Very cold temperatures.
Cryogenic conditions are conditions where temperatures are low enough for gases to condense to become liquids or solids. For IFE capsules, deuterium and tritium can be frozen to solid, cryogenic form by the boiling of liquid helium.
Very low in temperature
Temperature at which gases liquefy at atmospheric pressure.
Empire Magnetics cryogenic motors and related products are rated for an ambient temperature of 20° K though motors rated for an ambient temperature of 4° K have been provided on a custom basis.
any process carried out at very low temperature - say below -50°C
Very low temeratures. Aluminum gains strength as temperature is reduced, making it an appropriate material for cryogenic applications.
Applicable to very low temperature conditions such as liquid nitrogen and below; usually referred to temperatures below 100°K.
A state of materials at and under ambient temperatures.
A term that usually refers to temperatures in the range of -183ºC or lower.
The use of a freezing mixture to provide refrigeration.
Refers to low temperature and low temperature technology. There is no precise temperature for an upper boundary but -100oF is often used.
Extremely cold freezing process, using liquid nitrogen or carbon dioxide, often used to freeze high-value items like shrimp or soft-shell crabs.
A rocket fuel or oxidizer which is liquid only at very low temperatures, e.g. liquid hydrogen which has a boiling point of -217.2oC (-423oF).
Extremely low temperature chemicals that are capable of causing acute or long-term freeze burn damage to the body. Example - ammonia used to deep freeze products in the food packaging industry. Important because suit materials act differently in cold environments. They lose flexibility, often become brittle and show signs of stress cracking. Go to top
Refers to the field of low temperatures, usually -130°F (-90°C) or below, as defined by 173,300(f) of Title 9 of the Code of Federal Regulations.
Used to describe systems at very low temperatures.
Relating to very low temperatures.
Greek krýos: cold, frost. Applied to gases cryogenic refers to low temperatures where the gases are in their liquid phase. For natural gas the boiling temperature (where the phase transition from liquid to gaseous occurs) is -161.5°C (111.5 K) and for hydrogen it is -253°C (20 K).
Very low temperature, associated with liquified gases such as liquid oxygen. While there is no universal standard as to what temperatures are considered cryogenic, many authorities accept the temperature range from -100 °C (-148 °F) and below as cryogenic. The term cryogenics, first noted about 1875, comes from the Greek words "KRYOS" (icy cold) and "GENES" (born).
A material at a very low temperature.
A term referring to very low temperatures. Aluminum becomes stronger as the temperature decreases, making it an ideal material for cryogenic applications.
Pertaining to extremely low temperatures.
Substances having temperatures below -150 degrees F (-101.1 degrees C). Materials, which exist at extremely low temperatures, such as nitrogen. Those gases that must be cooled to a very low temperature in order to bring about a change from a gas to a liquid.
Frozen at extremely low temperatures. The field of cryogenics is attempting to produce temperatures as close to absolute zero as possible. Absolute zero is the temperature at which molecules stop moving altogether.
