New Practice for Vacuum Insulated Piping for Cryogenic Applications

1. Scope

Standardize the insulation design, fabrication, installation, and maintenance of vacuum insulated piping for cryogenic applications.


Vacuum Jacket Piping; Vacuum Insulated Piping; Multilayer Insulation


As cryogenics becomes a larger portion of the daily lives of people around the world, care must be taken to protect the public from the cryogenic surfaces as well as minimize the ineffectiveness of cryogenic processes caused by parasitic heat losses. While standards exist for insulating cryogenic tanks, both stationary and transportable, as well as the manufacturing of cryogenic piping, the applicability of these standards for the insulation of cryogenic vacuum insulated piping is lacking.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
