The requirements of a recently constructed large cryogenic test facility called for an intermittent supply of 100 lb/sec saturated air vapor at pressures up to 275 psig. Since a heat exchanger for such a duty (more than 30 × 106 Btu/hr) is presently not available, it became necessary to develop a new vaporizer system for this demand.
