Inert Gas Generating System for Liquefied Natural Gas Carriers

  • G. M. Meyer
Part of the Advances in Cryogenic Engineering book series (ACRE, volume 21)


Natural gas is transported in specially designed tankers in the liquefied state at atmospheric pressure at a temperature of 110 K. Presently the largest series of these liquefied natural gas carriers under construction have a cargo capacity of 125,000 m3. These ships must be inerted prior to the first loading and before and after tank repairs or docking.
