Abstract:

The results of the analytical test and design efforts of an 8-month liquid hydrogen micropump feasibility study program are presented. A generalized analytical study was performed to evaluate the types of pumps which might be applicable to pump two-phase hydrogen at 2 to 12 lbhr. Based on the results of this study, a singleplunger, positive displacement pump was selected as the type best suited to meet the design requirements. Detailed analyses and design studies of piston pumps were performed. The selected piston pump was designed, and a performance analysis was completed. Author
