Product Overview

Model RSC-1 of our plastic valve line 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. It works across various media such as water, air other low viscosity fluids. 

*Consult a chemical compatibility expert for correct seal and valve body material choice.

*The Orifice size is 2.5mm and Cv value is 0.2. This valve is not recommended for gravity fed systems because of the small orifice size.

The port size is 1/8” inch female NPT threaded. The orifice size is 2.5mm and CV value is 0.21. It can withstand pressure up to 115 psi (8 bar) and temperatures as low as -5 C and as high as 90 C. The seal material is NBR (Buna-N) or Nitrile Butadiene Rubber.

This specific plastic valve has a 12 Volt DC coil with a voltage range that is -+ 10. The coil head is fitted with a 10’’ 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.

Common uses include but not limited to;

  • Water Filters
  • Ice Makers
  • Drinking Fountains
  • Washing Machines
  • Dishwashers
  • Dental Tools
  • Fish Tanks
  • Beer Brewing
  • Hydroponics
  • Etc.

This model is mountable in any position and features a conveniently positioned arrow on the body to indicate the direction of flow. The valve body is threaded at the base and can quickly be mounted with 4mm machine screws.

Been buying these for years and have never had a failure. I use them for air control.

Wiper water works again

Ordering the 1/8'' 12V DC Electric Plastic Solenoid Valve was easy and the delivery was fast. With a couple of quick connect fittings from the local hardware store and simple electrical connections, my Trawler has it's wiper water system back on line.

great for small hobby projects

This valve is great for small hobby projects. I found that it can be activated with a simple 9V battery and it retains air pressure very well. It has a extremely fast reaction time (a fraction of a second). I used this valve as part of a compressed air powered air-soft gun. It has functioned superbly. Its only down side is that it can only retain around 115 psi.
