The scoop on Liquid Nitrogen Dewars in Beaumont

Liquid Nitrogen is a monochrome, unscented, noncorrosive and fire-retardant cryogenic liquid that is associated with the specialty gas Nitrogen. Because liquid nitrogen is noncorrosive, you do not need containers made from very specific, hard materials. Due to this, liquid nitrogen can be stored in various types of containers. Liquid Nitrogen is shipped in varying types of containers, [which depends on|depending on|considering]11] the amount being requested by the purchaser.

Dewars are one of the many different types of vessels utilized for liquid nitrogen. They can range in capacity from 5 to 200 liters. Some of the facets of dewars include:


  • A pressure type liquid level gauge
  • Full tricock valve
  • Different relief devices
  • Lining to for thermal efficiency


These characteristics tend to make the vessels safer and easier to use.

There are a few differences in some dewars, for example portable dewars must have a sturdy construction and casters and are intended for low-pressure transport. Most dewars come with a loose-fitting dust cap over the outlet to prevent moisture from the atmosphere from plugging the neck. This also allows the gas generated from the vaporized liquid to escape.
