For over half a century, Scientific Instruments has supported numerous space programs and related applications needing temperature monitoring for cryogenic fuel management. These applications include, but are not limited to, storage, transfer, and launch vehicles. Scientific Instruments’ relationship with NASA evolved from the early Apollo days to include support of the Hubble Telescope, ground support for the Space Shuttle Program, and the Delta & Atlas Launch Systems, where Scientific Instruments provided the first successful cryogenic fuel float switch for the Delta II rocket.
Today, Scientific Instruments offers a variety of robust, customizable cryogenic temperature probes including the Series 44 and Series 46. Constructed of stainless steel and hermetically sealed, these probes are designed for use in the most extreme environments. Customization options include sensor type (Silicon diode or RTD), length, wetted surface diameter, stem profile, process connection, and electrical connectivity.
Other specialty customizations are available. Scientific Instruments also can provide acceptance testing, qualification testing, and CFD modeling as your specific application requires. Please contact our sales team for more information.
