A COPV for nitrogen:
Driven by a passion for pushing the limits of yesterday and helping others to push and go for new and amazing heights with our cylinder experts and our R & D Company MEYER®.
We wanted to be able to give our new friends in the Cubesat & Nanosats propulsion business a COPV for nitrogen that would give them a competitive advantage when it came to payloads & cold gas propulsion/thrusters (eg. nitrogen).
The problem our costumers faced was that the old COPV technology (type III) was lacking a compact design, as every milimeter counts, 10 millimeters may not sound of much – but it could be the one factor if it’s a go / no-go.
The 0.5L COPV for nitrogen that where available where simply to long, bulky and heavy in other words – they didn’t have the optimal dimensions.
Simply put, the type III COPV doesn’t have an optimal fit and weight for a small Cubesat.
We wanted to help to improve the cubesats payload, trim, speed and operating range.
We wanted a cylinder that was light, compact and had a thin cylinder wall – a cylinder designed for Cubesats.
Our research, what we discovered was that for the Cubesats to be a success, the HDRX-005 cylinder had to be:
The end result is simply an extremely light, compact and a super sexy cylinder. We believe this cylinder is perfect for the next mission.
