In need of books to start a cryogenic engineering department
My company is going to create a cryogenic engineering department and we need some books in order to facilitate this project. This is the kind of information we would like to obtain from the books: 1- Calculations for determining the storage facilities, such as storage tanks, pumps, compressors, etc. 2- Calculations for pipe sizing, valve … Continue reading In need of books to start a cryogenic engineering department
What does "n" stand for?
We have a picture where the various layers of a transfer line are labeled. One of the labels reads "n layers of superinsulation…". We were thinking either the "n" stands for something (but we don’t know what) or it is a typo. Any thoughts on what the "n" means?
Medical Applications of Cryogenics
Neutron Therapy Cryogenics is at the heart of nuclear accelerators. Accelerators such as Fermilab's Tevatron make neutron therapy for cancer possible. From Fermilab Today 4/20/09: Fermilab currently offers neutron therapy. But staff at Fermilab designed and built the proton accelerator used by the nation's first hospital-based treatment center to use protons against cancer cells, Loma … Continue reading Medical Applications of Cryogenics
