P15681: Test Chamber Calibration Fluid Exhaust System
/public/

Home

Project Summary Project Information

For the general outline and initial documentation please read the Project Readiness Package.

All nozzles produced for commercial aircraft must undergo a flow test to assure that requirements are met for spray angle. This test uses a flow medium known as Stoddard Solvent or MIL-PRF-7024F Type II. This is an expensive fluid which also has an offensive odor. The current exhaust system for the test chamber is ineffective at both containing the odor of the fluid and recovering the test fluid for reuse.

The goals of this project are to design and create a fully operational calibration fluid exhaust system for use with the GE90 nozzle and to deliver a documentation package for application of this system to additional chambers. This system will effectively contain and reclaim the fluid without a significant addition to process cycle time while reducing safety incidents. It must be adaptable to the current chambers without interfering with nozzle testing.
