ASSEMBLY - Continued
Liquid nitrogen is extremely cold, having a temperature of -320°F (-195°C). Wear protective
gloves that will not absorb liquid nitrogen. Excess liquid nitrogen must be disposed of promptly
since liquid nitrogen will condense oxygen from the atmosphere. The mixture of liquid nitrogen
and liquid oxygen is a powerful oxidizer and may react violently with easily oxidizable
substances. Failure to follow this warning may cause injury or death to personnel.
Cool bushings to -320°F (-195°C) by submerging bushings in liquid nitrogen.
Submerge two bushings (Figure 21, Item 1) in liquid nitrogen to cool them.
