Abstract:

The MLU-2C bomb ejection cartridge is used in a dual bomb release mechanism. The pair of cartridges are arranged so that the functioning of either cartridge will release the bomb. Tests were conducted to evaluate the serviceability of a representative sample from 4 lots of MLU-2C cartridges. Tests were conducted for no-fire sensitivity and 50 fire current Bruceton Test Method on Air Force inventory. Tests were also conducted to determine the effects on the E77 blasting cap bridge wire after being subjected to the sensitivity test. Test data from the representative samples indicated that the serviceability of the 4 lots was excellent and fulfilled the specification requirement of a no-fire sensitivity test of 2 amp for 5 minutes.
