TS-160Y Pyro Actuated Poppet Valve
The TS-160Y Pyrotechnically Actuated Poppet Valve (patent pending) is a revolutionary new high pressure, high flow poppet valve ideal for high pressure fluid systems used in rocket propulsion applications such as sounding rocket main propellant valves, pressurization system isolation valves and emergency pneumatic blow down systems.
We recognize that some applications in the emerging sounding rocket market need high flow rate valves like our TS-160S, but require only a single “open” valve actuation (as opposed to the many “open/close” cycles possible with our TS-160S). To serve this market, we have developed a lower-cost, single-use product, the TS-160Y. The TS-160Y has equivalent flow performance and pressure rating of the TS-160S, but is pyrotechnically actuated with the TS-LCI100 pyrotechnic initiator (details here) and opens in less than 100 milliseconds. Once fired the valve remains open until upstream pressure decays to zero, then the pyro cavity may be vented and the internal shuttle spool reset for another use. The TS-160Y may be reused many times, unlike most pyrotechnically actuated valves, which makes it ideal for low cost sounding rocket applications. With a starting price of only $4,399 and significant quantity discounts available, the TS-160Y provides a unique capability to the emerging low cost sounding rocket world.
The TS-160Y has several unique features:
- Same high pressure rating and flow area as our TS-160S pilot solenoid actuated valves but at half the cost
- Fast actuation time with full flow in under 100 milliseconds
- Once commanded open, valve stays open until upstream pressure drops to atmospheric pressure
- Unlike most one time use pyro valves that destroy an internal membrane or frangible link, the TS-160Y uses pyro gases to move a reusable shuttle spool, so that the valve may be reused many times by simply venting the pyro cavity and resetting the pyro shuttle spool to the pre-fire position
- The internal geometry of the TS-160Y ensures pyro gases are kept separate from the primary flow path
