Design and development of cryogenic pumping evaluation facility
Albero, Carl M.
MetadataShow full item record
A cryogenic pump is a cold surface employed to remove large volumes of gases from a vacuum system by condensing and freezing the gas molecules. Experimental results are presented for the cryopumping rate of carbon dioxide gas on a surface cooled by liquid nitrogen, and for nitrogen gas on a surface cooled by liquid helium. The nature of the problems encountered in the design and construction of a cryogenic pumping system are also discussed.

Dougherty, Charles E. (Monterey, California: U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, 1963);Concepts drawn from the kinetic theory of gases have been utilized to examine basic phenomena associated with cryopumping and low density flow. Relationships based on conductance have been used to examine the significance ...
