Vacuum Insulated Tanks for Pressurised LNG
- 712 Downloads
The rise of LNG as a green fuel, in the face of global warming, is leading to the use of relatively small, vacuum insulated VI tanks for 1–100 m3 capacity of pressurised LNG. Such tanks have been widely used over many years for the supply of nitrogen, oxygen and argon as cryogenic liquids. They are called ‘zero-boil-off Liquid Gas Cylinders’, and they have never been a problem for unstable evaporation of the cryogenic liquid contents. This chapter describes how this handling behaviour also applies to LNG.
