NASA's MESSENGER has just celebrated its 10 year anniversary in space. Valcor Engineering Corporation is proud to have one of its latch valves, V27200-818, operating onboard this spacecraft.

The MESSENGER mission is a scientific investigation of Mercury. It is only the second spacecraft to be sent there, and has provided a vast amount of data and images of the planet.

Valcor's V27200 family of latch valves utilize solenoids that also include permanent magnets to maintain the valve in both the open and closed position. This provides secure valve open/close operation with only a short pulse of electrical power.

"The continued operation of the latch valve on Messenger is a perfect example of Valcor's technology and quality," said Paul Meyers, Director of Sales Marketing at Valcor.
