An Airborne Cyrogenic System for Pneumatic Power Generation, Cooling, and Other Uses
This paper describes an airborne cryogenic system for pneumatic power generation which has been developed and constructed by Sundstrand-Turbo. This system maintains a gas storage bottle at 3000 psi upon demand by pumping stored liquid nitrogen from a vacuum jacketed container. The pump is a small high pressure multi-piston type driven by a turbine utilizing the 3000 psi stored gas supply. Figure 1 shows a picture of this system which will be described more fully. The system shown has a storage capacity of 20 liters, 36 pounds of liquid, and will deliver approximately 6 pounds per minute of nitrogen gas.
