Insulon Vacuum Jacketed Hose with Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI)

Achieve maximum thermal precision and control in fluid transfer applications with Insulon vacuum jacketed hose with MLI. Compatible with cryogenic and chiller fluids including liquid nitrogen, hydrogen, glycol, and others. Compatible with high temperature fluids including steam, exhaust, and specialty gases.

How does MLI work?

Insulon hoses with MLI target all three types of heat transfer to maximize thermal energy efficiency. Vacuum barriers minimize convection and conduction heat transfer, while multi-layer insulation (MLI) reduces radiation by reflecting it back towards the source. For very cold, very hot, or highly sensitive applications, Insulon Hose with MLI may be recommended.

Operating temperature range

For decades, vacuum jacketed hoses have been relied upon in extreme cold (cryogenic) applications. Today, high temperature applications can achieve the same ultra-high performance insulation with Insulon hose. Operates in applications from -270 to 900 C.

Smaller outer diameter

Insulon hoses typically have a smaller outer diameter than other vacuum jacketed hoses. The MLI inside Insulon hoses is engineered with proprietary, high density technology for maximum thermal efficiency in sleek, compact, ergonomic packaging.

316L stainless steel

The internal and external surfaces of Insulon hoses are 316L stainless steel. Compatible with cleanroom environments. ASTM G93 cleanliness up to Level A upon request.
