A new facility increases the cryogenic pump production capacity for Las Vegas-based Nikkiso Cryo Inc. The company, a member of Nikkiso Clean Energy and Industrial Gases Group, a part of Nikkiso Co. Ltd. in Japan, says the larger facility was needed due to growing demand for the cryogenic pump products and services they provide to the global liquefied natural gas market.
Linde and Bluefors teamed up to create cooling solutions for large-scale quantum computers. Linde is contributing its experience in large cryogenic installations while Bluefors adds its ultra low temperature interface needed for quantum computing.
A liquid nitrogen leak from a cryogenic freezing system at Foundation Food Group’s Gainesville Plant 4 killed six people, required 12 to be hospitalized, and led to the evacuation of 130 others in Gainesville, Ga. The plant is owned by Foundation Food Group, recently formed by the merger of Prime-Pack Foods and Victory Processing. The U.S. Chemical Safety Board is on site and investigating.
Industrial process cooling systems can operate at very cold and even cryogenic temperatures. Creating liquefied natural gas (LNG), for example, requires refrigeration systems to operate at temperatures of -265°F (-165°C) or less.
Some farms grow food,” says the soothing yet authoritative voiceover in the commercial. “This one grows fuel.” So begins a recent television commercial from ExxonMobil that brings again to the consumer consciousness the idea of growing algae for biofuel production.
Freezing preserves raw or prepared foods to allow them to be stored for an extended period. Placing food in a frozen state slows decomposition by converting residual moisture to ice, inhibiting the growth of most bacterial species, and locking in important sensory attributes like taste, color and essential nutrients.
