Atomenergomash Developed Pumping Equipment for Space Industry
JSC “OKBM Afrikantov” (included in the Engineering Division of Rosatom – Atomenergomash) has successfully completed the first stage of interdepartmental tests of the prototype of the waterproof electric pump LEG 300/135 for filling complex of carrier rocket “Proton-M”. This is the first experience of OKBM to build equipment for the aerospace industry.
The electric pump is designed for use in existing refueling units as part of the current space-rocket complex and provides the existing technology of refueling of carrier rocket tanks.
According to the chief designer of centrifugal machines and fixtures of JSC “OKBM Afrikantov” Sergey Babushkin, the design of the electric pump maximally uses the technical solutions, used in the construction of waterproof prototypes tested during prolonged operation at various purposes.
