Evaporating Cryogenic Fluids by Direct Contacting Normal Temperature Fluids


Article Preview

In recent years in Japan, the demand of cryogenic fluids like a LH2, LNG is increasing because of the advance of fuel cell device technology, hydrogen of engine, and stream of consciousness for environmental agreement. On the other hand, as for fisheries as well, the use of a source of energy that environment load is small has been being a pressing need. We paid attention to the effective use of cold heat of the liquid fuel which is a cryogenic fluid. That method is to use a cold heat which an cryogenic fluid has, without a heat exchanger. The mixture of the extreme low temperature fluid and the normal temperature fluid becomes the cause which causes pressure vessel and piping system crush due to explosive boiling and rapid freezing. Therefore, we carried out the experiments related to promotion of evaporating cryogenic fluids, in the contact directly of the room temperature fluids and cryogenic fluids.
