  • Publication number: 20120159970
    Abstract: A method and an arrangement for filling a storage container, in particular a storage tank of a vehicle, having a compressed medium, in particular compressed hydrogen, wherein the medium is temporarily stored in at least one high pressure storage container and immediately before being delivered to the storage container to be filled has a temperature that is within a predetermined temperature interval. The high-pressure storage containers, in which the medium is temporarily stored, are cooled and/or heated. Thus, the medium temporarily stored in the high-pressure storage container is temporarily stored substantially at the temperature at which it is delivered to the storage container to be filled.

  • Patent number: 6237349
    Abstract: A device for increasing pressure in a storage container for cryogenic liquids comprises a housing within a storage container, the housing having at least one intake opening for liquid and, inside, a heating device for evaporating liquid. A vapor line is arranged in the upper third of the housing to remove the vapor bubbles that are produced during evaporation. The cross-section of the vapor line is large so that when the device is operated, more vapor than liquid, preferably only vapor, exhausts through the vapor line.
