Senior Aerospace Metal Bellows has promoted these products:
Senior designs and manufactures a variety of bellows dynamic seals, ideal for high temperature applications where elastomeric seals break down.
Typical applications include engine nacelle seals, firewall seal, fuel drain seal, and engine duct seals.
Senior has developed a patent pending bellows technology for use in gas charged valves,
such as gas lift or chemical injection valves. This bellows technology is capable of operating in pressures up to 15,000
PSIG and 100,000 or more cycles. The High Pressure Bellows Seal typically uses a double bellows arrangement.
What is a welded metal bellows? A welded metal bellows is a zero leakage dynamic seal capable of a great range of motion and manufactured from sheet stock. The material of construction may be stainless steel, high nickel alloys, titanium or other alloys to suit the application requirements.
Since 1955, Senior Aerospace Metal Bellows has designed and manufactured millions of sophisticated systems and components for military and commercial aircraft, space shuttles, and satellites. Senior's systems and components have been engineered to extremely precise tolerances for the most demanding applications
Senior also designs and manufactures Thermal Control Valves (TCV). The TCV integrates the temperature sensing, actuaton and valve function into a neat, compact package. These designs may also include pressure relief as required.
• Cooling system storage/compensation
• Hydraulic system fluid storage/compensation
• Fuel system storage
Senior Aerospace Metal Bellows' compressors and bellows vacuum pumps use our unique welded metal bellows technology as the pumping chamber. This allows for features and performance parameters that are impossible to achieve with conventional vacuum pumps and compressors.
This bellows type compressor may be used for commercial or military aircraft or weapons systems applications where a 400Hz compressor is required.
Standard (off-the-shelf) and custom-designed pumps are available with options for high-pressure, low-flow, all-metal valve, VCR® ports, along with various motors.
Senior Aerospace welded metal bellows firewall feedthroughs seal penetrations while allowing for axial motion. All-metal construction allows for operation in extreme temperature environments where conventional feedthroughs fail.
Using our advanced metal bellows technology, the PRIME MOVER™ actuator is a unique linear actuator that provides superior reliability and maintenance-free performance.
• Provides hermetic, zero leakage actuation
