Cryogenic liquid Argon purifier – ULTRAL LAr

Cryogenic liquid Argon purifier – ULTRAL LAr

An exclusive Air Liquide solution for the direct purification of liquid Argon to the level of ppb

ULTRALTM LAr is a manual cryogenic purifier that is used to purify liquid Argon straight off a tanker truck during container stripping or from another source for very high purity applications

ULTRALTM LAr is a purifier specially designed to purify liquid Argon upstream of a liquid storage unit. The adsorption technology employed is used to eliminate impurities such as O2, N2, CH4 down to ppb level. The purification principle is based on cryo-trapping and the chemisorption of the impurities on a bed of high performance adsorbent.

 

Key benefits

  • Cost-effective solution for purifying liquid Argon directly
  • Easy-to-use manual purifier: only one operator is needed!
  • Adsorbent bed that can be regenerated in only 9 H
  • 3µm particle filtration at purifier output

Main technical characteristics

  • Working pressure: < 17.5 barg
  • Flow rate: up to 16,000 L/Hr
  • Autonomy: depends on the level of impurity
