Abstract : The object of this test was to determine the fluid medium, the flow rate, and the upstream pressure required by the airborne tank pressure regulators to assure non-cyclic regulator performance when flowing into a fixed ullage of 43 cubic feet for the LO2 tank regulators and 27 cubic feet for the fuel tank regulators.
