The packaging comes out quite nicely. They have several advantages to the linkage actuated version - this will be my go forward design.
Along those lines, I have been wondering if there are people out there that might like to buy a pre-made valve like this one. It was actually more of a pain to build than I thought it would be and personally, I prefer to spend my time building rockets rather than various peripheral devices.
Here are some of the relevant details:
- CV of 1.6 and is rated for 1.6 gpm of flow at 1 psi delta and 5.1 gpm at 10 psi
- rated to 3000 psi
- can throttle fairly well and has fast response (as can be seen on this blog)
- o-ring sealed and can be compatible with most non-cryogenic propellants, including hydrocarbons and hydrogen peroxide
- the servo would be a Hitec digital servo with titanium gears (6.0V or 7.2V input)
If you're interested in buying a valve like this, drop me an email.
