Abstract : An alarm system was designed which continuously monitors the gas output from vessels in which cryogens are either stored or used. The system is fail safe in nature. It provides a visual and an auditory alarm in the event that venting is restricted or a component failure takes place. Repeated manual checking of venting is eliminated, this allowing the experimenter to concentrate upon the investigation without risk that high pressures may be developing within Dewars containing the cryogenics.
