High Performance in Sub-Zero Temperatures
The NewSpace industry’s increasing performance requirements include the capability for space craft to travel further into space with longer program life cycles. To support these advancements in space exploration system designers are cooling all fluids to ultra-low temperatures to fit more propellants into the same size tanks. Marotta has adapted to the demand for sub-zero compatible materials by leveraging our portfolio of 30+ cryogenic valves since the early days on the Apollo and Saturn missions.
Our cryogenic valves have been used for various ground support and spaceflight applications with liquid oxygen, liquid nitrogen and liquid hydrogen fluid transfer systems. The PV20 and PV25 are capable of operating at temperatures as low as -320°F (-195°C) and the MV36M at -423°F (-252°C).

- Liquid Nitrogen
Marotta’s cryogenic valve heritage dates back to the Apollo and Saturn days of NASA. The PV20T, PV25T, and MV36M were designed and developed for various ground support and spaceflight applications with liquid oxygen, liquid nitrogen, and liquid hydrogen fluid transfer systems. Modernization of these design concepts with recent lessons learned through Marotta’s CoRe® production line results in a robust, reliable, and modern cryogenic valve series.
