Nitrogen tetroxide containing 3 percent FNO2 by weight, inhibited nitrogen tetroxide, INTO was fired in a 1000-lb-thrust engine with hydrazine, MHF-3 and Aerozine-50. The INTO performed essentially the same as neat NTO, as predicted by the theoretical performance computer program. Two 50-gallon batches of INTO were field-prepared. Severe tank corrosion and iron fluoride precipitation occurred, resulting in clogged feed lines and flowmeters.
