Pagination or Media Count:
The design and development of a low-pressure storage system for the storage of liquid oxygen, the conversion of the liquid to usable, gaseous state, and the controlled delivery of the gaseous oxygen under omnigravic conditions, are studied. The program was an extension of the feasibility study of a system employing an internal relief valve, and provided for, in particular, the minimization of evaporation loss of stored liquid oxygen through standby venting caused by heat leakage to the stored liquid, and the development of suitable fluid capacity gauging equipment. An account is presented of the design and development of a subcritical liquid oxygen storage and conversion system and outlines the final engineering conclusions and recommendations.
