  • Patent number: 7481074
    Abstract: A process and apparatus for the on-site delivery of a gas having improved purity to from a container filled with liquid under pressure and integrated with a purifier. In the process a portion of the liquid is converted to vapor by reducing the pressure in the container and expanding the thus formed vapor through a pressure reducer generating refrigeration. The cooled vapor is warmed against incoming vapor prior to exit from the purifier.

  • Patent number: 6637469
    Abstract: A container for holding a solid, liquid and/or gaseous phase product therein and for use within a transportable or stationary support structure. The container maximizes the compressed product volume contained therein and prevents liquid and/or contaminant entrainment during gaseous product delivery from liquid phase product. The system allows for product withdraw when the level is above the delivery valves using, at a minimum, two delivery legs linked by a compartment or housing that connects the delivery point and a container head space via a removable manway.
