Resistencias Tope, S.A. obtained contract from CERN

RESISTENCIAS TOPE, S.A. obtained contract from the EUROPEAN ORGANIZATION FOR NUCLEAR RESEARCH known as CERN

RESISTENCIAS TOPE, S.A. obtained a contract for suppling electrical heaters for the purpose of heating gaseous argon in a high purity closed circuit. This project included fully a welded cylindrical Stainless Steel vessel construction without flanges, insulation, fluid in-/outlet, heater bundle and connection box. Temperature range requirements of min. -173ºC and max. 250ºC as well as a design pressure of 12 bar. Besides the Pressure test according to European Directive 2014/68/EU, electrical tests justifying conformity to IE C60204 and material certificates a Helium leak test according EN 1779 (integral leak rate towards the atmosphere with a differential pressure of 10 bar and helium leak rate lower than < 10-10      Pa m3 s-1). In addition an oxygen cleaning based on the standard IGC Doc 33/06/E, European Gases Association AISBL, cleaning of equipment for oxygen service was accomplished.

Resistencias Tope S.A. is proud to have contributed with its products to one of the largest and most respected research centers in the world.
