Abstract : The patent relates to a portable underwater hydrazine feed system for feeding hydrazine to a hydrazine decomposition reactor. The gas from the reactor may be used to drive a power tool, a swimmer propulsion device or the like with the exhaust gas from the driven device being employed to drive a gas operated differential area piston pump. The gas operated pump forces water into a chamber containing hydrazine. The hydrazine is isolated from the water by a slidable piston or expandable bellows and is displaced into the hydrazine decomposition reactor by the water.
