The paper describes the development of hydrogen, oxygen, LNG (tank cars, container cars) stationary devices based on the existing constructions. The investigation results of liquid hydrogen losses on experimental cryogenic storage and transport tanks with different thermal insulation (multilayer-vacuum, powder-vacuum, screen-vacuum (with a nitrogen screen of different designs)) are presented.
The paper presents the results of research on obtaining and maintaining pressure in the tank of a gasification plant with hydrogen supercritical parameters for long-term product delivery to the customer at variable or constant flowrate, both using an external source of hydrogen and a part of the hydrogen supplied to the consumer as a heat carrier.
The paper presents a method and equipment of refueling the Orbiter fuel tanks with high-purity hydrogen for variable hydrogen mass and different number of tanks.
Key words: tank car / tank container / storage tank / thermal insulation of the tank / gasifier of liquid hydrogen / supercritical parameters of cryogenic liquid / power supply system of the orbiter
