Fuel cooling system for high-performance aircraft

Kraftstoffkuehlsystem fuer hochleistungsluftfahrzeuge


A fuel cooling system for high-performance aircraft is proposed, which uses the vaporisation of fuel to cool devices and components, especially electronic, sensitive components. The pressure of the fuel is reduced using suitable devices, and the cooling medium is cooled down by extracting the heat of vaporisation. A restrictor and an injector are used for this purpose.
