Title (EN) STATION AND METHOD FOR REFILLING PRESSURISED GAS TANKS
(FR) STATION ET PROCEDE DE REMPLISSAGE DE RESERVOIR(S) DE GAZ SOUS PRESSION
Abstract:
(EN) A station and method for refilling a tank or tanks with pressurised gas, in particular hydrogen, comprising a container (1) of liquefied fluid, a filling line (2) comprising an upstream end connected to the container (1) of liquefied gas and a downstream end intended to be connected to a tank (6) to be filled, the filling line (2) comprising, arranged in series, a vaporiser (3), a main compressor (4) and a heat exchanger (5) for cooling the compressed fluid downstream of the main compressor (4) before its transfer into a tank (6) to be filled, the station being characterised in that it comprises a cooling circuit (7, 8) comprising a transfer line (7) having an upstream end connected to the output of the vaporiser (3) and a downstream end connected to the heat exchanger (5), the transfer line (7) being configured to transfer the fluid leaving the vaporiser (3) into the heat exchanger (5) and performing a heat exchange between this vaporised fluid and the compressed gas which is transferred into the tank (6) to be filled.
(FR) Station et procédé de remplissage de réservoir(s) de gaz sous pression, notamment d'hydrogène, comprenant une réserve (1) de fluide liquéfié, une conduite (2) de remplissage comprenant une extrémité amont reliée à la réserve (1) de fluide liquéfié et une extrémité aval destinée être reliée à un réservoir (6) à remplir, la conduite (2) de remplissage comprenant, disposés en série, un vaporiseur (3), un compresseur (4) principal et un échangeur (5) de chaleur de refroidissement du fluide comprimé en aval du compresseur (4) principal avant son transfert dans un réservoir (6) à remplir, la station étant caractérisée en ce qu'elle comprend un circuit (7, 8) de refroidissement comportant une conduite (7) de transfert ayantune extrémité amont reliée à la sortie du vaporiseur (3) et une extrémité aval reliée à l'échangeur (5) de chaleur, la conduite (7) de transfert étant configurée pour transférer du fluide sortant du vaporiseur (3) dans l'échangeur (5) de chaleuret réaliser un échange de chaleur entre ce fluide vaporisé et le gaz comprimé qui est transféré dans le réservoir (6) à remplir.
