Cryogenic Tank Applications by PROTEGO®

At the Gastech, we will present safety concepts for cryogenic applications:

  • Pilot Operated Valves that solve instability problems during operation such as fluttering and chattering
  • Extremely low leakage rates on Breather Valves (much lower than ISO 28300 and API 2000 7th ed.)
  • Cryogenic functional test according to ISO 21013-4 available on request.
  • Low Pressure and Vacuum Conservation Vents - lowest settings with metalic sealing available for best tightness even under high positive pressure 
  • Cleaning for oxygen service available on request.
  • Low pressure Reducing Valves

  • In-Tank Valves for bottom and tank wall discharge line
  • ATEX approved Flame Arresters
  • Sold globally. Serviced locally (PARC).
  • Fully ATEX, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified international company.

PROTEGO® will present the following devices for cryogenic services.


The PROTEGO® Type VN-A-PC pilot-controlled diaphragm valve is a newly developed valve for pressure and vacuum relief. Primarily used as a safety device for outbreathing in tanks, vessels, and process engineering equipment it also offers reliable protection from overpressure and/or vacuum.



In-Tank Valves such as the PROTEGO® ITV-S are used in storage tanks for cryogenic liquids in order to seal off discharge lines in the event of an accident or emergency. These devices comply with the requirements of API 625.



The V/SV-XL type PROTEGO® valve is a highly developed optimized vacuum relief valve with excellent flow performance. It is primarily used as a safety device for relieving vacuum in tanks, containers and process engineering equipment.
