Title
(EN) SYSTEM AND METHOD FOR LIQUEFYING AND STORING A FLUID
(FR) SYSTÈME ET PROCÉDÉ DE LIQUÉFACTION ET DE STOCKAGE D'UN FLUIDE
Abstract
(EN)
A fluid is liquefied from a gaseous state to a liquid state, and the liquefied fluid is stored. In one embodiment, the fluid is oxygen. Mechanisms are employed that enhance the durability, longevity, reliability, efficiency, of a system used to liquefy the fluid.
(FR)
Selon l'invention, un fluide est liquéfié d'un état gazeux à un état liquide, et le fluide liquéfié est stocké. Dans un mode de réalisation, le fluide est de l'oxygène. On utilise des mécanismes pour améliorer la durabilité, la longévité, la fiabilité, l'efficacité d'un système utilisé pour liquéfier le fluide.
