Additively Manufactured Hermetically Sealed Isolation Valve

Completed Technology Project

Project Description

CAD Model of AM-produced Valve
This effort leverages a 2012/2013 TIPS program partnership between MSFC and GSFC. A new isolation valve design will be fabricated via Additive Manufacturing. This technique will greatly simplify the valve design and hence increase reliability. Incorporation of curved internal fluid pathways and an integrated multiplier arm are now possible. This will allow the use of magnetorestrictive materials to provide millisecond actuation. A key deliverable is prototype testing in August of 2016. More »
