Recently, SpaceX successfully performed a static fire test with all six Raptor engines on the Starship SN20 rocket at its Starbase facility near the South Texas village of Boca Chica. Hoffer Flow Controls is a supplier of turbine flow meters, from our HO Series of liquid meters, to SpaceX for use on liquid methane and liquid oxygen for engine testing the Raptor engines. SpaceX uses our turbine meters in sizes ranging from 1” through 12” for the measurement of liquid fuels used on the Raptor engines. The ability of the flow systems to handle cryogenic temperatures is an important factor when specifying the flow systems used by SpaceX. SpaceX, along with many other aerospace companies, continue to select Hoffer turbine flow meters for their engine testing/propulsion requirements.
Challenging or simple flow applications, we handle them all. Let an application specialist at Hoffer help you with your flow measurement requirements.
