Metal Spinning for Cryogenic
Metal Components for Cryogenic Applications
Tanfield’s range of metal spinning services, which includes pressing, machining, fabricating & welding, polishing, and bespoke metal spinning, enable us to produce parts needed for many cryogenic processes. This includes facilitating both extreme drops in temperature, and the freezing of solids, liquids, and gases. Metal spun parts for cryogenics can vary drastically in the role they fill. This is why our wide range of metal forming capabilities make us ideal for doing metal spinning work in this industry.
Our experts specialise in the creation of metal spun parts used heavily in cryogenics, such as tank heads. Tanfield can produce many metal cryogenic parts, including the following:
- Cryogenic tank bases
- Mounting brackets
- End caps
- Cryogenic tank heads
- Storage vessels
Capabilities used to deliver metal spun Cryogenic products
At Tanfield, we use our knowledge to match metal spinning services to our customers’ specifications. For instance, members of our metal spinning team might advise metal swaging or metal fabrication & welding to get the best results for a certain project. This also means that if you require unique cryogenic products, we sit down to discuss what processes will get the best results.
We understand the properties required for cryogenic equipment to maintain functionality. That’s why we use stainless steel 316/316L – an austenitic grade alloy containing Chromium, Nickel and Molybdenum. This material is well suited to cryogenic applications as it can endure large changes in temperature and pressure. Our experience working with stainless steel allows for flexible and adaptable metal spinning services, which is something we provide regardless of sector.
While stainless steel 316/316L is a tough metal to form, our capabilities still allow us to use of a variety of metal forming processes. For instance, our largest hydraulic press has a capacity of 350 tons. Alongside metal pressing, we offer machining and polishing services for cryogenic projects.
Tanfield has the capabilities necessary to perform and make adjustments in our metal spinning process to accommodate a wide range of materials including:
