  • Choose the Right Valve for the Job

    Did you know that not all solenoid valves are created equal? The number and volt ratings on a solenoid valve have meaning, and should not be ignored. Solenoid valves come with different number ratings between 9 and over 240. These different numbers indicate the amount of pressure and water that the valve and take in, and the amount of energy that it takes to operate the valve properly. Follow the voltage requirements on your valve carefully to avoid a huge disaster when you operate your valve. Solenoid valves can regulate...

  • Gas Solenoid Valves and Safety

    Modern home appliances are constructed with the safety of the home and the homeowner in mind. Some electrical appliances have built-in electrical surge protectors, while other appliances have will have special functions that keep you from using some aspects of the appliance while others are engaged. My friend's refrigerator has a feature where if you have the freezer door open, you cannot engage the ice maker. This will prevent you from possibly getting your hand caught in the machinery that pushes the ice down into the door. In the case...

  • The Gaseous Media of Solenoid Valves

    What a solenoid valve may control is just as fascinating as how the mechanism is able to control it. It just so happens that solenoid valves are able to control the flow of a wide variety of substances, so wide that discussing the media should be narrowed down to a specific one, such as gas. Gas solenoid valves are utilized in many systems that process gaseous media or utilize them to achieve a certain goal, such as powering the operation of a device within a marine vehicle or a food...

  • Cryogenic Solenoid Valves: A Surgical Tool

    One of my favorite shows is Grey's Anatomy, not only because of the steamy drama that plays out between the characters every episode but also because of the way the show portrays surgery and the intensity that goes with that skill. The idea of holding someone's life in my hand is more then I can handle, but I am so thankful that there are individuals out there who are able to do it everyday and do it well. Part of the reason surgeons are so successful is the vast spectrum...

  • Gas Solenoid Valves: One Piece of the Natural Gas Puzzle

    Gas solenoid valves are able to control the flow of a variety of different gases, depending on the material they are built with and their design. Functioning much like other solenoid valves, they are set-up to open or close a chamber door within whatever system they are apart of to release the pressure or stop the flow. Gas solenoid valves are one style of gas valve that is very important to a particularly significant substance vital to many industries; natural gas. This substance is one that our society depends on...

  • MultiMFC Gas Box with Touchscreen Display

    The MultiMFC Gas Box incorporates precision gas metering, flexible configuration, the latest network communication technology, and a simple user interface. The modular system comprises an intuitive touchscreen display that includes a prominent system status LED which indicates the operational condition of the controller according to NAMUR standard NE107. The sensor housing module can be equipped with a variety of mass flow controllers (MFCs) and includes gas port connections and a polycarbonate window to enable sight of the LED status lights on the MFCs. With such a range of measurement sensors...

Industry Information

Gas Solenoid Valves

Gas solenoid valves are one of the most common flow control valves that handles and controls the flow of gaseous media. Gas solenoid valves control the flow of gases through tubes as regular valves do, but unlike other valves, gas solenoid valves can be controlled remotely. Most often pneumatic, additional actuation methods for gas solenoid valves include electric and electro-pneumatic. Compared to actuation methods such as hydraulic power, pneumatic power is considered cleaner and lower maintenance.

Typical gaseous media that gas solenoid valves control include air, nitrogen, argon, oxygen, hydrogen, liquefied petroleum and natural gas. Offering low control power, gas solenoid valves are used in a wide range of industries such as automotive, aerospace, oil and gas, commercial, agricultural, food processing, medical, semiconductor and marine. Gas solenoid valves can be made from either plastics or metallic elements and alloys, with the more common materials including brass, PVC, polypropylene, PTFE, aluminum, copper, bronze, steel, cast iron, ductile iron, and stainless steel. Gas solenoid valves come in a wide range of sizes, with a compact design that offers fewer moving parts than most regular valves. In addition, gas solenoid valves offer fast and safe switching, long service lives, high reliability and good medium compatibility of the materials used.

Operated electromechanically by a solenoid, which is a magnetized coil activated by electrical charges, gas solenoid valves control the flow of gases precisely through targeted electrical charges, sensor cue or by hysteresis (device memory). Gas solenoid valves can be either a normally closed (NC) valve or a normally open (NO) valve. In a NC valve, a plunging pin or rod within the valve is held blocking the passage of air in a solenoid coil; the air pressure coming into the valve helps keep the valve shut as long as the pin blocks the passage. In order for gas to flow through the valve, an electromagnetic charge is run through the solenoid coil, which becomes active and lifts the plunger out of the passage and allows flow through the entire valve. NO valves are the opposite; they remain open until the solenoid is activated and pushes down the plunger, blocking flow and creating pressure to keep the valve closed. Gas solenoid valve manufacturers make two common types of valves: direct-acting and pilot-operated. Direct-acting gas solenoid valves have a plunger that is in direct contact with the in-flow opening in the valve body, or orifice. This plunger is used to open and close the orifice, which permits or hinders flow. The pilot-operated gas solenoid valve works with a diaphragm rather than a plunger, using differential pressure to control the flow of gases. In pilot-operated valves there is a solenoid-operated vent which is opened to allow the pressure to equalize, permitting gases to flow through the diaphragm in the valve's larger chamber.
