Abstract This work concerns, in part, the construction of conformal Jordan cells of infinite rank and their reductions to conformal Jordan cells of finite rank. How a procedure similar to Lie algebra contractions may reduce a conformal Jordan cell of finite rank to one of lower rank is also discussed. A conformal Jordan cell of rank one corresponds to a primary field. This offers a picture in which any finite conformal Jordan cell of a given conformal weight may be obtained from a universal covering cell of the same weight but infinite rank.
