CryoVation - Helium Zone Management for Helium Gas
Jered Ruyle of Tyler Welding Supply, Texas, discussing the CryoVation Helium Zone Management System is designed to efficiently manage filling of helium cylinders. The act of “cascade” filling involves the filling of cylinders in steps of pressure. Most commonly, tube trailers are used as the gas source. Starting from the “low” tube, pressure is “cascaded” into the receiving cylinders. Tubes are opened sequentially until a target pressure has been reached and closed.
The Helium Zone Management System, used in conjunction with a filling panel, gives an operator the ability to open and close appropriate zones [tubes] through an HMI digital touch panel display. The pressure of each zone is closely monitored by a pressure transducer allowing for fast, accurate data at the control panel.
