|Abstract: ||A combined solution is presented for minimizing the safety hazards associated with closed cycle cryostats described by Swainson & Cranswick [J. Appl. Cryst. (2010), 43, 206-210]. The initial solution is to install a vent tube with one open end deep inside the sample space and a pressure relief valve at the top. This solution works for either a cryogen or a cryogen-free (closed cycle) system. The second approach, which can be combined with the first and is applicable to cryogen-free cryostats, involves electrically interlocking the closed cycle refrigerator compressor to the sample space, so that the system cannot be cooled in the presence of a leak path to air. © 2013, Wiley-Blackwell.|
