To produce a high pressure stream of fluid, such as propellant, the fluid is transfered from a low pressure reservoir into a plurality of intermediate storage tanks, in which the fluid is pressurized. The fluid is drained from the storage tanks to an outlet in sequence. While one pressurized storage tank in a three pressurized tank system is being drained, the most recently drained one of the storage tanks is being vented, and still another of the storage tanks is being filled or replenished with fluid, as the case may be, from the low pressure reservior...
[ What is claimed is:] [19.]19. A method for transferring fluid from a low pressure reservoir to an outlet at high pressure in a continuous stream, the method comprising the steps of:confining fluid at high pressure in each of a plurality of storage tanks;draining fluid from each of the plurality of storage tanks in sequential order to thereby supply a continuous stream of fluid at high pressure to the outlet; andsupplying fluid from the low pressure reservoir to each of the drained storage tanks in sequential order to fill the respective tanks with the ...
