Cryogenic Cold Traps

Janis Research Company offers a series of cryogenic cold trap systems (CCT) using mechanical coolers. These traps are primarily used in the adsorption of noble gases, including helium, neon, argon, krypton and xenon. The CCT's aid in the extraction of such gases from geological materials collected from volcanic hot springs, to get insight into the planetary evolution of the Earth. They are also used to adsorb various oxygen isotopes from meteorites and polar ice caps and ocean island olivines.
