Bespoke solutions for Biological Automatic LN2 installations

Statebourne Cryogenics offer bespoke solutions for liquid nitrogen storage. Our solutions range from simple installations of 20,000 all the way up to a complete installation of a Biobank holding hundreds of thousands of samples. Each installation will be different, but will compose of the following basic systems.

  • External supply tank
  • Pipeline for the LN2 (super insulated pipeline) and LN2 conservation system
  • Internal filling system
  • Automatic refrigerators
  • Extraction Fan system
  • Oxygen alarm with integrated alarm system

The main problems with any pipeline system is consumption of LN2 and the Oxygen alarm always going off when anyone lifts the lid on a LN2 refrigerator. At Statebourne we have a unique solution that is economical on LN2, does not trigger the alarm and keeps samples cold.

The components parts of our LN2 facility solutions are:

  • Statebourne Cryogenics manufacture Cryogenic supply tanks that are specific for liquid nitrogen, which will help the entire system. The tanks can be built to suite a specific gas company and all are made from super vacuum technology so will be small in size and compact.
  • Tank range from 240 to 10,000 litres
  • Low pressure tanks with low pressure relief valves – this saves LN2
  • Regulators so pressure can be “tuned” for difficult refrigerators
  • Bottom outflow of LN2 for “clean” LN2
  • Different designs for different gas companies
  • Optional slam shut safety valves for pipeline closure (must be linked to O2 alarm)
  • Small foot print so little ground work required
  • Option to link level display to lab alarm system
  • Statebourne manufacture both upright and horizontal tanks
  • Owning your own tank is always cheaper than renting in long term
  • Bespoke design and installation service
  • Options for flexible insulated lines as well (cheaper to install)
  • System control for pipeline control consumption
  • Link to slam shut valves and Oxygen alarm
  • Hot gas management from pipeline with pipeline de-gas systems
  • LN2 dispensing with foot switch or hand switch control
  • Slave tank installation with auto-fill system for multiple dispensing (saves Ln2)
  • Automatic refrigerators with top up of LN2
  • Hot gas by pass system to save 50% of LN2
  • Integrated filling of vessels as a whole or in groups to save 20-30% LN2 usage
  • Linked family fills to not overload fan system or set off Oxygen alarms
  • Incorporating older vessels into filling system
  • Linking automatic refrigerators to alarm and temperature logging systems
  • Refrigerators with overflow protection to eliminate any LN2-sample contact
  • Fill safeguards to prevent overfilling and tank dumping
  • Installation of fans system with ducting and scavangers at low level
  • Linking fan system to Oxygen alarm, so fans are activated before alarm is activated
  • Only using fans when required to save on power, fan life and environment
  • Multiple sensors positioned in sensible places
  • Linking Oxygen alarm to fan systems
  • Linking Oxygen alarms to central read outs
  • External and internal alarms
  • Generation of mini manuals specific for that installation
  • Working scheme of examination for all parts of system
  • On site training
  • Service back up as well
