About Us

Our History

CPC-Cryolab is composed of two of the most trusted names is the industrial gas and cryogenic valve business, both founded in 1961.

The company was formally Consolidated Precision Corporation, also known as CPC. CPC 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 1997, the Cryolab product line of valves was added to complement CPC’s complete line.

Who We Are Today

Today, the company 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 was moved to Tampa, Florida into a larger valve production facility known as Leslie Controls, Inc., which is a division of CIRCOR International, Inc. At the present time, a majority of the company’s cryogenic products are manufactured in this facility.

CPC-Cryolab will celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2011 and is a division 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.

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. In addition, we were the primary valve supplier to the Super-Conducting Super-Collider (SSC) project for both magnet cooling and liquifier production.

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.

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.
