The products listed below are examples of the types of equipment Linde may utilize in tailoring a custom solution for your operations.

Cryogenic Freezers

Linde is an authorized distributor and service partner for various other manufacturers of cryogenic storage freezers. Our knowledgeable staff helps customers select among a variety of models to meet their needs, considering key parameters such as sample capacity, liquid nitrogen efficiency, storage temperature, automation, and mode of operation (liquid phase or vapor phase). Linde’s factory-trained technicians support freezer installation, startup, the manufacturer recommended maintenance, emergency service, and repair. The revamped plumbing, vacuum technology along with the vacuum hoses helps the new generation freezers lower operating cost which is attributed to some reduction in their LN2 usage.

Freezer Racks

Linde carries a complete line of standard and custom racking systems to accommodate various freezers and applications. Racks can be configured for vials, straws, blood bags, or other sample bags or cassettes, and all are manufactured for long-term durability and performance.

Cold Chain Management

Linde provides a full range of products for maintaining the integrity of frozen samples during handling or transport, including simple liquid nitrogen containers, portable workbenches, an array of cryogenic vapor shippers, and dry ice in various formats. 


Liquid Nitrogen Supply Systems 

Linde offers comprehensive supply options for liquid nitrogen, ranging from portable, stand-alone dewars (160 to 240 liters) to microbulk tanks (up to 3,000 liters) and bulk tanks (up to 13,000 gallons). We further provide the piping, accessories, and other components comprising a liquid nitrogen supply system.

Cryogenic Backup

Linde can integrate liquid nitrogen or carbon dioxide supply systems to provide backup refrigeration to mechanical, compressor-based storage freezers operating near -80°C. These cryogenic backup options allow for a safe transition time for freezer repair or sample relocation.
