Cryogenics is the art and science of achieving extremely low temperatures. It has relevance for the world of industrial insulation, since certain products such as liquid propane gas (LPG) require cryogenic transformation from gas to transportable liquid form. It also is taking a more significant role in the transportation, food, and medical industries as cryogenic liquids must be stored, handled, and transported from one place to another.
Complete knowledge of thermal insulation is a key part of enabling the development of efficient, low-maintenance cryogenic systems. The need for insulation is never a direct one. What is important is to save money on the energy bill or to be able to effectively control a system. Therefore thermal insulation provides energy conservation and systems control for low-temperature processes.
