Abstract:

Rocket Propellant Canisters, Model GMN-SSW, were tested using nitrogen dioxide NO2 and unsymmetrical dimethyl-hydrazine UDMH. Canisters manufactured in 1967 were compared to canisters made in 1971. Results of the study indicate that there is no statistically significant difference between the absorbing capacities of the new and old canisters for both contaminants. Indicators on the new canisters were unsatisfactory for both UDMH and NO2.
