On the basis of a cycle of average pressure, characteristic for conditions of gas-distributing stations, the scheme of natural gas liquefier with source of new type cold - the rotor wave cryogenerator is offered. With the help of a method entropy - the statistical analysis it is shown that at the reached and experimentally confirmed value of adiabatic efficiency of the rotor wave cryogenic generator of 55 % degree of thermodynamic perfection of the offered installation makes 17,1%.
