Cryogenic techniques are used regularly in the space industry. In particular, cryogenic infrastructures play an essential role when testing satellites in large simulation chambers and during scientific experiments in the field of space travel.
Comprehensive application of cryogenic technology
Cryogenic technology is used within the space industry in a variety of ways. For example, satellites are subjected to extreme cold in cryogenic testing facilities, with the objective to investigate whether all functions remain active when the satellite is not exposed to sunlight. In addition, cryogenic gases also come into play during rocket launches. Cryogenic rocket engines run on liquid oxygen (at -183°C) and liquid hydrogen (at -253°C).
Demaco builds infrastructures for large-scale projects in the space industry. These projects are typically very complex and require knowledge, expertise, and engineering of the highest level. In the past years, we have worked with major parties in this industry, such as the European Space Agency (ESA) and the German Aerospace Center (DLR).
