Can I store liquid nitrogen in a borosilicate glass tray

You can store liquid nitrogen in a borosilicate glass tray. It's important to check the temperature of the vessel regularly as very low temperatures can cause the glass to become brittle and break.

Yes, you can store liquid nitrogen in a glass container.

As long as you are using a vessel that is designed for storing liquid nitrogen (and there are plenty on the market), it should be safe to store your liquid nitrogen in a glass tray. However, it is important to check the temperature of the vessel regularly and make sure that it does not get too cold. As noted above, very low temperatures can cause borosilicate glass to become brittle.

Under normal conditions and use, it is quite safe to do so.

The tray must be made of borosilicate glass (the same kind used in Pyrex) and must be able to withstand the low temperature of liquid nitrogen (-196°C). The liquid nitrogen must be kept in the tray at -196 degrees C, so it cannot be taken out for any reason except for cleaning or replacement with fresh liquid nitrogen (please note that you should always have a second empty tray ready on hand before taking any actions with your container of liquid nitrogen).

The tray also needs to be stored in a freezer at -20°C or colder until such time as you plan on using it again. Do not use this tray for anything else besides storing your sample bottles, as some chemicals may still react with other materials in unpredictable ways!

It is important to check the temperature of the vessel regularly as very low temperatures can cause the glass to become brittle.

Your liquid nitrogen should be between -196 and -190 degrees Celsius at all times. If the temperature drops below -196 degrees Celsius, it is important to check the temperature of your vessel regularly as very low temperatures can cause borosilicate glass to become brittle. If it rises above -196 degrees Celsius, the liquid nitrogen will evaporate and your storage container will no longer be able to hold any liquid nitrogen until it cools down again.

You should be fine using a borosilicate glass tray.

However, keep in mind that very low temperatures can cause the glass to become brittle and breakable, so if you notice your liquid nitrogen level is getting low or the vessel has cracked or broken, do not use it!

Hopefully, this article has helped you get a better understanding of whether storing liquid nitrogen in glass is safe or not. We believe that it is, but there are some important things that you need to keep in mind. It’s important to check the temperature of the vessel regularly as very low temperatures can cause the glass to become brittle and break. You should also make sure that there are no cracks in your borosilicate glass storage tray before using it with liquid nitrogen.
