Description: A heat exchanger is necessary to warm the gaseous nitrogen from the nitrogen dewar from 77 K to ambient temperature for use in the D-Zero Building. The original proposal would use an ambient air vaporizer, but further investigation led to the consideration and evaluation of other possibilities and a different final system. The vaporizer must be able to handle a flow rate of 1200 scfh at 30 psig on a continuous basis subject to local weather conditions. Upon consulting with a representative from Thermax Incorporated, So. Dartmouth, Massachusetts, four different heat exchanging systems were proposed. Their advantages and disadvantages are stated.
