Abstract

The increasing uses for liquid hydrogen and liquid helium have presented new and unique challenges to the talents of cryogenic equipment designers. The physical properties of these liquids coupled with their value, as compared to other liquefied gases produced in large quantities, have dictated a course of continued improvement in the thermal efficiency of storage and distribution equipment.
