In recent years there has developed a considerable interest in the storage of cryogens, and particularly hydrogen, in a slush form, mixtures of the liquid and solid phases. The advantages to be gained over liquid storage include decreased boil-off or venting losses and increased density of the cryogen, and both are of significant magnitude in the case of hydrogen [1]. There are of course numerous problems associated with large-scale production transfer and maintenance of such slurries, many of which are being investigated in detail at the present time.
