■ Liquid Argon -185.9 oC

■ Liquid Nitrogen -195.8 oC

■ Liquid Helium -268.9 oC

The most common cryogenic liquids are: Cryogenic liquids convert to gas quickly when being decanted


Small volumes of cryogenic liquids are stored and handled in purpose built storage vessels. The two types utilised by ALH customers are;

Pressurized Liquid Vessels (PLVs)

  • Contain cryogenic liquid under pressure
  • Greatest capacity for liquid
  • Filled by trained operators of ALH


  • Non-pressurised storage vessels
  • Insulated containers with lids that can vent
  • Typically filled by PLVs by end users
