Canyon Valves Isolate Hydraulic Pressure

 - July 8, 2012, 2:30 PM

Canyon Engineering Products (Hall 4 Stand F7) has developed a line of dual- or multiple-port manual rotary-select valves that enable aircraft operators to isolate hydraulic pressure, at up to 5,000 psi, from specific systems to permit aircraft ground maintenance. The company’s rudder isolation valve, operating with 7.92 U.S. gallons per minute flow rate at up to 7.25 psi differential pressure, has an overall weight of 1.05 pounds, while another product is a three-port, two-position valve to isolate nosewheel door actuators for servicing. Canyon has other valves to control flow from an aircraft hand pump to the hydraulic accumulator or to control pressure to multiple hydraulic systems.
