The engine's heat exchanger.

Turbine exhaust gases enter the heat exchanger. LOX is run through coils inside the heat exchanger shell, converting it to gaseous oxygen (GOX) to pressurize the LOX containers.

For additional information on the LOX pressurization system, see my S-I LOX Pressurization System page.
