Abstract

The Refrigerated Transport Dewar consists primarily of a nitrogen cooled dewar with a low pressure closed cycle helium refrigerator, mounted on a trailer and in which 2000-liters of liquid hydrogen can be stored for an indefinite period of time, or transported over long distances on a no-loss basis. The Refrigerated Transport Dewar, or RTD as it is called, was designed by Arthur D. Little, Inc. and a number fabricated and operated by Cambridge Corporation. Large quantities of liquid hydrogen have been handled and transported in this equipment.
