Cast Iron Solenoid Valves
Explore Tameson’s wide range of 2-way cast iron solenoid valves from various global manufacturers. 2-way cast iron solenoid valves have 2 ports (an inlet and an outlet), 2 switching states (open or closed), and are electromechanically controlled. They are suitable for gasses and clean (non-viscous) media and are known for their quick response time (tenth to hundreds of milliseconds), good sealing properties, durability, and reliability. 2-way cast iron solenoid valves are used to solely start/stop the flow of media and are usually normally closed (power is required to open the valve) so that the valve remains closed in case of failure. They can also be designed as normally open (power is required to close the valve) or bi-stable (latching by staying in the most recent position with no power).
Cast iron has a very high tolerance; some cast iron can handle temperatures over 2100 degrees Fahrenheit (1150 degrees Celcius). Cast iron is extremely strong, and it is immune to vibrations. The material has excellent resistance to wear and tear and temperature tolerance. But cast iron is not ductile in nature. Hence, any bending can cause the cast iron material to crack and become useless. Cast iron solenoid valves have a much lower cost than their plastic or metal counterparts. Always ensure that the chosen material for the valve complies with the media. Additional selection criteria are but are not limited to the following: connection size, voltage, seal material, function, operation, pressure, temperature, bore size, approvals, and more. Also, there are special versions suitable for ATEX, gas approval, and medium-separate applications.
