CoreWorks engineers choose from over 100 fin surfaces and other components to customize CryoCore® designs to suit your specifications and process requirements.

Compared to conventional shell and tube designs, CryoCore® units require less compressor horsepower, generate up to 10 times greater heat transfer per unit volume, and provide up to 20 times more UA per unit volume. These benefits, combined with multi-stream capability and tighter approach temperatures (less than 2°F (1°C)), produce significantly lower equipment, installation and operating costs.


CryoCore® heat exchangers are perfect for Industrial Gas/Air Separation (IG), Natural Gas Processing (NGP), Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) and Petrochemical (PC) applications. The units are versatile enough to be used in a number of services, including main exchangers, reboilers, subcoolers, condensers and liquefiers.

CryoCores® are robust and highly reliable when operated and cared for in accordance with the CoreWorks installation, operation and maintenance manual.
