Abstract : The patent describes a vapor pressure regulator of the type which allows the boiloff helium gas from the surface of liquid helium disposed in a dewar to be thermally processed to increase the vapor pressure thereof to such a controlled extent that it can be vented into an ambient environmental medium that has a higher pressure than the vapor pressure of the helium in said dewar, without having a deleterious affect on the liquid helium in said dewar.
