Product Overview

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 115 psi and temperatures as low as 15°F and as high as 250°F. The seal material is VITON Rubber. 

This specific valve has a 12 Volt DC coil with a voltage range that is -+ 10. The coil head is fitted with a 5’’ 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.

Customers commonly use the 2W-160-15 Valve for Irrigation, Fountains, Water Filtration, Solar Heating, Aquariums, Automotive, Beer Brewing, Hydroponics, HVAC, and Plumbing and everywhere else one of our valves can be applied.

This model is mountable in any position and features a conveniently positioned arrow on the body to indication the direction of flow. 

*Consult a chemical compatibility expert for correct seal and valve body material choice.

12 Volt Solenoid

Posted by Mark O Matic on 12th Jul 2017

Installed Normally Closed valve outside of RV water tank to allow draining without crawling under unit. Valve does get quite warm, but is continuous duty, and I have allowed ample free space around it. One side is nippled right into tank 1/2" NPT port, and plastic nipple extends from valve to outside of tank enclosure. It drains more quickly than factory hand valve, since there are no restrictions. I carry a 1/2" NPT cap just in case valve would fail in "Open" position. So far , so good.

I installed a new fresh water pump. It was a high-pressure pump on a yacht and the old windshield is wiper fresh water valve could not hold the pressure and would let the water through. I bought this one and it works great, nicely built and heavy duty.

Good quality for price
