ISRO developing liquid oxygen kerosene driven semi-cryogenic engine, first ignition test successful

The successful ignition test of the semi-cryo pre-burner is a major achievement in the development of semi-cryogenic propulsion systems. According to ISRO, semi-cryogenic engine ignition start was done using a fuel ampule. A combination of triethyl aluminide and triethyl boron was used in this. It was used for the first time in 2000 Kilonewton Semi-Cryogenic in ISRO. The ignition process is important in the development of liquid rocket engine systems.

ISRO developing liquid oxygen kerosene driven semi-cryogenic engine, first ignition test successful

A semi-cryogenic engine is being developed by ISRO. Its goal is to enable Launch Vehicle Mark-3 (LVM3) to carry a heavier payload. The engine will have a thrust of 2,000 kilonewtons and run on a combination of kerosene and liquid oxygen (LOX). According to a statement released by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) on Monday, the engine's semi-cryo pre-burner underwent its first ignition test at the Semi Cryo Integrated Engine Test Centre (SIET) at the ISRO Propulsion Complex in Mahendragiri on May 2. The test was successfully completed.
