F-1 Engine LOX Inlet Closure Gallery


One of the desiccant cups, located at the 12:00 and 6:00 positions on the turbopump oxidizer inlet closure assembly.

Picture 1 of 2.

The stylized Rocketdyne logo and "Install 8 Units Desiccant" are engraved in the top surface.

What would appear to be its part number, "ST3950159RKL001" and "Assy-35070", are stamped onto it between the logo and desiccant markings. Above the Rocketdyne logo is stamped "02602" (or perhaps "J2602").

The white label reads
