A gas generator which is structurally and functionally integrated with a fluid heat exchanger. A liquid which is to be heated, vaporized, and used as pressurized gas is introduced into the integrated apparatus where the liquid absorbs heat from the adjacent, but separated, hot gas flow from the gas generator. Unlike the prior art, this integrated gas generator/fluid heat exchanger is useable to pressurize an oxidizer tank of a liquid engine missile.
An integrated solid propellant gas generator and fluid heat exchanger, comprising: a. a housing; b. means, within said housing, for encasing a solid propellant therein, wherein this means comprises a casing surrounding said solid propellant, with said casing supported within said housing; c. means for igniting and burning said solid propellant, thereby generating a hot flow of gas, wherein this means is operably connected to, and is disposed adjacent to an opening of, said solid propellant encasing means; d. means, within said housing, for containing sai...
