CVI Valves

Acme Cryogenics’ CVI Cryogenic Valve delivers precise performance, long life, and exceptional reliability ensuring your process or facility’s operation and safety, while minimizing downtime.


For over 50 years, Acme CVI Cryogenic Valves have provided unparalleled service and reliability for customers throughout the cryogenic industry. With higher Cv values than standard valves and minimum wall thicknesses for reduced heat leak and cool downtimes, the bubble-tight design of the CVI valve is perfectly suited for the most demanding applications.

CVI V Series Valves

Acme’s CVI V-Series valves incorporate a close tolerance design with extremely low heat leak characteristics to produce a valve that is both incredibly efficient and versatile. Using a very small amount of ambient heat, the close fitting internal parts produce a vapor barrier that prevents liquid from being able to reach the valve bonnet allowing the V-Series to be mounted in any orientation, even upside-down, providing you maximum flexibility in design.
Model V-1060
The manually operated V-1060 is the perfect choice wherever a manual valve is required. The large, ergonomic hand wheel makes the valve easy to open and close. The quick, open-flow plug allows the valve to reach near-full flow by the time the valve is half open.
Model V-1070
When remote on/off control is required, exchanging a few components allows the V-1060 to be mounted with a pneumatic actuator. Our piston style actuators, available in normally open or normally closed configurations, require approximately 80 PSI to fully open or close. If only low pressure air is available, diaphragm actuators, requiring 30 PSI, can be supplied. Standard actuator options include manual hand wheel overrides and limit switches.
Model V-1080
When flow control is required, the V-1080 valve with accurate throttling capability is supplied. The digital positioner modulates the valve based on a 4-20 mA input signal. Either a linear or equal percent flow control strategy can be employed.
Model V-1090
The same specially-machined flow-control body used in the V-1080 can be supplied with a threaded stem/bonnet assembly and handwheel for manual throttling operation.
C-Series Valves
When mounting a valve with the stem in a near-vertical orientation, the C-series valves provide a more cost effective alternative to the close tolerance design of the V-series valves. Available in ½” through 2” pipe sizes and manufactured from the same pressure boundary components, the C-1060/1070/1080/1090 valves provide all of the other features and accessories available in the V-series valves but without the close tolerance internal components
Q-Series Valves
Designed to fit in tight spaces, the Q-Series ½” valve is available in manual (Q-1060) and Actuated (Q-1070) versions and can be supplied in a Y-pattern or T-pattern (straight) valve body. Supplied with the vacuum jacket installed, the Q-series valves offer the option of a threaded purge port in the lower flange. The Q-series valves must be mounted within a 45-degree vertical orientation and have a maximum working pressure of 350 PSIG.
Vacuum Seal-Off Valves
Vacuum Seal-Off Valves Vacuum seal-off valves, part of the complete line of CVI Valves, have been designed to fulfill system design requirements for a safe, reliable method of vacuum closure. Available in two sizes - ½” and 1” - the V-1044 and V-1046 respectively, serve as pump-out and isolation valves, as well as safety release devices. These valves offer added reliability when used with vacuum vessels, vacuum insulated cryogenic storage and transport containers, and vacuum insulated transfer lines where permanent or semi-permanent vacuum is required.
