Fabrication of a High Pressure/High Flow Cartridge Valve for the Compressed Air Energy Storage Industry (Wind/Solar)

Fluid Logic has earned a reputation for our ability to design and manufacture valve and valve systems for our core industries and is gaining recognition in emerging industries including solar and wind energy. The need to store compressed air energy gained from wind/solar applications allowed them to showcase their manufacturing capabilities to produce very large components with extremely fast actuation times.

Our high pressure/high flow cartridge valve pictured was designed to use hydraulic oil under extreme pressure and flow relative to part size. We incorporated the use of unique pressure balanced poppets manufactured from salt bath nitriding carbon and stainless steels to achieve a flow over of 9,000 GPM at 6,000 psi with a shifting requirement of 150 milliseconds. It also uses a D03 pilot valve to control the pressure and flow.

Each part is custom sized to fit the application as specified by the customer and must pass both a dimensional inspection and functionality testing prior to shipment. This takes generally 8-10 weeks from the time the part was ordered.
