An alternative method of kerosene dehydration is proposed, which is based on application of cyclic technology of supersaturation decrease using dry nitrogen. A comparison of nitrogen and time specific consumption in dehydration operations is done and recommendations are given for their use in the cosmodromes' launch complexes fuel storage and preparation facilities.
