Your home furnace would
be this small
...if it had
an Allison combustor.
Or... in aircraft terminology: the new Allison Combustor
turns out four times the heat release of combustors in
production engines. Yet a combustor for a 10,000 lb. thrust
engine can be held in one hand.
  It's an Allison breakthrough in lightweight engine tech-
nology. Immediate application: Allison Lift engines. De-
signed to propel tomorrow's jet aircraft straight up.
  So far, Allison Lift engines have attained thrust/weight
ratins over fourr times those of nrniijrtinn engines
  Other factors hz
pressor blades tha
  Advanced turbi
higher inlet tempe
blade temperature
  Even greater advances are on the way-for turbojet and
turbofan engines. With 30:1 thrust/weight ratios forecast.
Shorter compressors. More efficient combustors. For lift or
cruise engines.
  Advanced lightweight technology is another demonstra-
tion of Allison's broad capabilities in research, engineer-
ing, and production. Capabilities that help keep defense,
aerospace and nuclear projects on target.*
