RSSM-3 is currently our smallest brass bodied valve in our brass valve line. This quarter inch valve is a two-way, direct acting valve with a normally closed operating position. 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. This 1/4 inch valve works ideally with air, other pneumatic applications as well as water. It works across various other low viscosity media such as hot water, gas, diesel fuel, alcohol, kerosene, 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.
This specific valve has a port size that is 1/4” inch female NPT threaded which is US standard. The orifice size is 3mm and the CV value is 0.4. This valve is not recommended for gravity fed systems because of the small orifice size. The seal material is Viton® Rubber.
This specific valve has a 24 VDC coil with a voltage range that is -+ 10. The coil head is fitted with a 14’’ 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.
This model works best mounted in an upright position with the coil on top. The body features a stamped arrow on the valve body to indication the direction of flow. The valve body is threaded at the base and can quickly be mounted with 5mm machine screws.
Customers commonly use the RSSM-3 Valve for Water Filters, Ice Makers, Drinking Fountains, Washing Machines, Dishwashers, Dental Tools, Fish Tanks, Beer Brewing, Hydroponics, HVAC and Plumbing.

Very good products, very good service
I have a whole house humidifier that the solenoid failed. Honeywell wanted $80 for replacement. Found this company and this substitute. A quick trip to Lowes for 2 fittings and humidifier is back in business for a lot less. That combined with the design of the valve which should inhibit the problem with the original which I believe was due to too small of orafices.
The ordering, shipment and deliver process went super smooth and I will definitely use them again for any of my future solenoid needs. A+ , no surprises, picked part, ordered, delivered, and works as designed. THANK YOU.
