Union Process, Inc's system for controlling the flow of liquid nitrogen.

The system was designed for use with Union Process’s 01-HD and 1-S Laboratory Attritors, but can also be adapted for use with production-sized mills as well.

The engineered system incorporates a probe inside the grinding chamber that monitors the temperature, and at the same time, regulates the flow of liquid nitrogen into the mill to maintain the desired temperature. Raising and lowering the temperature is accomplished by adjusting the dial up or down. The device is then able to change the rate of flow of liquid nitrogen into the chamber to achieve this goal.
