Python®​ Vacuum Insulated Pipe

Python vacuum insulated pipe is the best value in vacuum insulated piping on the market.


Chart Vacuum TechnologyPython pipe products provide thermal performance for normal and high pressure applications that far exceeds conventional foam insulation products, takes only a fraction of the space and requires no additional protection against moisture or vapors. External bellows optimize flow of cryogenic liquid. Field welding is required.

  • Easy: Preconfigured, attractively priced and in inventory.
  • Adaptable: Wide pressure range, suitable for LN2, LAR, LNG and LCO2.
  • Performance: Thermal efficiency is more than 10 times greater than foam insulated pipe.

Liquid Applications

Python vacuum insulated pipe accommodates pressure up to 400 psi. This piping is ideal for highly temperature-sensitive piping systems found in the petrochemical, energy, manufacturing and food and beverage industries around the world, and is an excellent choice for liquid CO2 applications.

Highlights

The Python VIP system offers lower-cost, pre-engineered standard modular sections for flexible configuration. Connections are field welded, and the modules can be reused by cutting and welding. Exterior bellows offer improved flow and reduced pressure drop while accommodating up to 400°F temperature differential.

Python VIP End Transitions

Python VIP end transitions are standard butt weld joints for the inner pipe. The insulation system begins with a radiation shield, joint pre-formed foam, and a durable stainless outer jacket.

Python VIP Modules

Python VIP modules provide pre-engineered thermal performance that far exceeds conventional foam insulation materials and take up a fraction of the space. Units are available in 304 stainless steel (rigid) or 321 stainless steel (flex). Standard certification includes:

  • Piping systems built in accordance with ASME B31.3
  • Manufactured in an ISO-9001:2008 facility
  • Cleaned for cryogenic service (not O2)
  • Helium mass spec tested to 1x10-9 cc/sec
