Cryogenic Neck Tubes
Cryogenic Materials at Spaulding Composites
Spaulding Composites has over 30 years of expertise in manufacturing and designing special composite materials for cryogenic applications, including customized cryotubes. Spaulding continues to be instrumental in the development of cryogenic grades of glass epoxy materials.
Our vertically integrated manufacturing process has placed Spaulding Composites at the forefront of the cryogenic market. The cryogenic materials we manufacture are widely favored in liquid nitrogen and liquid helium applications.
Cryogenic storage is a fascinating process that is mission-critical for animal husbandry and scientific and medical research applications. When a lab has important biological samples for its work and needs to preserve them, it utilizes cryogenic Dewars. These Dewars are aluminum cans with a secondary container inside. This secondary container sits inside a vacuum chamber with a glass epoxy neck tube connecting this container to the outside world.
The internal container is kept at cryogenic temperatures to preserve the sample inside. The composite neck tube is critical to keeping the internal container suspended in the insulated vacuum and not conducting ambient heat from the outside world which will ruin the sample. The tube must also prevent air from seeping into the vacuum chamber.
A faulty cryogenic neck tube would be catastrophic to the samples inside. When your customer relies on you to keep their biological samples safe, you want to rely on Spaulding Composites products. We have experience in winding glass epoxies to ensure your storage tanks are safe and reliable. We provide in-house helium leak testing to prove to you that our neck tubes are fully functioning to your specifications before they even leave our facility.
