Hydraulic Solenoid Valves
Hydraulic solenoid valves are electrically operated devices that control the flow of liquids. Hydraulic solenoid valves are made from a wire coil and a movable plunger set against the coil. They are used for the remote control of valves for directional control of liquids.

Design of Hydraulic Solenoid Valves
Hydraulic solenoid valves have two main parts: the solenoid and the valve. The solenoid, a wire coil, converts electrical energy into mechanical energy. When the wire coil receives a current, a magnetic field acts upon the plunger, resulting in the valve's opening or closing. As well as being a subcategory of hydraulic control valves, solenoid valves are also directly related to electric hydraulic valves. These electric valves are computer controlled and therefore require no manual interference once they are set up, so they are often utilized in hard-to-reach systems. Unlike solenoid valves, which may be encased in a square house but are not always, electric valves protect their inner electronics thus. Hydraulic solenoid valves specifically can be made of a variety of materials, including brass, stainless steel, and polypropylene. Solenoid valves are compact and reliable. They can be found in components utilized for various aerospace, automobile, military, and construction uses. They are also found in basic everyday items, such as controlling the water going in and out of the drum of a washing machine and irrigation systems that bring water into city houses and suburbs.
Applications of Hydraulic Solenoid Valves
Hydraulic valves hold and transfer the flow and pressure of hydraulic fluid in a hydraulic system. The most common genre is the hydraulic control valves, which monitor how much of the liquid flow is going through what chambers at once, ensuring that there is no overflow or leakage. Such an event could be very dangerous to the equipment, the workers in the area, and the environment, depending on the substance moving through the hydraulic system. The liquids and gasses that pass through hydraulic valves, such as solenoid valves, depend on the context; they can range from thick liquids such as oil in petroleum refineries to various gasses in chemical processing plants to thin liquids like water in a water treatment plant. Many materials may be used to produce control valves, although certain metals and plastics are better for some industries than others. For example, a thermoplastic such PVC is going to be cheaper than a metal valve but will only be appropriate for applications that do not require extreme corrosive resistance. Metals such as aluminum and stainless steel, which are very flexible and lightweight, are ideal for most applications, although occasionally, a heavier and sturdier metal, such as iron, is required.
