Abstract

Thermal regenerators have been applied to the production of refrigeration since the latter part of the nineteenth century, and their use in gas liquefaction and separation was introduced by Frankl in 1928. However, their use has generally been restricted to temperatures no lower than that of liquid nitrogen.
