Cryotron and National Cryogenics Corporation is one of the pioneers in cryogenic treatment and continues to be a leader in the development of public awareness for the use of cryogenic technology.

Through continuing research Cryotron has developed procedures that provide greater predictability of tooling performance. This research involves tooling procedures common to a wide range of industries and includes numerous tooling applications.

Years of research, however, have neither scratched nor dented the surface of cryogenics, as new applications for the wear metal process appear every day. National Cryogenics looks forward to its continued participation in the research and development of cryogenics and related equipment and products in the field.

Technical Research and Development Advisors

Mr. Bill Bryson:

  • Metals Advisor

  • Author of "Cryogenics", "Heat Treatment, Selection And Application of Tool Steels", and "Heat Treatment: Master Control Manual"

William "Bill" Bryson is a well known metals advisor and one of the pioneers in various fields of heat treatment, cryogenics, and wear properties of metals. He is the author of a number of books specializing in the theory and practice of metal wear analysis characteristics.

"I can’t tell you how great your cryogenic processors operate. I’ve been involved with cryogenics since the late 60s and have seen just about every brand of processor on the market. The Cryotron processor is by far the best, safest, and most cost efficient processor I’ve operated. As well as helping people from all over the world, I also ran a processing business for several years and the Vari-Cold process has proven it’s ability to save liquid nitrogen and made our own operation more cost effective." ~ William E. Bryson
