Cryogenic valves are available in numerous models of various sizes, weights, operating pressures, power specifications, and orifice sizes. Applications include inlet valves to LN(2) dewars, low-temperature chambers, automatic shutoff of cryogenic lines, laser cooling, NMR magnet cooling, and thermal analysis equipment. Configurations are low in mass to minimize thermal loss, and both free-standing and manifold-mounted versions are available.
