Model APL-1/2-12VDC of our plastic valve line is a two-way, direct acting valve with a normally closed operating position. This means that there are two ports in which media flows, the valve will open when energized and allow media to pass through. Taking the energy away from the valve will close it and stop the flow. It works across various media such as water, air, oil or other low viscosity fluids. 

The port size is 1/2” inch NPSM male threaded. It can withstand pressure up to 115 psi (8 bar) and temperatures as low as 0 C and as high as 50 C. The seal material is EPDM Rubber. This valve is capable of flowing 6.5 Gallons per minute at the max rated PSI.

This specific plastic valve has a 12 Volt DC coil with a voltage range that is -+ 10. The coil head can easily be connected with your own terminal connectors or directly soldered. Its response time is very low; in fact, it acts in less than one second, making it a great choice for all types of applications.

Common uses include but not limited to;

  • Water Filters
  • Ice Makers
  • Drinking Fountains
  • Washing Machines
  • Dishwashers
  • Dental Tools
  • Fish Tanks
  • Beer Brewing
  • Hydroponics
  • Etc.

This model is mountable in any position and features a conveniently positioned arrow on the body to indication the direction of flow. Included is a Built-in filter screen to prevent debris from entering the valve body. It comes with a 90 day replacement warranty and is ISO/CE certified, which means one does not have to worry about quality when purchasing it.

  1. works as advertized 4 Star Review

    The only problem for my application, it would not pass enough water with just gravity flow. I was using it to allow flow of hot water to a heater inside my Polaris Ace, I had to add a pump to get enough flow for heating.

  2. worked great 5 Star Review

    worked as advertised, has good flow rate, easily 4 gpm at 50 psi. Much more flow than say an ice maker solenoid valve. Used to control inlet water flow on a marine toilet.
    Will buy from this supplier again...keep the low prices....

  3. it works 3 Star Review

    The valve itself works great. The threads aren't what I expected. I didn't notice they weren't standard pipe thread which was my mistake. I couldn't get them to seal fully, and I'm an HVAC tech. I think a bunch of pipe dope would make it work.
