Looking for Help/info on reproducing the Aerotech Black Powder Pellet, for the Hybrids that they once produced !
Given that description it might have been some type of APCP propellant.I've never seen one, but by the below...it's flexable.
Inspect the Pyrovalve™ element (short, solid black pellet, 5/8" O.D X
1/4" thick) for chips, cracks or other defects. Check the structural
integrity of the Pyrovalve™ element by grasping with the thumb and
forefingers of both hands and flexing the element back and forth with
Whether or not it goes through, detailed photos of the individual components would be pretty greatYes.
I've got a friend who has a system he is interested in selling to me. If we make a deal I'll measure and photograph the pyrovalve and post them here. It'll be awhile, maybe March.
Now we know. Reading it made me think it was suppose to flex.. 2-4 http://www.aerotech-rocketry.com/cu...ructions/RMS-Hybrid/igniter_parts_in_1-96.pdfIf it does flex then it is defective. It was a compressed puck of BP.
I have seen them, used them, and still have a few.
I want to thank all that replied !
What I was/am looking for, is someone who has actually reproduced these, whether with epoxy or otherwise.
