National Center for Quality Supervision and Inspection of Cryogenic Vessels (Guangdong)
The National Low Temperature Container Quality Supervision and Inspection Center (Guangdong) (hereinafter referred to as the National Low Temperature Center) was approved by the AQSIQ and the State Certification and Accreditation Administration (National Quality Inspection Association  No. 560) on October 30, 2013. Based on the establishment of the Guangdong Special Equipment Inspection Institute, on the south side of Changjiang Road, Sanshan Island, Pingzhou Town, Nanhai District, Foshan City, the low temperature center has built a test and research building covering an area of 1,500 square meters and a construction area of 4,500 square meters. The inspection workshop is 1,500 square meters, the laboratory is 2000 square meters, and the office, data archives and conference rooms are about 1000 square meters.
In order to improve the quality of the inspection and scientific research team and optimize the talent structure, the National Low Temperature Center actively introduces senior technical talents of this profession. In recent years, it has introduced 2 doctors, 1 researcher and 2 masters. There are 44 staff members in the low temperature center, including 1 researcher, 5 doctors, 17 masters and 16 undergraduates. The proportion of undergraduates and above is 80%, and the proportion of intermediate and above professional technical titles is 76%. Professionally equipped with high-quality scientific and technological personnel, key personnel and professional and technical personnel have rich testing experience and solid technical level, and have the ability to conduct independent research;
The main equipment of the National Low Temperature Center has reached 92 sets, and the total value of the equipment has reached more than 12 million yuan. These include 30 sets of international advanced equipment such as specific surface area adsorption instrument, thermal conductivity meter, residual gas analyzer, high vacuum unit, helium mass spectrometer leak detector, infrared thermal imager and ANSYS analysis software, with a value of more than 9 million yuan. The center is equipped with cryogenic vessel performance laboratory, cryogenic gas cylinder performance laboratory, cryogenic pipeline performance laboratory, cryogenic valve laboratory, vaporizer laboratory, safety accessory laboratory, thermal insulation material laboratory, adsorption material laboratory, mechanical performance laboratory. There are 10 laboratories in the simulation and simulation laboratory, as well as a testing workshop for cryogenic tankers and cryogenic cylinders.
Up to now, the National Cryogenic Center has undertaken 10 national, provincial and ministerial-level scientific research projects, published more than 20 papers related to cryogenic containers, applied for 12 patents, participated in the preparation of 2 national standards, and independently compiled 3 local standards.
Through continuous efforts, the National Cryogenic Center has built a high-quality scientific research and inspection team, equipped with a number of internationally advanced high-end testing equipment, and built a laboratory capable of meeting the low temperature performance testing of most cryogenic container products and components. At the same time, a series of scientific research management and performance distribution system to ensure the healthy development of the low temperature center have been established. The inspection service of the low temperature center is also booming, and its influence and authority are being recognized by more and more industry leaders and experts. The low temperature center strives to become the authoritative technical organization for cryogenic vessel inspection research, which can provide guarantee for the safety of cryogenic vessels, provide technical services and support for enterprise production, and provide a platform for technical exchange of cryogenic vessels and related industries.
