This particular valve is a two-way, semi-direct lift valve with a normally closed operating position. This means that there are two ports in which media flows, the valve will open when the coil is energized and allow media to pass through. Removing the energy from the valve coil will close it and stop the flow. It works across various media such as hot water, air, gas, diesel fuel, Freon, weak acids and weak alkali. The valve features a heavy duty, solid brass body that’s sure to last in the most strenuous projects.
The port size is 1/4” inch female NPT threaded. This Electric Solenoid Valve can handle low viscosity fluids below 20 cst. The orifice size is 25mm and Cv value is 12. It can withstand pressure up to 115 psi (8 bar) and temperatures as low as 15°F and as high as 265°F. The seal material is FKM or Viton Rubber. This valve works in one direction and will not prevent media from moving backwards in the opposite direction.
This specific valve has a 12 Volt DC coil with a voltage range that is – 10. The coil head is fitted with 5″ lead wires that can easily be connected with your own choice of terminals. The coils are not polarized, which mean that positive/negative does not matter when wiring them. The top of the coil features a label that indicates the valve type and specifications. Its response time is very low; in fact, it acts in less than one second, making it a great choice for all types of applications.
