Abstract:

A device for controlling the uniformity of the jet flame in an operating engine is described. It consists of a tube-periscope and a girder holding it at the rear of the nacelle. A lateral cut is made at the end of a 46 x 50 x 870 mm steel pipe opposite which a mirror is placed at a 45 degree angle. To protect it from the jet stream, the cut is enclosed in glass. The control, while the jet sprayers of the engine operate, is accomplished at a range of 5,000 to 8,000 rpm. The irregular flame of defective jet sprayers stands out sharply among the shining points of the regularly operating jet sprays. Author
