Abstract:

In a cooperative effort involving the Army Research Laboratory ARL, the Naval Surface Warfare Center NSWC, and Applied Analytical, Inc., the scale-up of a process to separate the components of Composition B high explosive using a supercritical fluid SF extraction process was investigated. New solubility data for TNT and wax in SF C02 was measured as part of this study. Batch SF extraction runs were carried out up to the 100-gram level, with results substantially the same as in the previous laboratory-scale process.
