Determining the characteristics of structural materials

   1. Installation for testing structural materials in a high-temperature flow of air and nitrogen.

   The installation is based on the EDP-109/200 arc plasma heater and is intended for testing new heat-resistant materials that are being developed for use as linings of the most heat-stressed components of the designed rocket and air-jet engines, as well as for elements of thermal protection of high-speed aircraft and missiles. The installation allows you to simulate the required heating rates of the tested samples, heat their surface to temperatures above 30,000 C, and also simulate high specific heat fluxes entering the heated surface of the samples, corresponding to almost any field conditions of the materials under study. The advantage of this installation is the ability to test structural materials in the air in full-scale conditions with minimal costs.

   2. Installation for testing structural materials in toxic, oxidizing and reducing environments.

   The unit is intended for testing structural materials that are used for designing new products that use high-temperature toxic, oxidizing and reducing media. These products primarily include industrial installations used in the chemical and oil and gas industries, and for the combustion chambers of various rocket engines. The installation is created using an EDP-109/200 arc plasma heater, which can use hydrogen, air, nitrogen as plasma-forming gases, as well as their mixtures with hydrocarbons, CO, CO2 and other components.

   Samples are tested in a special reactor, which receives a plasma jet from a plasma torch, as well as the necessary toxic gas components that simulate the full-scale composition of the gas environment of the designed product.
