Valcor’s new whitepaper focuses on cryogenic launch vehicle valves


Fluid and motion controls manufacturer Valcor Engineering Corporation (Valcor) has released its new whitepaper entitled, ‘Cryogenic Launch Vehicle Valves’.

Focusing on cryogenic rocket propellants, the paper outlines the challenges involved in designing critical fluid control systems for space launch vehicles (LVs). 

Due to the highly turbulent nature of flight, LVs experience extreme vibrations and shocks during payload delivery. 

This implies very specific testing procedures must be undertaken to ensure that components such as valves can handle the rigorous demands of space flight.
