Abstract:

The Pyrotechnic Ammunitions covered in this Paper are the conventional ones and not the Pyro-devices currently extensively used in the Aero-Space Mission. The scope of discussion in this paper has been restricted to the Manufacture of one of the main constituents of the Pyrotechnic Ammunition - The Candle. The Candle is compressed from the Pyrotechnic Compositions - either Bare with proper outer lining or encompassed into a metal container with suitable inner liningcoating. The size of the candle depends upon the calibre of the Ammunition. In order that the Risk-factors and their severity are properly appreciated the various processing stages in the manufacture of the candle are shown.
