Abstract : The patent relates to a system whereby an apparatus is provided to produce large quantities of gas at hypersonic speeds under conditions of extremely high stagnation pressures and temperature. Use is made of low molecular weight gases to accelerate solid or liquified gas particles to high velocities. The apparatus uses particular arrangements and configuration of nozzles, mixing devices, inertial separators and controls to make use of the physical effects and phenomena of energy transfer occurring in multicomponent flows.
