Cryogenics in used in several industrial production processes and applications. Within this market segment, cost of ownership, uptime and reliability are the most important drivers. DH Industries is able to provide this market with suitable solutions for their Cryogenic requirements, based on over 40 years of experience, highly reliable equipment, most efficient cryogenic cooling cycle in the market and an extensive global service support organization
Cryogenics can be a very useful and convenient utility for theatrical effects in the entertainment industry. Sudden release of a cryogenic fluid causes moisture in the air to condensate resulting in cool fog effects or spectacular steam effects. Combining the cryogenic fluid with water or steam increases the effect significantly. Especially for this industry Stirling Cryogenics has developed a product range of liquid A ir production plants (StirLAIR). This liquid Air can be used in special effects without creating a dangerous (asphyxiation) for the audience or artist, which can be common with the use of Liquid Nitrogen (LN2).

Cryogen can be used for shrink fitting of parts or for hardening of materials (steel), called cryo tempering. See also the Cryogenic Society website.
In order for superconductors to work they need to be cooled down to Cryogenic temperatures.
For specific applications (for instance high sensitive of very expensive machinery or instrumentation) inert gas (like Nitrogen or Argon) is used as fire extinguisher. In order to store sufficient amounts of these gases they need to be cooled down to Cryogenic temperatures and liquefied.
Liquid air or Oxygen can be used as breathing air for pilots, miners, fire fighters etc.
For specific applications or production processes an inert environment is required. In order to store sufficient amounts of these gases they need to be cooled down to Cryogenic temperatures and liquefied.
