A pilot plant is built for investigating performance characteristics of a steam lift device at 77.4–80 K using liquid nitrogen. Heat inflows are calculated and their effect on the performance of machineless pump is studied. The experimental investigations have revealed the flow characteristics of the steam lift device for pressure pipes of 10 and 16 mm inner diameters and the results obtained are summarized.
