Within the framework of the use of energetic materials in military ammunition technologies which has strategic importance in the defense industry; Akana Engineering has started to operate in the energetic material field since the 2000’s. The process, which starts with R & D, design and equipment / machine production on energetic material systems, is a focused turnkey project that includes production process determination in line with the developed and defined needs, design, related production line design and the production and installation of the necessary machines.
At the point we have reached today; The field of energetic materials has also expanded and diversified as a result of the experienced design, production, quality, test and integrated logistics support teams on energetic materials and the increasing experience and capabilities within the field.
Currently, there are various ongoing projects and applications in which products and services are provided by Akana Engineering in the field of energetic material systems:
Before the shell filling in the ammunition production processes and in similar situations; The contact surfaces are coated taking into account the energetic material to be contacted.
Lining machine design and production
Surface preparation before ammunition loading
Designs suitable for different sizes of ammunition
Usage areas; rocket engines, aircraft and general purpose ammunition
Raw Material Preparation
Energetic materials must be prepared in the right conditions and concentration before mixing, filling and use.
Raw material feeding
Mixing and filling are very important methods in the production of energetic materials and ready-to-use ammunition.
Capacity range in off-the shelf products: 0.5 – 2000 liters
Design and production for specialized capacities
Original knife & mechanism designs
1 Pint Mikser
1 Galon Mikser
5 Galon Mikser
30 Galon Mikser
150 Galon Mikser
500 Galon Mikser
Fixed platform stations
Movable platform (mechanized lift) stations
Test & Evaluation Systems
Performance evaluations of energetic materials and ammunition are carried out from many different aspects, especially mechanics and chemistry.
Burning rate measuring device
Verification with raw material preparation, production or destruction processes
Although the lifetime of ammunition and the methods and criteria of destruction at the end of lifetime differ significantly, the risks and safety sensitivity requirements of the operations to be performed are often similar.
Design and production of dismantling equipment
Process and plant project engineering
Design and application experience suitable for rockets, missiles and other classical ammunition
Thermal destruction equipment; Static and rotary furnaces
Gas purification systems after thermal destruction
Other Energetic Material Applications and Special Requests
The production, sales and use of energetic materials and ammunition is a strategic issue and is planned and carried out by the Turkish Armed Forces and defense industry public authorities in Turkey.
Akana Engineering strives to do every task assigned to it in this field in the best possible way and prepares itself by improving itself according to the possible needs that will arise in the future.
You can contact us for your questions about the work we have done so far or for your project, product or service requests regarding energetic materials. While submitting your questions and requests, we kindly ask you to share the technical details of the subject, as well as the project, system and / or institution information to which it is related.
Similar to fuel and explosives, pyrolants are energetic materials composed of oxidizer and fuel components. Pyrolants react at high temperature when they are burned to form condensed and / or gaseous products. Fuels are used for rockets and weapons to generate propulsion through the flaming phenomenon, while explosives are used for warheads, bombs, and mines to generate destructive forces through the explosion phenomenon. Pyrolants are used for pyrotechnic systems such as channel rockets, gas hybrid rockets and igniters and flares.
ATEX is the abbreviation of the French words ATmosphéres EXplosives; It consists of EU directives that determine the minimum safety requirements for explosive, flammable and easily flammable environments and equipment to be used in these environments. Ammunition mixers and bowl lift systems developed by Akana Engineering are certified and secured within the scope of ATEX 2014/34 / EU Regulation on Equipment and Protective Systems Used in Potentially Explosive Atmospheres.
Energetic materials are used in a large number of military and industrial applications. The basic phenomena on which explosives, fuels and pyrrolants are based and the applications they often find differ from one another.
