Capacity Railroad Tank Cars for Cryogenic Fluids, or Cryogenic Tank
Cars for short, are used for the transportation of super-cold fluids
such as liquid oxygen, nitrogen and argon. These tank cars solved
the problem of maintaining extremely low temperatures while transporting
large quantities of these materials over long distances.
to how cold these cars could keep liquid oxygen? How about -297
degrees F. Liquid nitrogen kept at -320 F. And liquid argon at
-302 degrees F. Now, thats cold!
capacity tank cars could transport more than 15,000 gallons of
liquid oxygen--which is about double what any of its predecessors
