SPRINGFIELD, N.J.—A new white paper released by Valcor Engineering Corporation discusses the role that latch valves and regulators play in the continued growth of Low Earth Orbit (LEO) satellite constellations.
Valcor Engineering, founded in 1951, designs and manufactures custom, precision fluid controls and motion controls for the space, aircraft, nuclear, and scientific/industrial markets.
“Overall, these low-cost latch valves and regulators enable the economic viability of broadband LEO satellite constellations aimed at meeting the demand for high-speed internet service,” stated Larry Wismer, senior director of sales and marketing at Valcor, in a release. “These products complement our thruster valve, service valve, and propellant tank products, thereby completing Valcor’s portfolio of in-space propulsion systems components.”
Valcor Engineering designs and manufactures solenoid valves and other fluid control components, as well as subsystems, clutches, brakes, and on-board inert gas generations systems (OBIGGS) that are used in critical applications in the aerospace, nuclear, light industrial, and scientific industries. Its staff of engineers, designers, and technical support personnel use fully-equipped, modern test facilities to test to the most precise and exacting standards, the company said in the release.
Valcor said it specializes in custom applications, and can create an entirely new product to meet a customer’s needs. With access to a library of more than 18,000 designs, Valcor’s design team can modify existing technology to suit difficult-to-handle applications, the company said.
