Product Description

Featured here is Model 2W-160-15 of our brass valve line. This particular valve is a two-way, semi-direct lift valve with a normally closed operating position. This means that there are two ports in which media flows, the valve will open when the coil is energized and allow media to pass through. Removing the energy from the valve coil will close it and stop the flow. It works across various media such as hot water, air, gas, diesel fuel, Freon, weak acids and weak alkali. The valve features a heavy duty, solid brass body that’s sure to last in the most strenuous projects.

The port size is 1/2” inch female NPT threaded. This Electric Solenoid Valve can handle low viscosity fluids below 20 cst. The orifice size is 16mm and Cv value is 4.8. It can withstand pressure up to 145 psi (10 bar) and temperatures as low as 15°F and as high as 265°F. The seal material is VITON Rubber.

  1. inexpensive solenoid 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 21st Dec 2016

    used this solenoid to shut water on and off in an apple washing conveyor. The conveyor has an automatic shut off system so the system turns on and off frequently. This works great, water is now off when not needed instead of running continually. Plenty of flow and works instantly

  2. Control heat withdrawal from thermal mass 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 7th Dec 2016

    I got a normally open and a normally closed valve. when I energize the valves, the glycol flows through the rock pile and heats the floor in my home. When I de-energize, the glycol just circulates in the slab.

    Works greatt. My wife has trouble shuting an turning on water valves,,now all she dies is flip a swtch...

  4. Applied as a vacuum control 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 23rd Jun 2016

    I applied this to control high vacuum. There was some question if it would work and if it would be fast. So far, the response is near instantaneous and the shutoff of solid and quick. In my application there is the likelihood of contaminants getting in the vacuum stream. These contaminants will be gaseous and viscous so we will see how these stand up.
    The price is much lower than valves with similar CV and the competing valves get into trouble with the viscous gasses and require lots of maintenance.
    I will respond as these get some hours on them.

  5. Lawn sprinkler control 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 27th Apr 2016

    I'm using this to supply water to a manifold with four timers. This will stop the water after the timers complete their cycles. Just insurance if a timer would fail.

  6. Excellent quality solenoid valve. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 25th Nov 2015

    I used this solenoid valve to stop a small leak in my garage air hose real that I only use now and then for air. I mounted next to the compressor manual shut off in the back of my garage, now I just flip a switch next to my bench when I need air, no more hassle with the small leak causing my 60 gallon air compressor to run for ten minutes in order to have compressed air. Works perfectly.

  7. Good valve; in expensive and does the job 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 6th Oct 2015

    My BBQ is natural gas fired and I sometimes forget to turn it off when done cooking. With a propane bottle that is a lost bottle fill with a gas fired BBQ that can be big dollars if left on for days. This valve with a timer will pay for itself in just one forgetful moment.
    The valve works just as it should and the price was very good.

  8. Original Solenoids 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Aug 2015

    After receiving the valves and pulling the old ones, we realized that these were similar in all aspects to the original ones. We are very happy with them and will order some more before end of year

  9. Apparently, lower cost DOESN'T mean giving up value with these valves. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 12th Feb 2015

    Installed easily (no threading problems), coil works fine first time - every time, valve positively shuts off when power is removed from the coil (this is a N/C valve used in tap-water-filling a residential steam boiler)...

    Hopefully it is as long lived as it is functional!

    Glad you guys showed up on the search engine... you provide a lot of bang for the buck!

  10. great quality, solidly built 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 30th Nov 2014

    Purchased to use on a propane smokehouse as an extra safety valve that would shut off the gas if the power goes out. Super fast delivery. Well pleased.
