Vacuum Jacketed Pipe Systems
The most cost-effective way to transfer cryogenic liquids, Vacuum Jacketed Pipe (VJP) also known as Vacuum Insulated Piping (VIP) is the preferred piping solution for the safe, reliable, cost-effective transfer of cryogenic liquids. ACME Cryogenics makes jacketed pipe with cryogenic insulation for liquid Nitrogen, Liquid Oxygen, Argon, Helium, Natural Gas, Carbon Dioxide, Hydrogen, and LNG — from storage tanks to the final use point for cryogenic liquid piping.

Why choose Vacuum Jacketed Piping Systems?
Heat leaks can make transferring cryogenic liquids an inefficient and expensive process. VJP systems or Cryogenic liquid Piping minimize these leaks through their innovative, efficient design. Vacuum Jacketed Pipe is essentially two stainless steel pipes in one—an inner carrier pipe in which the cryogenic liquids like liquid Nitrogen and Oxygen to name a few are transferred, and an outer pipe that supports and seals the vacuum insulation, forming the “Vacuum Jacket” around the inner pipe. The numerous advanced features of Acme Cryogenic Vacuum Jacketed Piping solutions work together to produce exceptional efficiencies across the entire system. You’ll receive the best insulation capacity while keeping your costs down, as compared to foam and dynamic vacuum pipe systems.
The “Quality Cryogenics” brand of Vacuum Jacketed Pipe (VJP) was acquired by Acme Cryogenics in 2001. With the new name came added resources. Our current customers include major aerospace companies, all major gas distributors, and the US Government.
Each VJP project is managed by a sales engineer that has been trained in ASME B31.3 pipe design, cryogenic safety and VJP project management. As your insulated pipe suppliers, we can offer technical assistance for your pipe system design, as well as cryogenic valves and cryogenic fittings, regardless of your level of experience. Our sales engineers have over 40 years of combined experience with vacuum jacketed pipe and cryogenic hose design.
Acme’s field service technicians provide services for cryogenic piping systems and cryogenic tanks, performing complete installs and removals, helium leak detection, Perlite top-off, vacuum repairs, system/safety upgrades and piping repairs.
We make jacketed pipe with cryogenic insulation for liquid Nitrogen, liquid Oxygen, Argon, Helium, Natural Gas, Carbon Dioxide, Hydrogen and LNG — from storage tanks to final use point. Each Vacuum Insulated Piping system is designed for efficient transfer of cryogenic liquid at pressures up to 150 psi or greater. Our piping features double wall construction that has an inner pipe for the transfer of liquid and an outer pipe to support and retain the vacuum insulation. The inner and outer pipe is constructed of 300 series stainless steel. Insulation is a low vacuum with multiple layer insulation (MLI).
