Abstract:

The technical and economical feasibility of a pilot rocket scrubber was evaluated based on 23 tests of liquid and solid rocket motors with a thrust of 5,000 pounds. The initial test, using liquid fluorine and gaseous hydrogen, resulted in extensive damage to the test system. After switching to storable liquid propellants, 18 tests were conducted to characterize the scrubber system. The main concern of the Air Force was the results from scrubbing four solid rocket motors. This report summarizes the history, and describes the installation, testing, evaluation, and costs for operating the pilot rocket scrubber.
