Solenoid valves are used to control compressed air within pneumatic systems electrically; they are used to signal valves, cylinders or other pneumatic devices.
An electrical coil when energised operates a pneumatic directional valve.
Solenoid valves are single or dual solenoid coil control with or without priority; the priority function ensures a default position should two control signals arrive at the same time.
Solenoid valves are available as a 3 or 5-way valve configuration with G1/8, G1/4 or G1/2 threaded ports.
Voltages are 12V DC, 24; 48; 110V AC/DC or 230V AC. Coils slide onto a brass stem; a threaded cap secures the solenoid coil, a wiring plug can then be connected.
Choose between a poppet or spool design.
Poppet valves use O-rings, gaskets and seals; they are designed to offer higher flow rates than spool valves.
Spool valves are manufactured using a stainless steel spool and plastic liner, and although spool valves have lower flow rates than poppet type designs, they are better known for their long life expectancy.
We offer an ATEX fully certified, CE marked solenoid valves that comply with the ATEX directive for use within Group II category 2, zones 1 and 21.
