Measuring Cryogenic Turbopump Speed

Background An axial-flow pump, or AFP, is a common type of pump that essen­tially consists of a propeller (an axial impeller) in a pipe. Cryogenic turbopumps (CTP) are the heart of a rocket engine. With today’s generation of reusable heavy launch space vehicles, CTPs supply pressurized subcooled fuel and oxidizer fluids which are mixed and … Continue reading
