Liquid Helium plant

In this liquid helium plant, the helium gas is compressed to high pressure of ~230psi and allowed to expand in the cold box. With proper heat exchangers and valves, the helium gas finally cools below 4.2K and gets liquefied. This liquid is collected in a separate container (helium dewar) for storage and transfer.
Make and Model
LINDE Cryogenics USA, Model 1410
  • Pure gas with/without pre-cooling : 35/19 lit/hour
  • Impure gas with/without pre-cooling : 25/15 lit/hour

The liquid helium produced can be used for cooling purposes down to 2K for doing various experiments at low temperatures. Liquid helium can also be used for cooling superconducting magnets such as the ones used in NMR machines, MRI machines, etc.
