About Us

Our History and Who We are Today

Our Story

For almost six decades, CPC-Cryolab has been one of the most trusted names is the industrial gas and cryogenic valve business.

CPC-Cryolab was founded in Florida to support the Space Program and the world’s first commercial size liquid hydrogen plant. The plant was built in Palm Beach County and CPC designed and manufactured all of the valves, filters, piping and transfer connections used in the facility.

In 2000, CIRCOR acquired the Rockwood-Swendeman line of cryogenic safety relief valves from Rockwood Systems of Portland, Maine. This industry valued line of SRV’s helped to further compliment the growing family of CIRCOR Cryogenics diverse offering of cryogenic products.

A large number of our product offerings are used in liquid hydrogen and liquid helium services. We are known as the world leading manufacturer of liquid hydrogen and liquid helium cryogenic components and equipment. We pride ourselves with the largest and most diverse family of products supporting the hydrogen and helium markets with; vacuum jacketed filters, valves, hoses, piping systems, manifolds and transfer connections available in the industry.

Who We Are Today

Today, CPC-Cryolab continues to produce state-of-the-art equipment while developing new technology for the cryogenic and industrial gas industries. At the start of the new millennium, CPC-Cryolab manufacturing was moved to Tampa, Florida into a larger valve production facility of our holding company CIRCOR International, Inc. The majority of our cryogenic products are manufactured in this Florida facility.

CPC-Cryolab has tens of thousands of valves and equipment in live hydrogen service around the globe today, with a vast number of this equipment being built as far back as 35-40 years in continuous liquid hydrogen service and applications without a single incident. CIRCOR Cryogenic products provide highly engineered, long term solutions upheld by the highest standards for performance, safety and our world’s environment.

CPC-Cryolab celebrates its 59th anniversary in 2020 as brand and product line of CIRCOR International, Inc., which is traded on the NYSE as CIR.

World-Class Customers

CPC-Cryolab cryogenic valves are used extensively throughout the US and globally by all of the industrial gas companies, as well as NASA and ground support facilities throughout the United States.

Back in the early nineties, we were the primary valve supplier to the Super-Conducting Super-Collider (SSC) project for both magnet cooling and liquefier production. Today, our control valves are used in highly critical applications in both liquid and gas production facilities. We supply cryogenic valves and associated hardware for many national laboratories involved in subatomic particle research with liquid helium cooled accelerator rings. Our product are used in applications such as hydrogen mobility, space, medical diagnosis devises, and semiconductors to name a few.

High Standards

Industrial gas producers such as Air Products and Chemicals, Praxair, Linde (BOC) and Air Liquide have all specified our valves and hardware worldwide for both their own usage, as well as for usage by their customers.

As long as the space shuttle has been flying, CPC-Cryolab has designed and manufactured the valves, filters, VJ manifolds and VJ fill hoses that control the liquid oxygen (LOX) and liquid hydrogen (LH2) loaded onto the shuttle for engine fuel, breathing gas, and fuel cell power generation. Our products were part of the Apollo missions to take mankind to the moon.

Products and Services

We continue to be known as the world leading manufacturer of cryogenic components. Our diverse product line includes vacuum jacketed filters, valves, hoses, piping manifolds and transfer connections.

We manufacture a complete line of cryogenic valves, filters and bayonets used for LNG, standard cryogenic and specialty gases, as well as Ultra High Purity cryogenic systems supporting the semiconductor industry.
CPC-Cryolab has provided extensive research in cooperation with major industrial gas companies in the principles and workings of cryogenic valves and filters. We hold these reports as well as any of the acceptance reports in strict confidentiality.
