Valves that can handle the cold

Cryogenic gases are gases that exist in a liquefied state at extremely low temperatures. Due to their ability to be liquefied at high pressures and low temperatures, these gases are widely used in various industries for cryogenic applications. Their capacity to cool, freeze, expand, contract, and condense materials makes them valuable in various industrial applications. These abilities allow for a variety of processes and applications across different industries. Our valves from HEROSE are specially designed to meet the demands of these applications and ensure optimal performance and reliability. With our in-stock availability and competitive pricing, we deliver solutions that match your needs, whenever you need them.

short facts cryogenic gases

Short facts about cryogenic gases

  • Cryogenic gases are liquefied and stored at temperatures below -150°C (-238°F).
  • Argon, helium, hydrogen, nitrogen, and oxygen are the most common cryogenic industrial gases.
  • Cryogenic liquefaction can reduce the volume of industrial gases by up to 600 times, making it a cost-effective solution for storage and transportation.
  • Specialized equipment and materials are required to handle cryogenic gases safely due to their extreme cold temperatures and potential hazards.
  • Cryogenic gases exhibit unique properties such as high density, low viscosity, and exceptional thermal conductivity at cryogenic temperatures.
challenges cryogenic gases

Valves for cryogenic applications

One of the biggest challenges for valves used in cryogenic applications is the wide temperature and pressure variations. Because of the temperature differential between ambient and cryogenic temperatures as well as fluctuations in pressure levels, extra attention must be given to the valve sealing system. These conditions may result in leaks, which calls for extra attention to valve seats, stem seals, and body sealing.

We offer valve solutions for production, transport, storage and use of cryogenic gases



Various processes can generate cryogenic gases. For instance, air separation plants can produce oxygen, nitrogen, argon, and noble gases; electrolysis can produce hydrogen; and natural gas can be used to extract helium.



Cryogenically liquefied industrial gases can be stored in stationary containers for extended periods without significant evaporation.

To transport cryogenic gases from the production site to the user, they can either be conveyed through pipelines or transported in cryogenically liquefied form by truck, using specific vacuum-insulated containers or tanks.
