questions

How are cryogens stored and maintained?
Cryogens are stored in specifically designed double walled tanks to insulate the cryogen and
prevent boiling off. These double walled tanks are like a double walled drinking container
that utilizes a vacuum barrier to slow the rate of heat transfer.

What materials are used to insulate this type of tank?
There are several types of materials used like pearlite, aerogel, 3m glass bubbles along with
superinsulation. Superinsulation is easy to install and affordably priced. Other alternatives
can be lower conducting, but the combination of radiation, conduction, and presence of a
vacuum is where superinsulation is far better than any alternative.

What is cryogenic superinsulation?
Cryogenic superinsulation is a specialized type of insulation material designed to
maintain extremely low temperatures, typically below -100°C. It is used to minimize heat
transfer and keep cryogenic fluids, such as liquid nitrogen, liquid hydrogen, and liquid
helium, at their required temperatures.
Some of the benefits of Cryogenic Superinsulation include:
• Improved temperature regulation and control
• Enhanced safety in cryogenic environments
• Reduced energy consumption and costs
• Increased efficiency and performance of cryogenic systems

How does cryogenic superinsulation work?
Cryogenic superinsulation works by minimizing conduction and radiation heat transfer in
a vacuum environment. It typically consists of multiple layers of insulation materials, such
as low conducting spacers and reflective thin films or foils, which are arranged in a way that
minimizes heat transfer. This design helps keep the cryogenic fluid at the required
temperature. This type of insulation helps store cryogens for a variety of industries that
without using energy to remove heat from the system.
