ULTRA LOW-TEMPERATURE LNG COMPRESSORS
The paper describes the operation of the world's first ultra low-temperature compressors capable of drawing LNG at minus 160 deg C, first installed in 1969. By directly compressing the boil-off gas generated in the storage tanks without any preliminary heating, the design requires a minimum of space, installation costs and energy consumption. The operation of such compressors is described, including reference to component maintenance. Order from NSFI as No. 14956.
