Title: [abstract] A FACILITY FOR INVESTIGATING THE EFFECTS OF HIGH PRESSURE OF HYDROGEN IN SMALL ANIMALS.
Author: Imbert, G; Long, W; Morris, J; Sajonia, B; Mints, W
Abstract: The facility embodies a 150-liter pressure chamber rated at 68 atm and thermo-controlled between 25 and 35 *C. It is equipped with gas panels, gas analyzers, and an outdoor gas farm for H2-02 mixes. Animals are placed in a cage inside the pressure vessel and can be exercised with an ergometer activated through the chamber wall. To limit the fire risks, the pressure vessel is compressed with He-O2 to a depth of 9 atm; H2-O2 (containing less than 2% 0,) is used only beyond this depth. The system is housed in a special room designed in accordance with the National Fire Protection Agency recommendations and standards for hydrogen use. All electrical equipment within this room is either rated for Class I Division 2 locations, or is enclosed and purged with fresh air. The room atmosphere is monitored with H2 sensors and ventilated with explosion-proof fans. Explosion venting is provided to minimize the consequences of a pressure vessel failure. The system equipment and operating procedures have been approved for operational use by the Naval Facilities Engineering Command. (Supported by NMRDC Work Unit No. 61152N MR00001.001-1376)
