Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0538857A1] An installation and a process for the low temperature fractionation of air are described. A rectification column (2) is fed with fractionation air via an air pipe (3). It is provided with a nitrogen pipe (14) for the withdrawal of a nitrogen fraction and an oxygen pipe (10) for the withdrawal of an oxygen fraction and a liquid tank (1) for the storage of liquid nitrogen or oxygen, which is enclosed by a vacuum vessel (5). The liquid tank (1) is connected via a first feed pipe (11) to the upper region of the rectification column (2). According to the invention, the liquid tank (1) and the rectification column (2) are arranged in the interior of a shared vacuum vessel (5). <IMAGE>
