Liquid Level Sensors for Cryogenic Applications

Liquid Nitrogen Being Monitored on a U.S. Navy ShipTo the average person, the word “cryogenics” likely evokes images with more of a basis in science fiction than fact: eccentric billionaires flash-frozen to preserve life indefinitely; a starship crew sleeping through the longest part of their journey; the neurotic owner of a ‘70s health-food store waking up in a 22nd Century police state.

In reality though, cryogenic technologies are far more common and mundane than these motifs suggest. Strictly speaking, “cryogenic” is applied to any technology or process involving temperatures below 150°C. Cryogenic technologies and processes are common in steel processing, natural gas transfer, power transmission, food preservation, and many other industries. (more…)
