As we previously covered in Flexible Hoses Part 1: Understanding the Basics, it’s easy to order the wrong hose. There are a lot of factors that come into play when choosing a flexible hose for cryogenic or compressed gas applications, and it’s not uncommon for customers to get bleary-eyed when diving into the specifics of hose terminology.
How well do you know your flexible hoses? Do the terms ‘permeation,’ ‘post-sintered’ or ‘bend radius’ have meaning or do they seem more like unintelligible industry jargon? If it’s the latter, you’re not alone! Bottom line, it’s easy to order the wrong hose.

Designed specifically to prevent leaking in cryogenic applications, the Worcester C44 Series Ball Valve is highly preferred by technicians in the field for a number of reasons:
An oldie, but a goodie, the Ratermann cylinder ring tag is the O.G. that started it all. Before George Ratermann created Ratermann Manufacturing back in 1997, he came up with an ingenious solution to an everyday problem in the gas distributorship industry: how to quickly and unquestionably know if a cylinder was empty or full.
Cleaner in appearance, and much more reliable than Teflon tape, Flouramics Lox-8 Paste is the answer to all your lubricant and sealant concerns.
Atmospheric gas packaging is a growing technology that is done by manipulating gases to remove oxygen from a high barrier or permeable package. It is achieved by using inert gases including nitrogen, carbon dioxide, and exotic gases such as argon or helium to inject and remove multiple times to eliminate until the oxygen is eliminated. It is also known as modified atmosphere packaging, protective atmosphere packaging, reduced oxygen packaging, and gas flushing.
