High Test Peroxide High Sealing Conical Seal, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

High Test Peroxide High Sealing Conical Seal, Phase I
High Test Peroxide (HTP) Highly Compatible High Sealing Conical Seals are necessary for ground test operations and space based applications. Current conical seals are all made from relatively incompatible materials and the most compatible materials have limitations: stainless steel seals are hard to seat, especially at large sizes and are still only acceptable for short term exposure at best, whereas aluminum seals corrode quickly when exposed to HTP and other metals such as stainless steel. The other common materials for conical seals, copper and nickel, are unsuited for HTP applications. A highly compatible conical seal is non-existent, and the best seal available is stainless steel which is at best Class 2 and difficult to seal. High compatible conical seals will permit long term storage HTP systems to be created and will improve operations which are currently using short term HTP systems. More »
