Scientific Research

Cryogenic gases play an essential role in scientific research. Mainly helium, the coldest gas in cryogenics, is regularly used as a coolant in the research world.


Precious gases

Various scientific research institutes are carrying out experiments in which the limits of force and speed are being challenged. Examples include experiments involving collisions of protons or particle accelerators that bring charged particles to enormous energy levels. These experiments aim to gain insight into how matter is formed: what particles does matter consist of and which forces keep the particles together?

Liquid helium, in addition to liquid nitrogen, hydrogen, and argon, are widely used for these large-scale experiments. Helium is an enormously powerful coolant used in large quantities to cool and make the aforementioned mile-long particle accelerators superconducting.

Helium is difficult to extract, exhaustible, and very expensive. It is therefore essential to handle and transport this liquid gas with special care. When it is accidentally released, it will immediately leave the atmosphere.

Demaco supplies efficient cryogenic infrastructures for the safe transportation and use of helium. Our transfer lines for liquid helium are single or multiple constructions, whereby the multiple version consists of several process lines and one joint vacuum jacket. Due to the preciousness of the gas, liquid helium systems are always implemented as closed systems.
