Cryogenic tanks are critical for applications requiring temperature control. They are used to store temperature-sensitive gasses like nitrogen and oxygen, which has become even more crucial recently because of the increased demand related to COVID-19 hospitalizations. The gauges on cryogenic tanks must be absolutely accurate, as deviations from proper temperature can cause a host of problems. Many people are not aware of the vital role that compression springs play in the operation of temperature gauges—but they are, in fact, one of the most important components.
“We had a tank that required a unique gauge to maintain the right temperature, but we were having some trouble with the design. We needed a unique kind of compression spring—and it just didn’t exist. Century Spring worked with our engineers to design and manufacture exactly what we needed. In the end, the gauge worked perfectly.”
