Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9747013A1] A device and method for controlling small flows of gas for satellite orientation thrusters comprises a photoetched silicon body (10) etched to provide one or more particular flow paths, and optionally filters, wherein the flow path is defined by the silicon body (10) and a sealing glass layer (11) bonded thereto. Flow is controlled through the flow path(s) by heating the body (10) to decrease the gas flow.
