Prometheus Chamber valve

Safran Aero Boosters

Mass 30 kg

Fluid compatibility L/GCH4, L/GOx, L/GN2, GHe

Maximal pressure 231 bar

ESEOD 118 mm

Flow rate (LCH4 – LOx) 76kg/s - 250kg/s

This valve operates as propellant chamber valve for the Prometheus engine, on both oxygen and methane sides. This ball valve allows the propellant flow regulation thanks to its motorized geared electrical actuator as well as the propellant tightness in closed position.

Space Equipment

Design, development, assembly & testing of flow regulation valves for space launcher engines and stages.

Space equipement - Safran Aero Boosters - VP - Vinci Engine.

Safran Aero Boosters specializes in flow regulation valves for space propulsion. With a strong focus on Research and Technology, the company is a partner on most future European launcher propulsion programs. Safran Aero Boosters’s equipment is developed under extreme conditions of temperature, pressure, vibration and flow and has demonstrated 100% reliability over 45 years. The company is able to hardness this high-level expertise to provide flow regulation valves (pneumatic/electric – linear/rotative) for most of propulsion systems on launchers.
