White Paper: Instrumentation Cryogenic Valves

Posted on Sep 7, 2017 in News & Events, Product News, White Papers |

Published on: Oct 16, 2017 By: Louis J. Arcuri, Director of Sales & Marketing, Valcor Scientific Instrumentation Cryogenic Valves — Their proper design and application Questions? Contact Us! Name * E-Mail * How can we help you? Cryogenic media enhance our daily lives in so many ways. Our most frequent encounter with the byproduct of cryogenic gas usage is in our food chain. Much of the frozen food we buy is flash-frozen in cryogenic freezers that use liquid CO2 (LCO2) and more commonly, liquid nitrogen (LN2). Vegetables, poultry, fish, and beef are all flash-frozen in immersion cryogenic freezers. Commercially baked goods are cooled much more quickly, and ready for packaging using LN2 vapor. Frozen ice cream novelty treats are flash-frozen in an LN2 bath. Beverages like beer, soda, and sparkling drinks are often carbonated with LCO2 from bulk storage systems. Cryogenics are popular because they’re effective, relatively inexpensive, and don’t affect the color, taste, or flavor of the foods and beverages with which they come in contact. With the advent of microbulk systems, cryogenic cooling is available to more food and beverage processors than ever before, especially small customers who could otherwise not afford the large bulk tanks often seen outside of large-scale producers. Environmental test chambers use solenoid valves to control the flow of LN2, enabling testing at temperatures to -320° F. Environmental chambers are used for testing all manner of components, devices, and systems. They can simulate the cold of deep space; or arctic ambient conditions. Combinations of cryogenic gases are used for a type of surgery known as cryosurgery. LN2 is directly applied to many skin maladies for freezing and removal such as warts, moles, and skin tags. Liquid Argon (LAR) is often used to create a freezing point at the tip of a probe. LAR treatments include freezing of tumors and cancerous tissue. Cryoablation prevents arterial fibrillation in cardiac patients. Cryofreezing minimizes damage to the surrounding healthy tissue. LCO2 is frequently used for cleaning and deburring. CO2 snow cleans surfaces quickly and efficiently, leaving no residue behind. CO2 cleaning is frequently used in optics manufacturing, painted surface preparation, and some semiconductor devices. Dry Ice, or frozen CO2, is used as an abrasive to deburr parts that are too delicate for traditional glass beading or sand blasting techniques. CO2 is also a great solvent; it is often used in a supercritical state to extract the essential oils that are associated with flavors and fragrances. It is also used to decaffeinate coffee and tea, and in sometimes to dry clean fabrics! Finally, we all enjoy the special effects created by LCO2 fogging machines! Whether at a rock concert, or on a Broadway stage, the low-hanging CO2 fog...

Published on: October 21, 2015 By: Valcor Aerospace Valcor Aerospace: A strong heritage providing value to the Aerospace Industry for over 60 years Valcor was founded in 1951 in a small industrial loft in Newark, New Jersey, by Morton Kreitchman. The first valve design was a “floating seal” fuel control valve for the aircraft industry. Since that time, Valcor has evolved into a thriving company specializing in fluid control products for Aircraft, Space, Industrial, Scientific and Nuclear applications. With over 60 years of proven experience in the Aerospace industry, Valcor is always at the top of any buyer’s list for potential suppliers for fluid controls. An important consideration for any Aerospace company purchasing fluid control devices for their programs is product heritage. Valcor developed its heritage by being an engineering company and working with major players in the aerospace industry. The design and development of cutting edge technology in aerospace takes time, expertise, and strong partnerships. Valcor understood this approach early on and implemented it into their business plan. Valcor integrates our proven valve technology into the next generation of valves, which then can be utilized on the latest space platforms. The connection to our strong heritage is a highly valued attribute by Valcor’s customers. A Brief History Valcor products have been used in many major spacecraft and launch vehicle programs over the last 60 years. Valcor hardware can be found on the moon, orbiting around the earth and even in deep space. One of Valcor’s first platforms was the Mercury Program where Valcor supplied a valve in the fuel cell system of the Mercury Capsule. Valcor provided isolation valves for the descent stage engines of the Apollo lunar modules. Cold gas thruster valves were supplied for Skylab. In the 1980s, Valcor further increased its aerospace design capability with the acquisition of the Aerospace Operations Division of Walter Kidde & Company. This acquisition provided Valcor with engineering talent, as well as an extensive line of secondary propulsion and fluid control components. Valcor continued building its heritage throughout the 70s, 80s, and 90s. Platforms included feed, drain, and latching valves for the Space Shuttle program, a fast-acting thruster valve for the ERIS missile interceptor, environmental system control valves for the International Space Station, and liquid lithium valves for the SP-100 Spaceborne Reactor. In the late 90’s Valcor designed and qualified numerous valves for the first and second stages of the Atlas V and Delta IV platforms. These valve designs included pressurization valves, vent & relief valves, and purge valves. Valcor has continued our dominance in the space market by providing a wide variety of valves for other vehicles. The importance of strong heritage and engineering expertise Imagine for a moment...
