Our APLG line of solenoid valves cater to projects requiring a drain valve for gravity feed applications. This valve is ideal for draining tanks or other gravity feed setups that will not go beyond the 3 PSI maximum. The valve is unidirectional and thus only allows the fluid to flow in one direction. On the body of the valve there is a directional arrow to indicate proper flow for correct installation. This valve line also features internal components are stainless steel as well as male ports that are ½” NPT thread and are able to connect to female NPT fittings. The body is molded from POM plastic body and fitted with an EPDM seal. The APLG line all have a pre-installed filter that helps prevent detritus from entering and damaging the valve.
This line is designed specifically for low pressure with minimal power draw. The pressure range is 0-3PSI. The power draw is only 6 watts for the 24VAC coil to actuate. It is also ideal for draining low viscous fluids in low pressure systems. *This valve will not operate with pressures outside of these perimeters and intended to be used with liquids.
The default position of this valve is normally closed. With normally closed valves they will need power to actuate and once the power has been removed the valve will return to its default position of normally closed. While the valve does not require a lot of power to actuate it will still change positions in under one second once power is given to or removed from the valve.
