Liquid oxygen is used widely in industrial and medical fields and also in spacecraft rocket propellants. Liquid oxygen storage is less bulky and less costly than the equivalent capacity of high pressure gas oxygen storage. The freezing point of liquid oxygen in one atmosphere of pressure is −219 C (54 K). The boiling point of liquid oxygen in one atmosphere of pressure is −183 C (90 K). In this chapter, let us investigate the radiation heat transfer from a cryogenic spherical container for storing liquid oxygen. The spherical cryogenic container has a concentric outer spherical shell and facing spherical surfaces “1” and “2” are silver coated in order to minimize radiation heat losses from the liquid oxygen as shown in Figure 20-1.
