Abstract:

The object of this program was to determine if a fluidic jet reaction valve made from asbestos phenolic would endure gases from a solid propellant gas generator for 3 seconds. A three-stage MARS II jet reaction valve fabricated from asbestos phenolic was tested on gas from a solid propellant gas generator. The gas temperature was 4000F, and its nominal pressure was 1225 psig. The valve was switched at 50 hertz for 3.25 seconds without failure. The evaluation of the test showed that asbestos phenolic performed as well as stainless steel for this particular application, and was less than one-fourth the weight of the stainless steel. Author
