Cartridge Regulator

The RV001 is a micro-scale pneumatic pressure reducing valve for satellite electric propulsion systems. The valve was designed for constellation applications where cost, lead time, and reliability are paramount. Internal part count has been dramatically reduced compared with a typical pressure reducing valve. A metal/ceramic seat ensures long service life and tight internal leakage.

  • Minimized part count
  • Precise pressure control
  • User adjustable

Cartridge Solenoid Valve

The PLV015L is a micro-scale latching valve developed for electric propulsion systems. The valve is typically used to pulse-control fluid flow into a downstream pressure regulator, which feeds the end point thruster.

  • Innovative body and seat design
  • Minimized part count
  • Fast response time
