Product Overview

Model 2W-160-10 of our brass valve line 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 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 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 3/8” inch female NPT threaded. This Electric Solenoid Valve can handle low viscosity fluids below 20 cst. The orifice size is 15mm and the Cv value is 4.8. It can withstand pressure up to 115 psi (8 bar) and temperatures as low as 15°F and as high as 250°F. The seal material is FKM or Viton Rubber.

This specific valve has a 12 Volt DC 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.

This model is mountable in any position and features a conveniently positioned arrow on the body to indication the direction of flow..

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

Exactly what was described, fast and free shipping. Fair value, medium priced, medium quality. This valve has only been installed for two weeks. Durability has yet to be determined.

excellent product

I purchased this valve with the 2 day USPS shipping. It arrived on the second day. Remarkable for the Postal Service. The valve has a yellow brass body, appears to have stainless steel fasteners and metal electro magnetic controller. Connecting wires are 6" long and tinned. Electrical specifications/mechanical clearly are shown on top of the magnit. There is a flow direction molded into the valve body. ISO 9001-2000. Country of manufacturing not shown. First rate. Workmanship. I do recommend this valve.
