Cryogenic storage vessels, CSS and XSS series

Supplier: VWR Collection
CSS series tanks offer storage for small to medium capacity applications. The XSS series offer similar benefits and extended storage capacity. The tanks are manufactured from aluminium alloy with fibre glass/epoxy neck. High vacuum, multi-layered super insulation limits nitrogen evaporation.

  • Extremely low liquid nitrogen evaporation
  • Lid is lockable with padlock (not included)
  • Vessels are equipped with stainless steel canisters with hook for easy retrieval from the vessel

The samples are placed in stainless steel canisters directly in the liquid nitrogen inside the vessel.

Canisters which are 110 mm high can hold one goblet or 1/2 height canes with 3×1,8 ml vials
