Supercritical Pressure Customer Station
Most aerospace and industrial users of gases are adequately served by the use of low-pressure liquid tankage and vaporizer systems which deliver gases such as oxygen and nitrogen at pressures up to 175 psig. Occasional demands are received for gases at pressures between 175 and 1000 psig. Two methods have been used to provide high gas pressure from liquid installations. One involves the use of a high-pressure liquid pump and vaporizer; the other uses a noncontaminating diaphragm-type gas compressor to compress the warmed gas from a vaporizer. In both methods, the compressed gas is stored in a high-pressure gas tube storage bank.
