    Investigation of effective parameters on the performance of the helium liquefaction cycle

    , Article International Journal of Heat and Technology ; Volume 37, Issue 4 , 2019 , Pages 1009-1018 ; 03928764 (ISSN) Larijani, M. A ; Eslami, M ; Afshin, H ; Sharif University of Technology

    Abstract
    Due to its unique properties, helium has wide application in different industries and scientific fields, which has turned it into a strategic material. Helium liquefaction plants include wide temperature range from 300 k to 4.2 k, so these plants have high energy consumption. A lot of studies have done to optimize the operation of these cycles. In this research, an exergy analysis is performed for a liquid helium production plant. The optimal performance of 3 and 4 stage cycles is extracted using parametric study and the results are compared with those of Collins dual-expander cycle. The results show that by increasing the number of cooling stages, not only the compressor optimum discharge...
