RSSM-3 is currently our smallest brass bodied valve in our brass valve line. This quarter inch valve 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. This 1/4 inch valve works ideally with air, other pneumatic applications as well as water. It works across various other low viscosity media such as hot water, gas, diesel fuel, alcohol, kerosene, 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.

This specific valve has a port size that is 1/4” inch female NPT threaded which is US standard. The orifice size is 3mm and CV value is 0.4. This valve is not recommended for gravity fed systems because of the small orifice size. The seal material is NBR (Buna-N) or Nitrile Butadiene Rubber.

This specific valve has a 12 VDC coil with a voltage range that is -+ 10. The coil head is fitted with a 14’’ wire lead that can easily be connected with your own choice of terminals. The top of the coil features a label that indicates the valve type and specifications. 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.

This model works best mounted in an upright position with the coil on top. The body features a stamped arrow on the valve body to indication the direction of flow. The valve body is threaded at the base and can quickly be mounted with 5mm machine screws. 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.

Customers commonly use the RSSM-3 Valve for Water Filters, Ice Makers, Drinking Fountains, Washing Machines, Dishwashers, Dental Tools, Fish Tanks, Beer Brewing, Hydroponics, HVAC and Plumbing.

  7. Great product! 5 Star Review

    I installed the valve in the gasoline line of my very old winch truck, making it a hybrid so an alternative fuel can be used. It works "like a charm." Supplier had the part on order, notified me when it became available as promised! A real person was always available for information or questions. Doing business with you is a PLEASURE!
