The LN2 Automated Dispensing System (LADS) will provide semi-automatic dispensing
of liquid nitrogen into portable dewars owned by individual research groups. The
system will track product usage to individual users and generate data output suitable
Preconditions to System Use:
Each group, each user, and each dewar is assigned a unique identification number
within the system. The full weight of each dewar is recorded within the system.
Principal of Operation:
The dewar is placed on the platform scale establishing a starting weight for the
fill session. The automated supply valve opens to allow liquid to enter the dewar
and remains open until the weight equals the assigned full weight value for the dewar.
