Note for New Liquid Helium Users
 Read the Internal rules for using the liquid helium and liquid nitrogen(Jpanese) and the User Instruction (Cryogens)(Jpanese). Register your laboratory and your liquid nitrogen vessels. This may take more than a week. Supply procedures are as follows.
  1. Prepare liquid nitrogen vessels of your laboratory. The capacity is not less than 10L and should not exceed 120L. Vessels made of glass are not acceptable.
  2. Confirm your local delivery and retrieve place closest to your laboratory.
    • We register one Delivery / Retrieve Place for each vessel.

Inspection of self-pressurizing liquid nitrogen vessels
The High Pressure Gas Safety Act necessitates inspection of self-pressurizing vessels for liquid nitrogen. Check and confirm the stamped month/year of the previous inspection on the production plate. If the vessels require inspection, proceed with the inspection.
Filling of the vessels overdue for inspection with liquid nitrogen is prohibited.
Consult Liquefaction Division of the Cryogenic Reserch Center or your local supplier to proceed with the inspection. For more detail please see the followings.
