Engineers from Linde Process Plants came to BRHS to give a presentation and demonstration of cryogenics. Cryogenics is the study of the production of very low temperature (below −150 °C, −238 °F or 123 K) and the behavior of materials at those temperatures. Linde Cryogenics (LC), a Division of Linde Process Plants, Inc, member of the Engineering Division of the Linde Group, has built a reputation as a leading supplier of helium liquefaction systems.
