Direct Acting Solenoid Valves

Direct acting solenoid are independent of the incoming water pressure using a diaphragm directly linked to the armature. When the coil is energised the armature lifts the seal away from valve orifice thus allowing the liquid to flow through the valve. They are supplied in normally closed and provide effective on/off control of the liquid under low pressure applications typically under 0.2 bar.

Our extensive range can be supplied with direct acting operating system in a range of standard AC and DC voltages without any change to solenoid valve external features. The robust construction ensures a long service life up to 50,000 operations subject to water quality and temperatures.

Benefits of Direct Acting Solenoid Valves

Direct acting solenoid valves are ideally suited for application in cold water dispensing or any direct tank fed application such as cold drinks dispense.

  • Ideal for negative pressure circuits.
  • Availability in compact sizes.
  • 2/2 and 3/2 way normally open or normally closed versions.
  • Miniature versions available for high pressure requirements
