All blue cap valves are designed with new polymer formula engineered to withstand 20% more tightening torque without cracking the polymer body. U.S. Solid Normally Closed Electric Solenoid Valve;
1/4" ports, engineering plastic(Nylon) body, nitrile rubber (NBR) seal, 12 volt DC, for air, water
U.S. Solid normally closed (N/C) electric solenoid valve is constructed with a Nylon, engineering plastic body, two-way inlet and outlet ports with one-quarter inch (1/4") female threaded (NPT) connections. Nitrile rubber (NBR) gasket.
The coil uses direct current and energizes at 12 volts DC; voltage range + or - 10%. 4.8 Watt power rating.
Direct lift valve operates from 0 PSI to a maximum pressure of 145 PSI (0 MPa to 1.0 MPa). Operational pressure range for water: 0 to 101 PSI; for oil: 0 to 72 PSI; for air or gases: 0 to 101 PSI.
1/4" (2.5 mm) flow aperture permits a unidirectional flow capacity of 0.23 gallons per minute (GPM) of water at 60oFwith a pressure drop of 1 PSI (0.23 Cv).
Operational temperature range is 23 to 176 degrees Fahrenheit; -5 to +80 degrees Celsius. Suitable for outdoor use; not suitable for underwater.
Suitable for use with hot or cold water, air, very low viscosity fluids (< 20 cst). NOT design for use with gasoline or organic solvents. Valve is not intended to be energized continuously for more than 8 hours. This can lead to burnout of the coil, and malfunctioning of the valve. In cases where this is necessary, it is recommended user install a computer fan to keep valve cool.
Customers chose this general purpose valve for: do-it-yourself projects, moderate temperature applications, water exchange for aquarium, air horn, or bleeding moisture from an air tank.
