Vacuum insulation for low temperature fluid transfer

Ensure optimal temperature maintenance, enhance safety, conserve valuable materials, and improve performance of your cryogenic system with Insulon vacuum jacketed hoses.

Insulon hoses excel when handling extremely cold or cryogenic temperatures. The key lies in their double-walled design which offers unmatched thermal insulation and energy efficiency.

By incorporating advanced vacuum technology, the double-walled hose creates a vacuum-sealed space between the inner and outer layers. The vacuum barrier effectively minimizes heat transfer and reduces cryogenic fluid boil-off losses.


  • Maintain safer surface temperatures with high performance insulation
  • Reduce material losses due to boil-off by minimizing heat transfer
  • Reduce accumulation of frost and condensation
  • 100% stainless steel surfaces on interior and exterior of hose
  • Compatible with liquid cryogens including liquid nitrogen, hydrogen, helium, argon, and carbon dioxide
  • ASTM G93 oxygen cleanliness up to Level A available upon request


  • Reduce potential exposure to cryogenic temperatures to Improve plant or laboratory safety
  • Conserve valuable cryogenic materials
  • Prevent moisture from collecting on the surfaces of the hose; minimize dripping
  • Inter, non-reactive materials are easy to sterilize; compatible with cleanroom requirements

Safer surface temperature analysis

This chart illustrates the temperature difference between the process media (LN2, -196°C) and the external surface of an Insulon vacuum jacketed hose. The temperature difference at steady state was over 205°C (369°F). Ambient temperature was 23°C.

This analysis was conducted with a 1/2″ ID x 6′ L Insulon vacuum jacketed hose, low pressure (LP). High pressure hoses also available. Option to include multi-layer insulation (MLI) for “super” insulation performance.
