The future owner~s remit will cover - Conventional and cryogenic fluid
systems different sets of launch (type Ariane, Soyuz, Vega)- Fluid systems test benches (type BEAP)- Fluid systems of the entire payload preparation (EPCU)- Fluid systems in Guyana means of production (plant LOX / LH2, propellant factory)- Networks of transmission and distribution.
For bending tests, samples were immersed in cryogenic fluid
(nitrogen) and quickly (no longer than 5 seconds) placed on the same device that was used for bending at room temperature on the INSTRON testing machine.
Liquid nitrogen is a commonly used cryogenic fluid
, used in food freezing and preservation, plastic and rubber grinding, inerting and blanketing, heat treating atmospheres, and tire inflation.
Once upon a time Mr Freeze was dedicated scientist Dr Victor Fries, a home-loving boffin who went violently off the rails after his wife became terminally ill and he fell into his own vat of cryogenic fluid
The portable unit stores 15-liters of cryogenic fluid
in its dewars reservoir, gasifies it, and delivers 40 [ft.
This is the coldest cryogenic fluid
(-269[degrees]C/-452[degrees]F) and has a very low latent heat of vaporization of about 9 Btu/lb.
Using its state-of-the-art cryogenic fluid
and system technology, Whittaker Controls intends to bring the two technologies together using advanced materials and manufacturing capabilities, including insulation technology derived from the space shuttle program, to design, produce and market the advanced LNG nozzle as markets for LNG vehicles emerge and grow.
Possible applications include pump-fed liquid hydrogen rocket engines for upper stages, on-orbit propellant transfer operations, and other cryogenic fluid
The sensors are positioned within the interior of the dewar body around the periphery of the recess permitting the pivoting of the dewar vessel over a range of 90 degrees to the vertical, without a significant change in evaporation of the cryogenic fluid
Researchers also will explore technologies that are needed for future long duration human space exploration beyond low-Earth orbit, including improvements in the recovery of oxygen from carbon dioxide, as well as greatly increasing the capability to store and transfer cryogenic fluids
in a zero gravity environment.
The 8262/8263 Series valves come in brass and stainless steel constructions with 1/8-inch, A--inch, and 3/8-inch pipe sizes and are used to control the flow of air, water, light oil and specialty media such as cryogenic fluids
, ammonia, oxygen and liquid propane.
The Innova-Mass cryogenic version has undergone extensive testing and field validation and can be used for measuring mass flow rates of cryogenic fluids
down to -328F (-200C).
