Solenoid Valves Overview
A solenoid valve is an electromechanically operated valve controlled by an electric current through a solenoid. In a two-port valve, the flow is switched on or off. In a three-port valve, the outflow is switched between the two outlet ports. Common uses are found in fluid power pneumatics to control cylinders, fluid power motors, or larger industrial valves. Automatic irrigation sprinkler systems also employ solenoid valves to control water flow and entry. Solenoid valves can also be seen at any fast food restaurant with a soda or water dispenser. A beverage solenoid has a diaphragm to divert fluids from gaining contact with metal components and has a low steady-state current draw. When you fill your cup up with a soda product, a beverage solenoid is at work.
At Kendrion, we manufacture a growing line of custom electromagnetic valves for various markets. Our goal is to meet your solenoid valve needs with expert precision and quality. Examples of this include our Vacuum Isolation Valve, which was designed with dosage control and fluid isolation in mind. It was designed to snap into place without the need for additional fasteners. Also important: it has improved battery operations where 100,000 cycles on 2 AA batteries is typical. One might see a valve of this type used in the beverage market. Another example is a Small Pneumatic Valve created for high pressure applications that can be mounted on a circuit board.
Whatever your solenoid valve need is, we at Kendrion are here to get the job done effectively and efficiently. Our teams of experts are on stand-by to help solve any problem you face. Check out the examples below to see what we have done to help our customers succeed!
