Abstract

Shown is a preheated water supply coupled with a constant liquid level control in a heated wet-oxygen saturator, which allows a controlled mol fraction of water vapors to be available over an extended period of time. The closed reservoir system is replenished from the top when solenoid A is energized. Preheating of the water in the reservoir is accomplished by a quartz capsulated resistance coil B. The liquid level in the saturator is maintained at C by the air space above the liquid level and the capillary tube maintaining balanced pressures above the reservoir and the saturator. Utilizing the mixing gas D (high flow) to aid the venturied wet-oxygen vapor flow 1, a dual venturied mixing stem 2 (equal mixing flows) divides the water vapors into two equal parts to be delivered to two separate zones.

Preheated Water Reservoir for Wet Oxygen Saturator

Shown is a preheated water supply coupled with a constant liquid level control in a heated wet-oxygen saturator, which allows a controlled mol fraction of water vapors to be available over an extended period of time. The closed reservoir system is replenished from the top when solenoid A is energized. Preheating of the water in the reservoir is accomplished by a quartz capsulated resistance coil B. The liquid level in the saturator is maintained at C by the air space above the liquid level and the capillary tube maintaining balanced pressures above the reservoir and the saturator. Utilizing the mixing gas D (high flow) to aid the venturied wet-oxygen vapor flow 1, a dual venturied mixing stem 2 (equal mixing flows) divides the water vapors into two equal parts to be delivered to two separate zones. Solenoid E is a safety valve so that a positive pressure cannot exist in the saturator when not in operation.
