This facility produces and provides Memorial researchers with access to liquid nitrogen and helium for a wide variety of research instrumentation. It is critical there be a constant supply available for regular “fills” of devices operating at low temperature.
Liquid nitrogen applications at Memorial University:
As the plant was “extendible” the university later just needed to add a second SPC-1 cryogenerator in order to doubel their capacity from 12 to 24 ltr/hr.
