The Development of a New Cryogenic Gasket for Liquid-Oxygen Service

Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 9)


A particularly critical and unique liquid-oxygen gasketing problem was encountered by the George C. Marshall Space Flight Center during the development of the Saturn launch vehicle. Only a marginal solution to this problem has been achieved so far. The need for an improved cryogenic gasket, especially designed for Saturn liquid-oxygen use, was the basis for this program.
