Conference paper
Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 2)


The design and development of an expander turbine unit was undertaken with particular emphasis on adaptability, simplicity and reliability. A description of the unit and some operational experience will be presented. The results of a simplified and generalized part load analysis of turbine-compressor units will be compared to constant speed operation.
