Abstract:

Section I establishes the current availability and specifications for liquid hydrogen pumps and cites the operational experience reported by the major users of these items. Section II sets forths a tested method for predicting the hydrogen gas required for the pressurized transfer of liquid hydrogen. Section III recounts the known facts relating to the safety and reliability of hydrogen gas cylinders as used in typical operations for the pressurized transfer of liquid hydrogen. Section IV presents the design specifications and performance characteristics of gravity-fed and boosted pressure-fed vaporizers for liquid hydrogen transfers established as a result of an integrated program of theoretical analysis and tests. Section V includes an economic comparison of systems using pumps, hydrogen vaporizers and high-pressure hydrogen gas bottles to transfer liquid hydrogen. Section VI presents the results of a further investigation of the single parting line coupling for vacuum-jacketed transfer lines originally reported in WADC TR-59-386. A modified design and its performance characteristics established from tests are included. Author
