P3 Technologies Receives AS9100 Rev D and ISO 9001:2015 Certification
P3 Technologies has recently received certification to ISO 9001:2015 and AS9100 revision D – the globally recognized aerospace quality management standard. The scope of the certification includes Sales, Design, and Manufacturing including machined parts for the aerospace and defense industries.
P3 Technologies Welcomes Questor Technology and Indigo Power Systems
P3 Technologies was excited to welcome Audrey Mascarenhas, CEO of Questor Technology, and Dave Huber, President of Indigo Power Systems, for a visit to our facilities in Jupiter, Florida.
P3 is proud to be developing a series of turbine expanders for Questor Technology’s family of Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) Power Generators – providing clean, efficient electricity from waste heat.
CHAMP Turbopump Gas-Generator Successfully Tested
P3 Technologies has conducted testing on a low mixture ratio liquid oxygen / gaseous methane gas-generator (G-G) specifically developed for its CHAMP turbopump. The G-G has demonstrated low pressure ignition as well as steady-state performance. Testing was conducted by Luke Humphreys and Daniel Stubbs at the Auburn University Combustion Physics Laboratory under the direction of Dr. David Scarborough.
CHAMP Turbopump Selected for Masten Space System’s Xogdor Rocket
Masten Space Systems has selected the Compact High-Performance Affordable Modular Pump (CHAMP) turbopump for its new Xogdor rocket. Xogdor is Masten’s sixth vertical takeoff and vertical landing rocket that will be used as a state-of-the-art test vehicle for critical Artemis and commercial space technologies.
AFWERX Selects Revolutionary Turbomachinery Technology for Award
AFWERX, the Air Force Technology Accelerator, has selected a revolutionary diffuser design from P3 Technologies for a Phase II SBIR award. The selected effort is in support of P3’s recently patented pump and compressor diffuser technology that improves any new or existing system’s performance.
P3 Technologies Receives Patent for its Revolutionary Diffuser Technology
The U.S. Patent Office has issued P3 Technologies patent 10,683,873 for the Multiple Channel Diffuser. The multi-channel diffuser (MCD), also known as the Demski Diffuser, was invented by P3 employee Brandon Demski. The diffuser significantly increases the performance of pumps and compressors while reducing their size, weight, and power consumption.
