Marotta Controls Oxygen Compatible Solenoid Valves Offer Versatility While Minimizing Parts Count | Your money

MONTVILLE, New Jersey–(BUSINESS WIRE)–April 5, 2022–

Today, Marotta Controls, a growing aerospace and defense supplier with over 65 years of spaceflight experience, announced that its latest direct-acting solenoid valve is qualified for use in high pressure oxygen systems. Notably, the valve is also suitable for launch vehicle inert gas systems given its high flow capacity, small size, fast response time and overall cost effectiveness. The manifold-mounted PLV405 can be configured with two or three ports and has been proven to be reusable with a high life cycle count and tested.

Offering the same performance benefits, Marotta Controls also produces an in-line model – the MV405. This valve is also available in 2-way or 3-way port configurations.

The PLV405 valves offer significant improvements over similar existing options, to include nearly double the flow capacity in a 7% lighter package with 33% faster response time. They are built with alloys produced according to the ATSM A36 standard.

“We understand the complexity of building and qualifying spacecraft. And we understand the importance of simplifying this process in every way possible to speed up manufacturing without compromising quality,” said Brian Ippolitto, Director, Engineering Aerospace Systems, Marotta Controls “We see ourselves as more than just suppliers. We operate as true partners who aim to mitigate or at least minimize challenges wherever possible throughout the development cycle. Today , this intention manifests itself in the production of a single, high-performance and extremely versatile valve.”

The 3-way valve is also available in a modified version that only supports nitrogen, helium and air (no oxygen).

The devices comply with Air Force Space Command (AFSC) SMC-S-016 and undergo Marotta’s advanced cleaning and testing processes used for all space-related hardware.
