2-way Solenoid Valves - On/Off solenoid valves for air, water and other fluids for controlling fluid flow and for piloting other larger valves are equipped with energy saving coils to extend service life.
Multiphysics simulation can lead to considerable success in the design and optimization of linear control solenoid valves. To obtain the linearity of the linear control solenoid valve, the effects of various design parameters on the dynamic behaviors of the valve should be analyzed by a multiphysics simulation coupled with a 1-DOF system.
The current rising speed of the electromagnet determines the dynamic characteristics of the micro solenoid valve. The faster the current rising speed, the better the dynamic characteristics.
The figure 5 shows tubes that are used to connect the shut off solenoid valve and the fuel injection system.
Aside from temperature control accuracy of the cooling water, the durability of the solenoid valve for by-pass control is another concern.
Abstract: This paper deals with arm position simulation of the PAM based actuator consisting of two pneumatic artificial muscles (PAMs) in antagonistic connection and four solenoid valves (two for muscles ,filling and two for muscles emptying).
The company noted that the new funding is in addition to the contribution agreement entered into with NRCan last October for amounts payable during 2003 and 2004 fiscal periods totaling $484,400 for the development and certification of a 350-bar (about 5,000 psi) hydrogen solenoid valve and regulator solutions.
The Norgren system includes a new proportional solenoid valve and a diaphragm actuator.
Lexair, Inc., is offering a UL-listed, explosion-proof, 3-way normally closed solenoid valve. The company says the valve is designed to meet control application challenges in hazardous locations such as meter facilities.
