The APLG series solenoid valve is specifically designed for low pressure, gravity feed, liquid applications. This valve operates within a range of 0 to 3 PSI, or maximum of 3 feet of head, making it a great option for dispensing applications. The valve is configured in the normally closed position and requires power to open. Removing power will put the valve back into the closed position.
The valve body is molded from POM plastic with stainless steel internal components and an EPDM seal. The male ports are ½” NPT thread that can be connected to female NPT fittings. The valve is unidirectional which means the valve will only flow from the inlet port out through the exhaust port. An internal filter screen is pre-installed to prevent debris from entering and clogging the valve body.
This valve is perfect for low power applications because the 12V coil requires approximately 600mA to actuate. The coil can be attached with terminal connectors and has no polarity. It is fast acting and changes position in less than one second.
*This valve is not intended for applications that go beyond the 3 PSI max.
