TAI developed and holds a patent on the use of microspheres as a cryogenic insulation material in bulk form. Our revolutionary product, CryoSpheres™, are hollow microscopic glass bubbles that are light, strong, free flowing, noncorrosive, and specifically formulated for use as cryogenic insualtion per TAI specification. They combine in a single material, the desirable properties which other insulation materials only possess individually. When used as a cryogenic insulating material, CryoSpheres™ exhibit the optimal combination of thermal performance, physical characteristics, cost, weight, durability, and low maintenance.
This exceptional cryogenic insulation material has repeatedly proven to reduce boil-off (of costly cryogens) by as much as 51% over perlite, while at the same time drastically reducing all maintenance costs and wear and tear on cryogenic storage tanks and transfer lines. CryoSpheres™ are the optimal insulation material for cold boxes, Dewars, and cryogenic storage tanks of all configurations; this material is the 21st century's answer to the outdated and issue-plagued perlite insulation of the past.
