A string of superconducting magnets is to be set at an arc section of the J-PARC neutrino beam line. To keep the magnets at superconducting condition, a helium cryogenic facility is to be constructed. Parts of cryogenic devices are located beside the magnets, so thier resistance to radiation with predicted dose of 1 MGy in maximum must be assured. A cryogenic control valve is one of the active devices used in the radio-active area, and its radio-proof characteristics is improved by (1) exchaging intolerant materials by proof ones, (2) moving the feed back control circuit unit including electronics from the valve body to a low radio-active area. Two prototype valves, a tuning valve and a Gauzky relief valve, have been prepared and have been tested by using the Cobalt 60 irradiation facility in JAEA. Actual operations of the both prototypes have been checked at the irradiation test bench, and they were successfully operated after irradiation of 1 MGy.
