STP470A: Chapter 11—Cryogenics

    Pages: 15    Published: Jan 1974


    Abstract

    Although there is some variation in the defined temperature range involved, cryogenics (k--jen-iks) usually indicates concern with temperatures in the liquid oxygen range (about 90°K or -183°C) or lower. This temperature range will be discussed primarily in this chapter. Since a triple point (of water) or ice bath reference junction often is used, additional comments and values will be given for the entire subzero (0°C) range.
