For the Small Altitude Simulation System (SASS) in the 400 Area at WSTF, three boilers power small two-stage ejector sets of the altitude simulation system. Optimization of the entire steam system to engine requirements is achieved by the configuration of the number of boilers fired, the selection of the ejector combination, and the interchangeable diffusers.
