Senior Aerospace Metal Bellows has promoted these products:
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 deigns may also include pressure relief as required.
- High vacuum seals
- Leak-free motion feedthroughs
- Flexible joints
- Volume compensators, accumulators
- Pressure and temperature actuators
the welded metal bellows provides maximum axial, angular and lateral motion in a compact package. The all metal construction is suitable for high temperature environments. Senior can provide an integrated package including the bellows and duct.
Senior Aerospace Metal Bellows' compressors and vacuum pumps utilize our unique welded metal bellows technology as the pumping chamber. This bellows design allows for features that are not available with conventional vacuum pumps and compressors.
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 has developed a patent pending bellows technology for use in high pressure injection valve applications. This bellows technology is capable of supporting injection pressures up to 15,000 psi.
For performance, maintenance, and reliability requirements, bellows reservoirs are far superior to conventional piston reservoirs for these applications. Senior Aerospace has developed lightweight titanium EHA reservoirs for use on both commercial and military aircraft.
Senior Aerospace developed a lightweight compressor, which uses a 400 Hz AC motor, for use on aircraft. By using a bellows compressor, we can offer contamination- free operation. The bellows is designed for virtually infinite cycle life providing for a mean time between failures in excess of 50,000 hours.
Senior's Prime Mover™ bellows actuator is ideal for applications requiring actuation across a pressure boundary. These units provide zero leakage, precise, repeatable linear actuation. The bellows construction allows for superior reliability, contamination free operation, compact design and maintenance free operation.
Bellows Thermal Compensator features-
- Inner & outer bellows
- Fluid between the two bellows
- Bellows allow for thermal expansion of the fluid
