Experimental Investigation of Staged Pumping Techniques for the Removal of Rocket Exhaust Gases from Space Simulation Chambers

Abstract

Results of an experimental investigation conducted to determine the feasibility of using titanium gettering to remove large flows of H2 gas and of combining gettering and cryopumping in a staged pumping system to remove simulated rocket exhaust gases are presented. The staged pumping system (about 8 in. in diameter and less than 30 in. long) consisted of a… (More)
