Quilted Superinsulation

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


Large vessels for the storage of cryogenic fluids are field-erected, rather than assembled in a factory, because it is difficult to ship parts much larger than 12 ft in diameter. It is impractical to insulate these field-erected tanks with high-efficiency multilayer insulations by conventional methods, so a new technique has been devised to apply superinsulations to vessels which cannot be moved or rotated.
