Abstract : Theoretical and experimental studies were made to determine the feasibility of using a variable demand liquid-propellant gas generator for pressurization of propellant tanks. Operating principles and test results of two self-regulating variable-demand gas generators are presented. Red fuming nitric acid was successfully expelled by direct pressurization from a propellant tank at variable flow rates while maintaining a constant tank pressure. The results showed that a variable-demand liquid-bipropellant gas generator is feasible for a prepacked pressurization system.
