Woodward Aircraft Turbine Air Valves

    Highly reliable, cost-effective design solutions

    Woodward is a world leader in the design and manufacture of air valves and air metering technologies across the turbine engine environment. Our designs leverage decades of experience with reliable operation in harsh environments, including those in extreme high temperature  (1400°F) and severe exhaust contamination. Furthermore, decades of industry-leading innovations in turbine engine actuation, position sensing, and servo systems provide for highly-reliable, cost-effective solutions.

    Design features include:

    • A CFD-led systems approach to yield significant cost and weight savings without violating the most stringent envelope constraints
    • Innovative flow body designs capable of meeting Class IV “bubble tight” sealing per ANSI/FCI 70-2 over life in extreme environments (equates to 0.01% of rated flow)
    • Leverage of industry-leading actuator and servo innovations that reduce LRU and system costs while simultaneously improving reliability
