Energy

Cryogenic processing changes the way current flows in a conductor. It can directly influence the energy efficiency by improving the qualities of cryogenically treated wires and other suitable components in the power industry. Aluminum, copper, lead, and other materials used in the electronics industry can be affected by cryogenic treatments. A cryogenic wire treatment can significantly produce higher strength compared with the conventional manufacturing and processing methods. All of these materials once cryogenically treated exhibit longer wear, more durability, and a better conductivity rating.

Upon returning to room temperature, the molecules in these materials stay in this new relationship. As a result, they produce less random and more even spacing. The open areas between the grid matrixes are significantly reduced. to one another. The final cryogenically treated components exhibit much better electrical current flows. Cryogenic processing also strengthens solder, which is less subject to lifting and make their joints stronger. The increase in conductivity can be from 5% to 10%. Thanks to the improved efficiency of transformers in power industry you can expect as much as an 11% of overall improvement in energy efficiency.

What are the benefits of cryogenically treated wires?

  • Improved mechanical properties
  • Increased electrical conductivity
  • Reduction of dynamic recovery of copper
  • Achieving much better strength levels of up to 50 % higher
  • A decrease in tensile strength
  • The crystallographic texture change
  • The ability to produce high strength conductors
  • Decreased resistance on wires
  • Improved step up and step down in energy efficiency to transformers
