DescriptionApollo Program: Saturn V Engine Duct Resilient Mount. An aluminum and high temperature stainless steel resilient mount for 2" ducting manufactured by Robintech Inc. of Burbank, California under NASA Contract No. NAS7-101 for Douglas Aircraft Company and bearing a George C. Marshall Space Flight Center identification label with a date of April 1967. It measures 5" x 4.25" x 1.25" and the unit has part numbers and inspection stamps including a NASA triangular hand stamp. An opportunity to own a part of this venerable rocket series that launched all nine manned missions to the moon. Excellent condition.
Because of the extraordinary pressures and temperatures which the powerful Rocketdyne F-1 engine developed, all thrust-related components would move, expanding and contracting during launch as temperatures ranged from cryogenic through 4700°F. Multiple ways to hold ducting were tried early in the space program with this stainless steel mesh proving very effective; it allowed expansion of bellowed assemblies and would not "freeze and grab" during engine operation.
