We are the leading provider of cryogenic training, having offered quality education, training, and consulting for 40 years. Educating and training small scale and large cryogenic technologies, our library of course material is unrivaled, and we can build courses to custom-suit your company's needs and goals. CRYOCO has worked on cryocoolers for space applications since that technology was launched into orbit in the 1970s. Our company has also managed the cryogenic fluids and propulsion launch support system for the NASA U.S. Manned Space Program, supporting Space Shuttle and the Space Launch System that will bring future generations to Mars. We help manufacturers keep personnel knowledgeable on cryogenics, assist them in reviewing design changes, perform facility inspections, and offer expert cryogenic consulting, especially regarding safety.
Our most popular course is the Cryogenic Annual 5-Day Summer Course, presented in Golden, Colorado in August each year. We also offer any course of your choosing that can be held at your facility for a schedule that works best for your staff.
Our course instructors are fully knowledgeable in ASME Codes and Standards for PVC Section VIII, Div 1 and Div 2, Pressure Vessel construction and ANSI/ASME B31.3 Process Piping. Fully compliant to OSHA, U.S. Federal HCS, and CFR1910, we offer comprehensive training including resourceful film and photo archives.
CRYOCO LLC provides training for the development of technical capability related to cryogenic applications in commercial, industrial, medical, aerospace, food processing, pharmaceutical, and all other industries.
As new markets arise and more cryogenic applications proliferate, practical training is needed to meet these demands and ensure business success.
To build technical capabilities, the related key aspects of safety, processes, equipment, product development, marketing, and education of both customers and suppliers are addressed.
Our sole service is cryogenic training. We do not market products or services offered by ourselves or others at our courses. We focus on the needs of our customers to receive increased knowledge of cryogenics methods and applications.
If your company or organization would like to have an on-site course at your facility during dates that work best for your staff, we will travel to your location and offer the course that best suits your needs.
Aerospace, Medical Applications, Launch Systems, National Labs, LNG Industry or Commercial Energy entities, and for any cryogenic application: LO2, LN2, LAR, LH2, LHe, and LNG. For course descriptions, please see our "Courses" page. Call or email to schedule a course.
Cryogenics is a branch of physics and engineering involving the production and effects of very low temperatures. The word originates from the Greek words 'kryos' meaning "frost" and 'genic' meaning "to produce” (National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST)). Over the years, the term “cryogenics” has been used to refer to temperatures below approximately -150 C (120 K (-243 °F)) down to Absolute Zero (0 Kelvin / -459 F). This is a logical dividing line, since the normal boiling points of the presumed permanent gases (such as helium, hydrogen, neon, nitrogen, oxygen, and normal air) lie below −120 °C of the common Freon refrigerants and other mixtures.
Extremely cold temperatures can alter the chemical properties of various materials, and liquid gases at or below -150° C can be used to freeze materials. A cryogenic environment is created when a gas begins to liquefy.
The field of cryogenics can be used in a variety of ways: to produce cryogenic fields for rockets, MRI machines, food storage, special effects, cryosurgery (using very cold temperatures to remove tissue or tumors), tissue and blood sample storage, and cooling superconductors. “Cryotherapy” is a new trend, which involves people being exposed to cryogenic fluids for several minutes in order to supposedly reduce inflammation and pain and improve energy levels. Studies are still being done to prove the credibility and effects of this therapy.
Cryogenics is a fast-evolving field. As technology continues to advance, cryogenics will continue to develop and grow so that new applications and methods will be discovered.
