FIXING A VACUUM INSULATED INSTALLATION IN RECORD TIME
Cryospain, an international company specialized in design, production and repair of equipment for the cryogenic industry, has recently carried out successfully an emergency intervention on a critical cryogenic installation.
We have managed to stop and fix the issue in record time. In spite of the logistical difficulties that we are suffering due to the sanitary situation that we are facing at the moment and that the facility is located near the city of Paris (France), about 1,300 kilometers from our production center.
During last month of august, one of our customers whose activity is the filling of liquid helium vessels, contacted our commercial department for a leak in one of its vacuum insulated filling ramps. This client requested a quick and safe action to continue with its cryogenic filling operations. Given the magnitude of the problem, work at the plant came to a complete halt, preventing to deliver liquid helium to end users. This issue caused very important losses to our client and that is why our action required the highest possible speed.
Cryospain’s operational capacity was able to make happen that, in just 5 days, including our operator’s journey time, the plant was back in operation and began to produce again normally. The leak was detected 2 hours after arrival of our vacuum technician, carrying out as a first step an helium leak test. Once the leak was situated, we proceeded to fix the leak with a welding seem. this allowed to repair the damage in only 30 minutes, after which a new helium leak test was performed to check the results. To finish the reparation and startup again the plant, 4 days of vacuum were carried out. This will allow a good insulation and enhance the durability of the repair.
After the execution of this repair in record time, Cryospain is strengthened as a reference company for repair and maintenance of cryogenic systems. Having a highly qualified human capital and machinery of the latest technology, allows us to be ready to perform urgent repairs, anywhere in the world using our mobile cryogenic operations equipment
