Heat Exchangers for Vapor-Cooled Conducting Supports of Cryostats
The design of thermally efficient supports for cryogenic vessels is approached with renewed interest in view of today’s large-scale applications of superconductivity . In large superconducting systems such as electric machines and magnetic energy storage units, the supports of the superconducting magnet must transmit considerable mechanical loads and, at the same time, provide adequate rigidity.
