Abstract

Work on the discharge of liquid nitrogen from an uninsulated tank which is subjected to heating from the atmosphere has recently been completed. The objective of this investigation was to determine how various factors influence the mass of gas in the tank when the discharge process has been completed, and to determine how this amount of residual gas can be reduced to a minimum. This paper deals with two aspects of the investigation, namely, a study of temperature transients and boiloff rate without discharge, and secondly, the influence of the temperature of the pressurizing gas on the mass of gas in the tank when discharge is completed.
