The Development of the Glass Ceramic Regenerator for the Rover 2S/150R Engine 660361

A glass ceramic regenerative heat exchanger has been successfully applied to a small basic gas turbine of simple layout. This development has given encouragement for further application of high-temperature ceramics to small gas turbine designs. As a result, brief information is given on one form of advanced design of small gas turbine incorporating the wider use of high-temperature ceramics.
The basic Rover engine involved in the development of the ceramic regenerator was originally conceived with steel recuperative heat exchangers and has been in operation with these for many years. The relative merits of the two main types of heat exchangers are given as well as an outline of the significant development aspects in applying glass ceramic regenerators to Rover 2S/150R engines.
