Abstract:

A single module of the PM-1 four-module condensing system was tested over an ambient temperature range of 70 to -65 F at the Climatic Laboratory of the 3208th Test Group at Eglin Air Force Base during the period between January 3, 1961 and March 10, 1961. All modes of normal operation, transportation and handling, as well as some emergency conditions, were imposed on this condenser section. The unit was shown to have an adequate margin of safety in all of its design parameters. The total power requirement for the design heat load, when extrapolated to 6500 ft elevation was 10 less than predicted. Author
