The nucleate-boiling region is of great importance to the engineer because in this region large quantities of heat can be removed with relatively low temperature differences. This study was initiated to study the boiling behavior of carbon monoxide and to compare carbon monoxide’s nucleate-boiling behavior to the boiling behavior of other cryogenic fluids (nitrogen and argon).
