Up to 10,000 psi
Marotta’s patented electronic pressure regulator is suitable for spaceflight, defense and facility applications. Through a closed loop electronic control system controlling piezo-actuated pilot valves, the regulator constantly measures actual downstream outlet pressure and adjusts to changing inlet conditions.
The precise flow control results in accurate outlet pressure insensitive to inlet pressure, flow rate and temperature. The Marotta 10K Regulator multifunctionality provides positive isolation and precise flow control and pressure regulation.
Electronically Controlled, Piezo Actuated Regulator
The MFV400 electronic regulator is a hybrid mechanical-electronic system that provides flexible, accurate, and stable pressure regulation across a large pressure ratio.
The hybrid design of the system combines mechanical and electronic pressure control. Transient stability and pressure regulation is handled by the mechanical system. Longer time frame deviations, set point, and output pressure are handled by the electronic control system. This hybrid approach enables very fast, accurate, stable, and scalable operation without large electronic power or control input. Time averaged power draw is less than 10W, and peak draw is less than 45W.
The system consists of a dome loaded regulator with two pilots that can increase or decrease dome pressure as needed during operation. The dome pilot valves are actuated by an electronic control system that constantly measures system output pressure and increases or decreases dome pressure as required to correct for output pressure error
Accurate/minimal Deviation in output pressure regardless of inlet conditions
Outlet pressure can be varied on command
Customer system will be informed of a regulator fault
Failure of 1 transducer will not result in failure of system. Failure of 2 or more transducers will close regulator.
Can act as an isolation valve, combining two functions into one device
Compatible with earth storable propellants N2O4 and MMH & less aggressive fluids
Proportional control of pilots enables smoother corrections.
