A solenoid valve is an electromechanical device that is used to control the flow of liquids and gases. It consists of a coil wound around a movable core typically made from metal or plastic, which acts as a plunger when an electric current passes through the coil. When the solenoid valve is energised, the plunger moves up or down, opening or closing the flow of the media in the process. We offer a full range of both normally open solenoid valves and normally closed solenoid valves as well as solenoid coils and electrical connectors to suit, voltage options include 12v DC, 24v DC, and 230v AC. 
Solenoid valves come in a wide variety of materials including brass, stainless steel, and plastic, and body sizes depending on their intended application. Larger-bodied valves are designed for heavy-duty applications such as oil refineries, chemical processing plants, water treatment facilities, and irrigation systems while smaller versions are used within general factories, food and beverage companies as well as domestic appliances such as refrigerators and washing machines. Our range of solenoid valves are available with many different seal materials including, Nitrile Rubber, FKM / Viton, and EDPM to suit any application.
Solenoid valves provide several advantages for users in many different industries. These valves are preferred when precise control over fluid flow is required, as they offer accurate and reliable on-off switching of the media. Additionally, solenoid valves have low power consumption, making them an ideal choice for cost savings and energy efficiency.
Solenoid valves are also known for their durability, capable of functioning even in harsh environments with extreme temperatures and pressures. Their construction is robust enough to resist corrosion and other effects of wear and tear that may be present in the environment where they’re being used. Furthermore, some models offer variable speed operation which allows users to adjust the valve’s response time according to their specific needs. This ensures faster reaction times while saving energy since less pressure is needed to operate the valve.
