Cartridge Actuated Devices
The success of your Piston Actuators, Cutters, Pin Pullers, Pushers, Thrusters and Retractors rely on the stroke of an internal rod or piston to help you achieve your mission-critical goal. As an innovator in the motion control sector, PacSci EMC has pioneered application advancement that initiates devices by many methods, including EED, Pyrotechnic Initiator, and Pressure Cartridge.
PacSci EMC Piston Actuators, Gas Bottle Actuators (GBAs), Cutters, Pin Pullers, Pushers, Thrusters and Retractors have been used to:
- Retract to reposition ejection seats for emergency exit
- Deploy a life raft
- Release cargo hooks, door assemblies, covers or weights
- Thrust to drive linkage on doors, flight controls or window assemblies
- Push cutter through a burst disk
- Cut wire, cord, bolts, rods
PacSci EMC Piston Actuators, Cutters, Pin Pullers, Pin Pushers, Thrusters and Retractors include features such as function time, stroke and force to meet any mission requirement.
Explosive/Separation Nuts and Bolts
PacSci EMC designs high explosive bolts, nuts and studs for aircraft, missile, space and marine applications where rapid structure separation is required. Our explosive bolt designs include:
- Pressure actuated
- Ridge cut
- Piston actuated and hydrodynamic (pressure amplified) in a wide range of sizes
- Configurations and tensile capacities (from as little as 1,400 pounds to as much as 557,000 pounds)
PacSci EMC cutters and guillotines – including electric detonators (single or dual bridge wire), pressure cartridges, squibs, ETLs, laser initiators – are designed for aircraft, missile, space, marine, and test applications. Our designs incorporate high strength blades and any number of ports for ETLs and detonators or harnesses, including electrical, fiber optic, wire wrap stainless cables, webbing and tubing, and a cable/cord diameter in sizes to meet your specifications.
Pyrotechnic valves are very useful devices when the free flow or termination of gas and liquids is required on command. Normally Open Valves can be activated by ETLs or an electric signal to a small explosive charge (EED); this, in turn, shears away a small flange that blocked the flow path. Normally Closed Valves are activated in the same manner but in this case turn or block the free flow of a gas or liquid.
PacSci EMC valves are designed with the most compatible materials to effectively handle all types of gaseous and liquid mediums including helium nitrogen, oxygen, water, fuels, oxidizers and hydrazine. As a result, they are used in a variety of aircraft, missile, spacecraft, marine and commercial applications.
