LIQUEFIED GASES ARE TRANSFERRED FROM TANKERS
Liquefied gases are transferred from tankers by immersing a pipe in the tank under negative pressure to lift a mixture of gas and liquid, separating the mixture by gravity, reliquefying the gas with a compressor, and transferring the liquid into a receiving tank through a pipe having a liquid column, the weight of which resists the negative pressure and transfers the liquefied gas through an inverted Y-shaped siphon into the receiving tank.
