    Apollo Program: Saturn V Engine Chill System Solenoid Valve. A liquid oxygen, chill pump motor container solenoid valve manufactured by Calmec Manufacturing Corporation of Los Angeles, California, measuring 5.25" x 2.25" x 2.75". This part bears the famous NASA George C. Marshall Space Flight Center aluminum data plate which reads, in part: "Valve, LO2 Chill,/ Pump Motor Container/ Assy. No. 586/ Contr. No. NAS7-101/ Ser No. 0033/ Date 11/67". The valve bears inspection stamps from Calmec and Douglas Aircraft Company and a Conoseal fitting (specific to Saturn rockets). Excellent condition.

    The chill system is that which flushes the oxygen and hydrogen fuel ducts with their corresponding liquid fuels in order to cool the ducting prior to starting or restarting the engine so as to avoid boiling (vaporizing) the fuels as they enter the thrust chamber.
