Aerospace Systems & Components has flight proven pilot operated gate valve designs currently installed on many aircraft platforms. Our gate style valve provides a shut-off or dual flow solution. Gate valves can be designed with extremely low full-open pressure drop and internal leakage, along with the shortest installed length of any valve configuration on the market today.
Gate valves can be custom designed to operate in any pneumatic system providing the highest efficiency and delivering superior resistance to the harshest environmental conditions at extreme temperatures.
Applications for gate type valves include high pressure engine bleed shutoff, bi-level restriction (such as bi-level flow control when used with a pressure regulator), bi-directional cross-flow (for single engine operation), heat exchanger bypass, APU anti-surge and many other uses. ASC gate valves are qualified and used in military applications, helicopter applications, any zone in turboprop aircraft (including engine compartment) and most locations on turbofan aircraft ranging from engine pylon to tailcone.
