Notes from Users of Our Graphite

We are using this material for the nozzle throat in our own sub-orbital vehicle SORAC and will let you know how it does in extremely long burns. (it does really well - ed.)

Professor Terry Mcreary of Kentucky State and author of "Experimental Composite Propellants" says this about our 1.5" tapered rod:

"I've ordered several items from Aerocon in the past, notably graphite. For those into (whisper it) motor construction, six bucks worth of surplus graphite rod makes about a dozen nozzles, each of which is reuseable. I've used some nozzles a dozen times without noticeable erosion from low-metals propellant."

Looking forward to doing more business with Aerocon,

Thanks P'rfesser!

Here's what Steve Decker thinks about them:

Hi Bob,

I just wanted to let you know that I'm having fun machining up the graphite electrodes I recently bought from you. I'm turning them down to make 29mm Kosdon nozzles and I'll probably be able to get 6 or 7 nozzles from each electrode.

Graphite machining IS messy, but I've been using a "Sand & Kleen" vacuum system, which keeps the mess to a minimum.

Anyway, on my Homier lathe, I just chuck the short threaded end and let the tapered end rest inside the hole of the tailstock. This eliminated the need for a center or steady rest as I true the cylinder.

Works great!

Thanks for offering these electrodes.

Best Regards,
Steve Decker

 

Also a great material for Stirling Hot Air Engines
