Plastic Solenoid Valves
Explore Tameson’s wide range of 2-way plastic solenoid valves from various global manufacturers. 2-way plastic 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 plastic 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).
2-way plastic solenoid valves are widely used across all industries due to their chemical resistance and low cost (compared to metal housings). PVC is the most common type of plastic used in solenoid valves. But it is important to understand the characteristics of your media to choose the right material for the solenoid valve. PVC solenoid valves are suitable for corrosive and non-corrosive media (seawater, most acids and bases, salt solutions, and organic solvents) and are budget-friendly. However, plastic solenoid valves typically have lower pressure and temperature ratings than their metal counterparts. The plastic options available for solenoid valves are listed below:
- Polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF)
- Teflon (PTFE)
- Polypropylene (PP)
- Polyamide (PA)
- Polyvinyl chloride (PVC)
Always ensure that the chosen material complies with the media by referring to our chemical resistance chart. 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.
