This Kerosene is then burnt with air received from the compressor, sending hot gas downstream to the turbine.
- What does it look like?
- What makes it special?
- The fuel burns inside the combustion chamber at over 2000°C which about half the temperature of the sun
- The chamber is made from material which has a melting point of just 1300°C
- The Ceramic coating protecting the chamber walls from this temperature is only a quarter of a millimetre thick
