KEY UNITS FOR CARRIER ROCKETS AND LANDING MODULES

Our long-term effort to adapt high-speed machine technology to new products resulted in an agreement with the European Space Agency in 2017. Thanks to this initiative, electric pumps will be developed to enable new possibilities for rocket engines architecture. We also develop electromotive driven valves which enable to control rocket engine thrust, including control electronics and software.


SPACE DEVELOPMENT APPLICATION

EQUIPPED WITH OUR VALVES AND PUMPS, SPACECRAFTS ON THE SURFACE OF MOON, MARS, ASTEROIDS, OR OTHER PLANETS WILL BE LANDING AND DEPARTING.

Product development and engineering services for space applications are one of the biggest challenges in industrial development and manufacturing. The products are exposed to extreme environments, so the highest possible standard is emphasized, which we can meet thanks to more than 30 years of experience with rotary machines. Our electric pumps can also be used in energy and cryogenics applications.

SUBSYSTEMS FOR LIQUID-PROPELLANT ROCKET ENGINES

Electric pumps for space applications

The complicated architecture of liquid-propellant rocket engines can be greatly simplified by using high-speed permanent magnet synchronous motors to drive the pump instead of a turbine. The new design consists of a high-speed synchronous motor, a fluid dynamic bearing and an innovative seal.


Electric valves for space applications

Rocket fuel valves are subject to high standards, guaranteeing perfect technological quality and technical reliability. Our valves are designed for 100 KN throttleable LOX-methane expander engine. We develop regulating valves with electromotive drive, including a dedicated electronic controller.

Microelectronics and Power Electronics for Space Applications

The electric pump control system ensures accurate control of the rocket engine performance, a key feature for landers.
