App Note: High-Speed Aerodynamic Test
An engineer at ACME Airplane Behemoth Co. was in a quandary. He needed a device to control high pressure (>500 PSI) in a high-speed aerodynamic test he was setting up.
For this test he needed to pre-charge a chamber to high pressure. Then, via a rupture disk, he would quickly release the pressure to produce a high number mach flow.
He asked, “Does Alicat have a pressure controller which will control a high flow rate pressure?”
Alicat engineer, “We do not, but I do have a solution for you. Manually charge the chamber to approximately 450 PSI, and then use an Alicat PCDH-500PSIG-D pressure controller to finish filling the chamber to the exact pressure for the test.”
Problem solved. There was much rejoicing.
