    The Blue Flame rocket-powered vehicle achieved the world land speed record of mph (1, km/h) on Octo , using a combination of high-test peroxide and liquified natural gas (LNG), pressurized by helium gas. You'll find here some stuff related to rocket propulsion using hydrogen peroxide (H2O2).For the newcomers, hydrogen peroxide is a colourless, dense ( at 85%), corrosive liquid, storable at ambient temperature/pressure, that can be used as oxidizer or monopropellant in rocket engines.

    A gallon of high test hydrogen peroxide can weigh up to 11 pounds. It is a particularly dense liquid, and it is good for rocket vehicles. When someone handles hydrogen peroxide, he or she should use eye protection and rubber gloves to assure safety. Precautions to take with hydrogen peroxide rocketsFile Size: KB.   John Clark’s book “Ignition — An Informal History of Liquid Rocket Propulsion” devotes an entire chapter to hydrogen perox and has two problems with it. First, the freezing point is high — about °F (°C).

      In , Kitty O'Neil drove a hydrogen peroxide-powered rocket dragster for a record time interval ( s) and final speed ( km/h) on a m-long Mojave Desert track.

Rocket powered racing vehicles using hydrogen peroxide of 90 percent strength by B. J Humphreys Download PDF EPUB FB2

Way back inI co-authored a book on the subject of "Rocket Powered Racing Vehicles Using 90% Strength Hydrogen Peroxide" with a wonderful gentleman, Jim Humpheys. Jim, who passed away several years ago, suffered from muscular dystrophy most of his adult life.

He was always a rocket nut and didn't let the disease slow him down. Back in the seventies and early eighties I bought my 90% Hydrogen Peroxide from FMC. It was shipped to us in 24 Gallon double lined aluminum barrels. When I first started buying it, the price was $ a barrel.

As more and more Rocket Cars were being built. Natural High, a Rocket-Powered Funny Car, is one of the safest, most dependable vehicles ever to traverse the Quarter Mile.

The system used in Natural High is a true liquid monopropellant engine using 90 percent hydrogen peroxide for fuel. This engine, with no moving parts, generates 5, lbs of thrust equivalent to 10, horsepower and. The system is designed to use pressurized percent rocket-grade hydrogen peroxide (H 2 O 2), which has the same chemical makeup as the 3-percent peroxide that you find in drugstores, but in a much higher concentration.

Rather than the peroxide actually burning to provide propulsion, it’s subjected to a process called decomposition, which involves the fuel passing over silver-plated. Rocket Powered Racing Vehicles using Hydrogen Peroxide of 90 Percent strength () SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) Future Transportation Conference: People Pods - Miniature Magnetic Levitation Vehicles for Personal Non-Stop Transportation (June ).

Recent Engineering consulting. The hydrogen peroxide has to be extremely concentrated for it to work -- around 90 percent, compared to drug store hydrogen peroxide that is sold at a concentration of 3 percent.

If you have a percent concentration like that, hydrogen peroxide makes a great rocket propellant. Hydrogen peroxide's chemical formula is H 2 O 2.

Yes, hydrogen peroxide can be used as rocket fuel, and in fact has been the propellant of choice for the Russian space program for decades.

This doesn't mean that the key to everyone's own private rocket company is currently sitting in the medicine cabinet. The form used for rocket fuel is at least a 90% concentration, whereas the disinfectant in a medicine cabinet has been diluted to around. H2O2 refers to hydrogen peroxyde, if used as fuel then it is a 75% to 90% high concentration hydrogen peroxyde solution as fuel or fuel&oxydant.

Try to find some historic information first about hydrogen peroxyde rockets in the past, then proceed to modern rockets. As a direct consequence of the renewed interest in the use of hydrogen peroxide shown by the rocket propulsion community, Alta S.p.A. (Italy) and DELTACAT Ltd.

(United Kingdom) are carrying out a joint activity for the development of hydrogen peroxide monopropellant thrusters based on the use of advanced catalytic beds.

This. The vehicle was filled with 42 pounds of % Hydrogen Peroxide (the Peroxide had decayed from % after nearly one year of storage) that was heated to degrees Fahrenheit at the beginning of fueling (Figure 10) to assure a smooth start up despite a “cold” catalyst bed.

Hydrogen peroxide has also been used to fuel the U. experimental X rocket plane, a German V-2 rocket and some U. satellites. NASA has also been testing hydrogen peroxide engines to be used for more environmentally conscious take-offs.

Hydrogen Peroxide or H2O2 contains two atoms of hydrogen and two atoms of oxygen. Keywords: Hydrogen peroxide propulsion, Monopropellant Rocket 1. Introduction In recent years, there has been a renewed interest in the use of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) as an oxidizer in bipropellant liquid rocket engines as well as in hybrid rocket engines [].

This renewed interest is because of the growing importance in using. The propellant can be improved by using specific sugars ie dextrose. The components can be dry or wet mixed or melted together, with care. See for a very comprehensive primer on this propellant and a very good education on rocketry.

It was the first time since the s that the words hydrogen peroxide rocket were on the tongues of drag racing fans in North America. Teboul and others have been plying the rocket trade across the pond for years, but when accessibility to high grade and pure hydrogen peroxide for reasonable prices dried up here, so did the touring rocket cars.

Copenhagen Suborbitals has begun the production of homemade rocket grade 90% hydrogen peroxide for turbo pump experiments.

Turbo pump tests were performed today with success running at app rpm as a start. Rocket Engine using Hydrogen Peroxide The N Liquid Rocket Motor (LRM) is a small rocket engine for apogee orbit injection of geo-stationery satellites and for trajectory and orbital manoeuvres on high orbital altitudes.

The Hydrogen Pereoxide/Ethanol-propellant engine – Apogee Orbital Manoeuvring Propulsion, AOMP - uses the storable. A rocket car is a land rocket vehicle powered by a rocket engine. A rocket dragster is a rocket car used for competing in drag racing, and this type holds the unofficial world record for the 1/4 mile.

Rocket cars are capable of very high speeds, and at one time held the land speed record. Rocket cars differ from jet-powered cars in that they carry both fuel and oxidizer on board, eliminating the need for an.

It sees use in the production process of cheese, whey-containing products, and eggs. 35% is also common in products like fruit juices and milk stored in aseptic packages. 35% is the only grade of hydrogen peroxide you can use internally.

90% grade hydrogen peroxide is used in rocket fuel as an oxygen source. Is Hydrogen Peroxide Flammable. 1 gallon of 3% ~= 12 oz of 30% ~= $12 1 gallon of 30% (which is about the smallest you can get) ~= $ So if you want a gallon of 30% your choice is clear.

I remember many years ago reading about a drag car which was powered entirely by the decomposition of high-test hydrogen peroxide. There was no actual fuel. Instead, the hydrogen peroxide was forced through a platinum sponge into a nozzle, whereupon it decomposed into steam and oxygen, plus a lot of heat.A rocket engine of a radial screen catalyst design, rather than the traditional packed disk design, was installed with the ability to produce the equivalent of 8, horsepower at about psia inlet pressure with 90% concentration by weight hydrogen peroxide.You can write a book review and share your experiences.
