Organization: NASA
Publication Date: 22 August 1994
Status: active
Page Count: 43
scope:

This Standard establishes engineering principles for materials, processes, methods, practices, and designs to be applied to cryogenic ground support equipment (GSE) intended for installation and use at the John F. Kennedy Space Center (KSC). This standard is based primarily on the design experience gained during the Apollo and Shuttle programs by the Engineering Development Directorate (DE). The document will be updated as needed to reflect new designs and items not presently covered. This standard does not specially apply to cryogenic commodity equipment (mobile and portable support equipment).

Application. - This standard applies to GSE used for handling liquid oxygen (LO2), liquid hydrogen (LH2), liquid nitrogen (LN2), and their respective vent gases. Liquid helium, liquid methane, and other cryogenic fluids are not specifically addressed in this document at this writing.

General. - All provisions and requirements of KSC-DE-512-SM shall be followed in the design of new equipment and in the modification of equipment designed in accordance with this standard. In the event of a conflict with the requirements of KSC-DE-512-SM, or any lower-level document, this standard shall take precedence.

intended Use:

This document is intended to be used in the establishment of uniform engineering practices and methods and to ensure the inclusion of essential requirements in the design of cryogenic equipment... View More
