Abstract:

RDX CRYSTALS OF 100-150 MICROMETER SIZE EXHIBIT INTRAGRANULAR CAVITIES THAT DERIVE FROM THE CYCLOHEXANONE PRECIPITATION PROCESS AND THAT MAY AFFECT THE SENSITIVITY OF EXPLOSIVE FORMULATIONS CONTAINING RDX. DEVELOPMENT ON A NEW PROCESS USING SUPERCRITICAL FLUIDS IS DESCRIBED. THE PROCESS IS BASED UPON THE ABILITY OF A SUPERCRITICAL FLUID TO DISSOLVE IN AN ORGANIC LIQUID SOLUTION OF SOLID AND CAUSE PRECIPITATION OF THE SOLID. THE OBJECTIVES OF THE PROGRAM ARE: 1. DETERMINE THE RANGE OF PARAMETERS THAT WILL RESULT IN THE FORMATION OF 100-150 MICROMETER RDX FREE OF INTRAGRANULAR CAVITIES. 2. PRODUCE 1-2 KGS OF RDX CRYSTALS. 3. PREPARE A FLOW CHART AND CARRY OUT A PRELIMINARY ECONOMIC ASSESSMENT OF THE SUPERCRITICAL FLUID NUCLEATING PROCESS.
