Overall walk-around of the H-1 engine's aspirator.

Picture 2 of 4.

Turbine exhaust gasses are channelled into the aspirator, where they are vented around the periphery of the engine's exit plane; this prevents recirculation of the fuel-rich gasses which could cause damage due to afterburning.

For additional information, see my Saturn I/IB turbine exhaust page.
