Abstract:

A stainless steel vapor scrubber was added to the test facility for scrubbing N2H4 vapors. Other minor modifications consisted of the ad ition of gaseous N purge lines, reloca ion of filters, and minor plumbing changes for adapting specific test specimens to the test systems. Evaluation su maries, data, and test procedures are presented in detail for the pre-qualification of Titan II propellant transfer system components. These components include 1 heat exchangers, 2 canned pumps, 3 piston-operated angle globe valves, 4 manually-operated globe valves, 5 manually-operated ball or plug valves, 6 check valves, 7 flexible hoses, 8 filters, 9 control valves regulators, 10 relief valves, 11 liquid sensors, 12 pressure gages, and 13 differential pressure instruments. Smear, chemical compatibility, and mechanical tests were performed on 13 lubricants to determine their suitability for use with storable propellants. Additional safety information, practices, and procedures acquired during the pre-qualification test program are presented to amplify the safety practices outlined in AFBMDTN-61-32 AD-255 145.
