There are requirements in the aircraft industry for high pressure, light weight, cryogenic pumps. Sundstrand-Denver, a division of the Sundstrand Machine Tool Company, is currently developing a piston type, high pressure aircraft pump for cryogenic fluids. This type of pump has proven itself in hydraulic systems as an efficient means of obtaining moderate flow rates at high pressure. Development testing to date has shown that similar performance is obtainable pumping liquid nitrogen.
