Solid Propellant Synthesis Lab - ZL6

Students at computerThe Solid Propellant Synthesis Lab (ZL-6) houses infrastructure for mixing and curing small batches of solid propellants. Both dual planetary and resonant acoustic mixers are available as well as curing ovens and areas for propellant casting. Composite propellant mixes of the order of one pint (roughly one kilogram) can be accomplished in this facility with remote operation during the actual mixing operation.
