boil-off

boil-off

[′bȯil‚ȯf]
(textiles)
Removal of impurities from fabric by boiling the material in a solution.
(thermodynamics)
The vaporization of a liquid, such as liquid oxygen or liquid hydrogen, as its temperature reaches its boiling point under conditions of exposure, as in the tank of a rocket being readied for launch.

As a reminder, this Mark III version allows a daily Boil-Off Rate of 0.
In addition to the LNG facilities, Qatargas operates the Jetty Boil-Off Gas facility, the Laffan Refinery (one of the largest condensate refineries in the world), and the Ras Laffan Terminal on behalf of its stakeholders.
Since they would contain volatile and often cryogenic liquids, they were painted white to reflect the hot Florida sun at Cape Kennedy, to reduce the amount of boil-off, while waiting for lift-off.
He said this MoU to establish a company for the generation of electricity from solar power is a continuation of QP's environmental commitment demonstrated by various environmental projects, such as the reduction of gas flaring and greenhouse gas emissions, and the Jetty Boil-off Gas Recovery project.
When fuel oil is used to supplement Boil-Off Gas (BOG) as a fuel for the ship's propulsion and energy systems, Eniram Engine TM will provide guidance only with this mixed fuel usage.
Qatargas' Jetty Boil-Off Gas (JBOG) recovery facility has achieved a major milestone marking its 1,000th loading with the LNG Ship, Rasheeda.
Jetty Boil-off Gas Recovery project is set to become a landmark project for Qatar, balancing industrial development with care for the environment
The contract covers basic engineering design of the process plant; BED and detailed engineering design of LNG tanks; and procurement of key equipment such as the main cryogenic heat exchanger, mixed refrigerant compressor, boil-off gas compressor, LNG in-tank pumps, cryogenic control and on-off valves.

The main disadvantage of depot designs include maintaining depots within the Lagrange point and avoiding a phenomenon called boil-off -- a condition where fuel that's not kept at cold temperatures can boil away.
It also has a nearly 30% thermal performance increase over conventional multi-layer insulation; the IMLI's increased thermal capability is critical for minimizing heat transference and boil-off of cryogenic storage systems.
