Abstract
The two chamber system developed by SEVA-Technologies offers several chances and benefits for airbag application. These include clean gas delivery, low sensitivity of the majority of gas generating propellant together with a high gas yield and significantly reduced dimensions of the gas generator.
The major components are a small amount of hot pyrotechnic gas generating charge in the first high pressure combustion chamber connected to the majority of gas generating propellant in the second and low pressure combustion chamber.
In this contribution the thermodynamic profile and several combustion experiments are described with 4 g of an extruded double base propellant in the first and 16 g of ammonium nitrate propellant mixture in the 2nd combustion chamber. The gas yield of this system depends on the overall heat of explosion and therefore on its oxygen balance.
Good conditions with respect to pressure response, gas yield, CO and NOx evolution are obtained with an intimate particulate or pelletized mixture of ammoniumnitrate and a reactive organic component which may act as a fuel and NOx scavenger. Further enhancement of the gas yield and improved CO or NOx conversion can be performed by using small amounts of combustion catalyst. Overall this system generates a higher gas yield and significantly less amounts of particles in the combustion gases than any conventional airbag propellant.
