Model APL-1/2-24VDC of our plastic valve line is a two-way, direct acting valve with a normally closed operating position. This valve flow is unidirectional through the inlet port to the exhaust. This means that there are two ports in which media flows and the valve will open when energized to allow media to pass through. Taking the energy away from the valve will close it and stop 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 0 C and as high as 50 C. 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 24 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;
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.
I'm happy with the valve. It was difficult to find a plastic valve with 1/2" NPT male threaded ends.
Closed loop water system and was wanting to put two of these on each piece of equipment. These valves allow even low pressure water to flow backwards through the valve when closed. We have a pressurized return so they do not work how I planned. They do work if only pressurized on the input side of the valve. Wish the data was more specific stating when reversed flow is present and the valve is closed pressure is allowed to pass. At the same time when the valve is open no water flow is allowed to pass in the reversed direction.
These little valves work very well. I'm very pleased in their performance.
