Injection (INJ)

The purpose of the injection subsystem is to diffuse and atomize the oxidizer flow into the combustion chamber so it can be dissociated and combust. It must do this while withstanding the high pressure and low temperature from the oxidizer tank and high pressure and high temperature in the combustion chamber.

The three main components involved are the injector end cap, injector housing, and the injector plate. The end cap and housing are machined from aluminum stock whereas the injector plate is machined from titanium.
