The process of production of liquefied methane - the component of rocket propellant
PJSC "Cryogenmash" Balashikha, Moscow region, 143907, Russian Federation
The use of new fuel components, such as LNG or liquefied methane, in rocket-space, aviation and other special-purpose engineering is promising. On the basis of these fuel components it is possible to provide a number of technical and tactical parameters of aircrafts, which are not achievable when using standard fuels.
Considered were the cryogenic systems developed by PJSC "Cryogenmash" for natural gas liquefaction with liquid methane recovery by the method of low-temperature condensation, stage separation and rectification. The second method allows to reduce the content of not only low boiling but also high boiling liquids in methane liquefied.
Key words: cryogenic engineering / liquefied methane / liquefier / stage separation / rectification / rectification column
