Cryogenic Engineering in the Production and Distribution of Liquefied Atmospheric Gases

  • H. J. Portzer
Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 1)


The production and distribution of liquefied atmospheric gases is considered today by many to be a major industry. The most important of these gases is oxygen. In 1953, according to the Bureau of the Census, production in the United States of high purity oxygen amounted to 25 billion cubic feet. This is enough to fill a cube having a dimension of more than a half mile. “Tonnage oxygen,” made in private plants and consumed on the premises, is not included.
