Sensors (LVDT)

Aerospace Sensors (LVDT)

Nearly every aircraft in service today carries a LISK sensor. We have a deep understanding of the demands on components used in aerospace applications. LISK LVDT and Delta-P sensors offer robust construction to withstand rigorous environmental conditions such as thermal changes, vibration and shock; withstanding temperatures up to but not limited to 375° F (190° C). We perform upfront risk mitigation such as HALT & HASS.

Flame Arrestors

Aerospace Flame Arrestors

Our flame arrestors are used in fuel inerting systems, fuel venting systems, electrical panel protection (sealed or vented), explosive environment protection, in-flight refueling systems, and many more.

Custom designs and the most demanding challenges are our specialty. Standard (platform) designs to meet demands for reduced engineering time, reduced lead-time and lower cost are also available.

Advantages include:

  • Unique manufacturing processes eliminate hardware from the flow path, and reduce the weight and cost of the component
  • Diameter designs customized to meet your specified need
  • Sealed, end-of-line flame arrestors fitted with a burst disc for foreign body protection
  • Designed to meet customer and environmental requirements as well as as well as RTCA DO-160 or MIL-STD-810 (where applicable)
  • Designs that meet or exceed standards in (NEC Gas Groups: A, B, C, D or (IEC) Groups: IIA, IIB (3), IIC
