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 15mm and Cv value is 4.8. It can withstand pressure up to 145 psi (10 bar) and temperatures as low as 15°F and as high as 250°F. The seal material is Viton.
This specific valve has a 24 Volt AC 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.

The valve arrived only a couple of days after I placed my order. Connecting it up electrically was a snap, and it works fine. It holds back my city water pressure no problem.
This item arrived within only a couple of days of my order and at no extra charge for shipping. I am an ignoramus about electronics and did not have the correct power supply to make it work, but Jim talked me through trouble shooting it and was able to help me figure this out. Once I got the right transformer for the job, it worked perfectly for my purpose.
The valves arrived immediately. Talk about fast service!
I have yet to install them in service, but the quality looks excellent.
