Product Overview

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

The port size is 1/2” inch NPT male threaded. It can withstand pressure up to 115 psi (8 bar) and temperatures as low as 32°F and as high as 125°F. 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
  • 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 indicate the direction of flow. Included is a Built-in filter screen to prevent debris from entering the valve body.

Ordered 3 n/o and 3 n/c had 1 dead n/o out of the box thought they would work good for marine application seeing the plastic does not corrode found it took a fair amount of pressure for flow through the valve body

The quality of the valves were good for the cost but the Valves did not work for my application which was drawing air through the valve by a vacuum as the vacuum sucked down the diaphram and closed off the valve. They would have worked if I was blowing air through the valve.
