Experience over the last four years with a fairly large helium liquéfier led to the belief that it would be possible to reduce the cost per liter of liquefying helium and hydrogen to a figure only slightly greater than the cost of liquefying air, A heavy-duty machine which would run for years with only nominal maintenance charges would be required. High efficiency in the use of manpower and electrical energy would also be necessary.
