View Tameson’s wide range of solenoid valves from various global manufacturers. A solenoid valve is an electromechanically controlled valve meant for gases and clean (non-viscous) media. Common solenoid valve types are process valves (2/2-way and 3/2-way), pulse jet, coaxial, proportional, and pneumatic solenoid valves. Solenoid valves are classified by two numbers, the first digit indicates the number of ports (inputs and outputs) and the second digit the number of states (methods of directing the media). Based on their type and design, the method for opening, closing, mixing, or diverting the media flow through the valve’s orifice(s) changes. They are common through all fluid control applications due to their quick response time (tenth to hundreds of milliseconds), good sealing properties, durability, and reliability. The operating principle to open the valve can be direct, semi-direct, or indirect, which affects if the valve needs a pressure differential to open. We have a wide selection to meet your application requirements for pressure range, temperature range, orifice size, connection style, and voltage. In addition, there is also a wide variety of housing and seal material selection, so ensure you view our chemical resistance chart to ensure that your housing and seal material are suitable for your media. Special versions like ATEX certified or medium separated valves are also available.
