Lee Products’ high-pressure relief valve is designed for flow control applications that require a high relief pressure and a high flow rate in a compact package. The Hi-Q valve provides relief pressures up to 5400 psid and flow rates over 19 gal/min and so is suited to critical flow applications including aero engine fuel pumps, aircraft flight controls, Formula 1 or rally cars, and oil tool applications. A side inlet flow path helps to minimize the installation boss size and weight, resulting in a valve that measures 98.5 mm in length and 23 mm in diameter and weighs 200 g.

After many years of flat-lining in the supply of new commercial jet engines—with improved models, but with designs dating back to the late 1990s, relying on a continuous path of evolutionary development—a new generation of super-efficient powerplants is entering service, introducing many technologies that will also be applied to future engines.
SAE International is working with the joint-venture initiative looking to deploy a high-powered DC fast-charging network for battery electric vehicles (BEVs) covering long-distance travel routes in Europe.
Fuel efficiency—and the economic and ecological benefits associated with it—continues to be the white rabbit of the global aviation industry. While engine builders look toward composites and electrification, and airframe designers toward lightweighting and aerodynamics, engineers at NASA’s Glenn Research Center recently completed testing of a novel concept: the boundary layer ingesting propulsor.
S.S. White Technologies is supplying flexible rotary shafts for the Honeywell Aerospace Air Turbine Starter on the next-gen GE Aviation GE9X high-bypass turbofan engines.
