Aero Fluid Products provides a broad range of valves for numerous aircraft applications. These valves are specifically designed to handle all types of fluids including hydraulic and lubricating oils, fuel, air, coolant, potable water, and waste. They are constructed of various materials to meet the environmental conditions they are exposed to while optimizing weight and space constraints. Their methods of actuation are selected to meet the requirements of the application and include manual, motor, solenoid, servo, and pilot actuation. The valves themselves come in many styles, including gate ball, flapper, butterfly, poppet, and spool configurations. Aero Fluid Products specializes not only in these discrete components, but in integrating these valves into modules and manifolds which reduce weight and envelope, eliminate assembly and leakage concerns and provide for line replaceable units (LRU).
Aero Fluid Products maintains a fully staffed engineering group with any years of experience in designing all types of hydraulic, fuel and air controls. These engineers are equipped with all of the CAD and FEA tools needed to quickly develop products which are optimized to meet performance, weight and durability requirements. This group includes FAA DAR and DER designees to facilitate rapid development of aftermarket PMA products as well as new repair and overhaul procedures.
Our engineering group maintains a fully equipped in-house prototype machine shop to support rapid product development and testing. In addition, our engineering lab has extensive test capabilities, allowing us to quickly perform development and qualification work such as temperature, altitude, humidity, shock, vibration and endurance. Hydraulic and pneumatic test stands allow for a wide variety of flow and pressure tests to be performed using all types of hydraulic, lube, fuel and coolant fluids.
Aero Fluid Products’ manufacturing facility provides a full in-house capability to fabricate, assemble and test all of our products. This facility and it’s quality management system operate under both full AS9100 and FAA approval and certification. These capabilities include machining, honing, electrical and mechanical assembly, acceptance testing, and manual and automated final inspection.
