Solenoid Control Valve
Flomatic® Corporation manufactures a solenoid valve that open full when the solenoid control is energized and closes drop tight when de-energized. The solenoid pilot valve introduces control water to the diaphragm chamber of the main valve for closure and exhaust control water from the diaphragm chamber to the open valve. The control fluid is usually water from the pipeline; however, a separate source of higher pressure may be used when desired.
A solenoid control valve is an electromechanical valve for use with liquid or gas. The valve is controlled by an electric current through a solenoid coil. Solenoid control valves may have two or more ports: in the case of a two-port valve the flow is switched on or off; in the case of a three-port valve, the outflow is switched between the two outlet ports. Multiple solenoid valves can be placed together on a manifold.
Water Solenoid Control Valves
Water solenoid valves are the most frequently used control elements in fluidics. Their tasks are to shut off, release, dose, distribute or mix fluids. They are found in many application areas. Solenoid valves offer fast and safe switching, high reliability, long service life, good medium compatibility of the materials used, low control power and compact design.
