Combustor Rig Facility
HSE's Combustor Rig is a
purpose-built facility designed to provide a high pressure jet
release for a range of test requirements and research. Utilising a
Rolls-Royce 'Tay' combustor can, operating with either liquid or
gaseous fuels (e.g. kerosene or methane), a combustion flame can be
generated at very high pressures and temperatures, typically up to
70 bar and 2000 K.
We have created a set of services to help you ensure
that your business is fully compliant with the
- Burn-through testing of aircraft engine shields exceeding
JAR/FAR CS25 guidance requirements.
- Pressure, temperature and heat flux measurements of combution
- Infra-red visualisation, imaging and temperature
- Engine testing under hypersonic flight conditions.
- Validation of mathematical models in the field of jet
