Bursting test of a silicon carbide micro reactor

Abstract : This document describes and presents the results of a pneumatic bursting test of a CORNING AFR® G4 industrial silicon carbon reactor performed at INERIS in France. The reactor burst beyond 150 bar, well above its design pressure of 18 bar. The kinetic energy of fragments ejected during the bursting and the pressure effects were measured. The observed effects are below the minimum levels of significant injury for human body.
