Ice detection in the liquid nitrogen dewar

Ice detection in the liquid nitrogen dewar

Ice detection in the liquid nitrogen dewar

(OP)
Dear All,

Could you please suggest me on how to detect the ice formed in the liquid nitrogen dewar.

Is there any procedure or sensor or any other method to find how much ice and at which spots of the dewar, the ice has formed?

Thanks in advance

Vamsee

We open and close the lid of the dewar to change the samples. The changing of samples were done by a robot. Due to the humidity and the frequent open and close of the dewar lid, it creates a ice at the edges of the dewar.

RE: Ice detection in the liquid nitrogen dewar

Is this LN2 dewar used for 'freeze-shrinking' parts for interference Assy... or tempering/temper-suspension by deep-freezing?

Neither Wil, it sounds like they are holding bio samples in cryo suspension.

@bTrueblood - U r correct...

RE: Ice detection in the liquid nitrogen dewar

Btb... that why I had to ask... This being a Aero Engineering topic forum, n-all... Geeeezz.

Does Eng-Tips even have a Bio engineering forum/area?

RE: Ice detection in the liquid nitrogen dewar

In-our line of work, the LN2 is an expendable commodity... used for specific purposes, then discard... in-line with the typical work I briefly noted.

I have had a similar problem "Ice Blocking" Contact Lens Blanks. To keep frost from forming we blow compressed air that has been dehumidified to -70 C. Commerectial dehumidifiers are available to do this.

White Paper - How ESI is Helping Move New Medical Device Product to Market Quicker & More Cost Effic
Early Supplier Involvement has long been a strategy employed by manufacturers to produce innovative products. Now, it almost seems like a necessity. Because decisions made in the design phase can positively affect product quality and costs, this can help add value to OEM bottom lines. This white paper will discuss many facets of ESI, including why it’s so valuable today, what challenges limit the benefits of ESI, how cost is impacted, and more. Download Now
