http://www.solenoidsolutionsinc.com | Solenoid valves are used across a wide range of industries and applications, from dishwashers to car transmissions. Learn the basics about solenoid valves and some of their key features.
Valve: a device used to control
the passage of media through a
pipe or duct.
Solenoid valve unit: an
flow regulation device, used to
shut off, release, dose,
distribute, or mix liquid or gas.
Solenoid: a coil wound into a tightly packed helix which creates a magnetic field when
an electric current passes through it.
Traditionally used in the machinery industry, solenoid valves are a vital component
of many industrial systems.
These valves make automation of
fluid and gas control possible.
Solenoid valves are used to
process these common media:
Solenoid valves are found in common
• Refrigerator water dispensers
• Freezer ice cube makers
• Washing machines
As well as in more commercial systems:
• Automatic irrigation sprinklers
• Car transmissions
• Medical and dental equipment
• Air conditioners
Solenoid valves come in a variety of configurations, sizes, potentials,
and materials suitable for countless applications.
• 2-way: one inlet and one outlet port and a single orifice
• 3-way: three port connections and two valve orifices
• Multi-Solenoid Valve Manifolds: flexibility in number of
solenoid valves and firing, control, and connection options
Sizes and potentials:
• miniature, subminiature
• high capacity, low wattage, low power
Materials: brass, stainless steel, aluminum, and plastic
Each of the valve body components must be compatible
with the media they are regulating.
The use of improper materials can lead to:
High capacity and enhanced performance
• Large volume systems that require
sturdy and universal flow within
• Heating and sanitary systems
Economic and compact options
• Smaller volume systems that require
more smooth and refined control of
• In confined or limited spaces
It’s recommended that solenoid valve bodies and the
internal electrical coils be interchangeable; this will
cut down on time and cost if one piece or the other
• Save time: quickly change
out pieces without needing to
stop or drain the system.
• Save money: replacement
parts will be cheaper
individually, rather than
replacing the whole unit.
A well-made solenoid valve offers fast
operation, high reliability, long service
life, and a streamlined design.
Depending on your application,
consider the following:
• Operating environment
• Body and port size
• Voltage and pressure
