Hydrogen Liquefaction

  • Walter Peschka

Abstract

Several procedures have been developed for hydrogen liquefaction, encompassing the range from laboratory liquefaction equipment to large-scale plants. The large-scale end of the spectrum and the developments associated with it were essentially influenced and promoted by space technology requirements. Very detailed literature exists concerning the different procedures for hydrogen liquefaction. This is the basis for the following description of hydrogen liquefaction procedures (see for example [1–4, 6, 7]).
