Valcor Engineering Corporation, a world-class designer and manufacturer of custom precision fluid controls for nuclear, space, aircraft, and scientific/industrial industries, has just released a new white paper on solenoid operated valves, entitled “Keeping Fuel Tanks Safe from Destruction.”

This paper discusses the history of fuel tank inerting on aircraft from the 1950s to today, including the development and benefits of Air Separation Modules (ASM) used in On-Board Inert Gas Generating Systems (OBIGGS) on both military and commercial aircraft.

“Valcor’s newest ASM design draws from over 75 million cumulative flight hours, providing a wealth of data,” stated Steve Etter, Vice President of Aftermarket Sales. “We raised the bar setting our own internal design and qualification requirements to provide operators with a significantly improved durability at a very competitive price.”
