Missiles & Space Manifolds

Description

When the need to minimize the footprint and weight of a fluid control system is critical to system design, the use of a custom manifold assembly is often the solution. The design starts with a base manifold to incorporate our solenoid valves, pressure regulators and relief valves into a compact integrated system. Our components use plug-in or baseplate manifold mounting, which eliminates the bulky tubing and fittings otherwise used to connect these devices. Highly reliable elastomeric or PTFE seals ensure leak-tight pressure boundary seals that withstand extreme vibration and atmospheric temperatures. Integrating third-party components like pressure and temperature sensors, pressure switches, filters and gauging allows for a compact, turnkey assembly ready for installation in your process system.

Application

Manifold assemblies are highly desirable in spacecraft and launch vehicle systems for their compact size and light weight. Manifolds eliminate bulky tubing and fittings that are prone to vibration and leakage. By eliminating the need for the sourcing, assembly and test of individual components typically found in fluidic systems, manifolds are substantially cost-effective.
