Abstract : The patent discloses an apparatus for transferring heat from a heat load to a solid cryogen having the solid cryogen in an insulated container. The solid cryogen has a plurality of gas passages therethrough. A gas circulator supplies sublimed gas from the passages in the solid cryogen to heat exchanger adjacent the heat load. A portion of the return gas is supplied to a heat exchanger for the gas circulator motor. The flow in the motor heat exchanger is controlled by the pressure of the gas in the return conduit from the load heat exchanger to the solid cryogen chamber and a pressure control valve connected in the output of the motor heat exchanger.
