Liquid Nitrogen for remote facilities


The requirement of liquid Nitrogen at a remote facility is logistically complex. How to get liquid Nitrogen on-site?

In most industrial areas liquid Nitrogen is produced in large quantities. In such areas the logistics to distribute the LN2 is simple and reliable due to which supply is no issue.
However, the further away the site of use is, the more expensive and complex the logistics of LN2 will become. The quantity transported by one driver becomes smaller, increasing costs per liter. The longer distances both ways, increases the price even further.

Many science facilities tend to be on even remoter sites that have no direct access by road, or the road is very long and winding. Think of observatories on mountains, research stations on islands or in jungles and research ships.
These conditions will make LN2 suppy unreliable, if at all possible. Quantities used at these sites are relatively small, making them very expensive or uninteresting for bulk suppliers to deliver.

The solution to the above mentioned circumstances is to produce your own liquid Nitrogen on-site. With one of the StirLIN range liquid nitrogen production systems, you can produce your own liquid Nitrogen on-site, close to the application. The only thing you have to put into the system is electricity or fuel for an electric generator. The raw material for liquid Nitrogen is free ambient air. The StirLIN systems are sized to a wide range of liquid Nitrogen consumption patterns. Being fully automatic and having a long mean time between maintenance (MTBF) StirLIN systems will give you the a hassle free liquid Nitrogen supply.

Research Vessels

Research Vessel Sonne and Research Vessel Maria S. Merian

A StirLIN system was installed on the German Research Vessels Maria S. Merian and Sonne. These ships are operated by the German Institute for Marine Sciences and sail around the world for marine research. The StirLIN system makes the scientists on board completely independent of space consuming longtime LN2 storage, required for their scientific research during longer journeys at sea. Logistic problems associated with LN2 supply in remote harbors are no longer a cause for delay thus increasing the number of days at sea.

Observatories

Astronomic observatories are mostly situation remotely on mountain tops, which in turn are often far away from industrial area's.
At remote sites like the Atacama Large Millimeter Array (ALMA) in Chili and the Isaac Newton Group of Telescopes on La Palma, the requirement of having a StirLIN system is evident.

Virus Institutes  

A number of research organisations have remote facilities where virus research is done and where these are stored using liquid Nitrogen.
These facilities are often in jungles where the viruses can be found and thus far away from LN2 supply. For the a StirLIN system is the solution to assure independent and reliable supply of liquid Nitrogen.
