A method and apparatus 10 for self-regulating the mass flow rate of a fluid comprises a housing 12 defining an upper chamber 14 and a lower chamber 16, a sealed and pressurized bellows 30 contained within the upper chamber 14, spring bias means 58 contained within the lower chamber 16 and a poppet 32 with a poppet head 40 for defining a fluid passageway 44. Supply fluid flows through inlet 56, lower chamber 16, fluid passageway 44 and into upper chamber 14. Once in upper chamber 14 the fluid is in heat exchange communication with a fluid in sealed bellow...
In a bi-propellant pressure fed rocket engine feed system having a fuel propellant and an oxidizer propellant, each stored in a respective storage tank under high pressure and low temperature for maximizing the propellant densities, a method for maintaining a substantially constant mass flow rate of each propellant fluid into a rocket combustor during the process of propellant consumption, comprising: flowing each propellant fluid from its storage tank through a conventional pressure regulator, the propellant fluid being discharged from each said convent...
