Cryogenic Vacuum Insulation for Vessels and Piping
8 May 2015

In this application note, thermal performance tests were conducted to determine optimal placement and use of MLI and Cryolite™ fiberglass blanket within cryogenic storage systems. These tests indicated that it is preferential to use the blanket on the cold side of the MLI, and that placing radiation shields within several blankets of Cryolite™ drastically improves thermal performance of the insulation system at higher vacuum levels.
