Kryolize is a software tool for sizing relief valves that protect against overpressure. It is based on international and European standards, and was originally conceived to respond to the specific needs of CERN to develop valves for use with the very low temperature of liquid helium. Kryolize is supported by the Knowledge Transfer group, and benefits from funding from the CERN Knowledge Transfer Fund. Kryolize currently has 30 users at CERN, and six licences have so far been granted to other research laboratories. Potential applications include domains ranging from the food industry to cryogenic techniques in medicine. Kryolize is also involved in R&D collaborations to ensure that new technologies in the cryogenic field are designed in a safe way.
