FAQs on Solenoid Valves

WHAT IS A SOLENOID CONTROL VALVE?

solenoid control valve ian electro-mechanical control unit that is normally used to control and direct the flow of liquid. When the control valve switches between energized or de-energized, this will either allow fluid or gas to flow or shut off from the core tube. Solenoids are highly reliable with long service life and offer way of fast and safe switching. 

 

piloted solenoid valve provides high flow rates and can operate at higher pressure and temperature range, with lower power consumption.

 

HOW DO SOLENOID CONTROL VALVES WORK?

 

Solenoid valves are used to control the flow of fluids or gases, by opening or closing an orifice in the valve body to release, shut off, mix, direct or distribute fluidsThe orifice is controlled by a plunger which is raised when energised or lowered when de-energised, this is achieved by energising the solenoid coil within a core tube.   

 

WHERE ARE SOLENOID CONTROL VALVES USED?

 

Solenoid valves are used in many different industrial applications such as fluid power motors, pneumatic and hydraulic systemscalibration stands and various others. 

 

To name a few sectors where solenoid valves are used: 

 

  • Plant control loops 
  • Process control systems 
  • General on-off control 
  • Pressure relief and drainage 
  • Transport and tank facilities 
  • Oil and gas burner temperature controls   
  • Treatment of drinking water 
  • Machine and plant engineering  
  • Fire protection and extinguishing systems  
  • Fuelling supplies
