Running-Film Vaporizer for LNG
Advances in welding technology and steel fabrication techniques have permitted the development of a new concept in cryogenic vaporizers—the running-film plate vaporizer. Although similar in heat transfer philosophy to the open rack tubular exchanger in use at several baseload liquefied natural gas (LNG) facilities, the unique fabrication method provides a new dimension in flexibility and range of application.
