  • Pneumatic Solenoid Valves: A Plethora of Applications

    Although pneumatic and solenoid are not words that must be paired together, since some pneumatic valves are not solenoid and some solenoid valves are pneumatic, they are still a very common combination in the valve world. Because the pneumatic solenoid valve is such a popular style, it is a good model to highlight the variety of applications and industries solenoid valves are utilized within. It is amazing that such a small mechanism, made up of only a few tiny parts, can be so vital to such a plethora of contexts....

  • What's in a Pneumatic Solenoid Valve?

    I've been writing about industrial products and processes for a while now, and few topics have eluded my understanding more effectively than solenoids. Nothing about the word solenoid gives away anything about what a solenoid is or does, at least not in the way that the words aluminum tube or overhead crane or conveyor betray meaning. When the regular dictionary's definition isn't enough (it's an electric conductor wound as a helix with small pitch, or as two or more coaxial helices, so that current through the conductor establishes a magnetic...

  • The Science of Solenoid Valves

    The science behind the term solenoid is fundamental to understanding how a solenoid valve works. Regardless of which style, be it pneumatic, gas or electric or miniature or latching, all solenoid valves function by way of the same scientific principles. According to physics a solenoid is a long wire, very thin and coiled around a metallic core. This structure is able to produce a magnetic field when electricity passes through it. It is this simple process built on a simple structure of thin coiled metal that allows solenoid valves to...

  • Koganei's 005 Series is the World's Smallest Valve

    Humphrey Products and their affiliated company, Koganei have created a light-weight, low-power Solenoid Valve that is the world’s smallest to date. The new Micro 3-port 005 Series from Koganei, measures 5.9mm (0.232 in) wide, making it the ideal choice for device and equipment miniaturization. The 005 Series is ultra compact and low mass weighing 4.5 g (0.159 oz) and can be mounted, as standard, in two orientations to match your piping direction. Adding and subtracting valves to a uniquely designed, split manifold is easy. Integral barbed ports make installation...

  • Mini Valves in the Medical World

    Solenoid valves help control the movement of liquids between different valves and pumps. The valves are important in many different industries, but perhaps there is no more important use for the valves than in the medical industry. In the medical industry, miniature solenoid valves are extremely important for controlling a variety of medical equipment, including life support systems and fluid removal systems that help keep people alive when they are sick. The medical industry uses a variety of special purpose valves in addition to general purpose valves for medical equipment,...

  • Plastic Solenoid Valves versus Metal

    The popularity of both metallic based and plastic based solenoid valves is undeniable. So why does an individual company or manufacturer choose one over the other? By considering the same elements involved in the plastic versus metal debate for any industrial project or product. Which one will work the best, for the longest time and with the smallest amount of maintenance and therefore cost invested? Or is it best to combine the two materials and make one dynamic solenoid valve? One point in favor of plastic is that it is...

Industry Information

Pneumatic Valves

Pneumatic solenoid valves regulate the flow of air and gas using diaphragms and gas pressure. A solenoid is a metal coil which can be magnetized into an electromechanical device, moving valve parts when triggered electrically. Not all pneumatic valves are controlled by solenoids, but those that are solenoid are controlled remotely through sensors, electrical triggers or hysteresis (programmable device memory).

The many different types of solenoid valves have varied configurations and actuation methods. Pneumatic solenoid valves are one of the most common types and are used to regulate the flow of air and other gases through the use of diaphragms and gas pressure. While some pneumatic valves regulate air or gas flow at relatively normal pressures, other pneumatic valves are designed to output gas at extremely high pressures. Pneumatic valves can also be referred to as gas solenoid valves, solenoid air valves or just air valves. Pneumatic solenoid valves are used widely for many different industries, and applications may include compressed air-powered tools such as jackhammers and nail guns, vacuums, ventilation systems, laser printers, medical and dental air-powered equipment. Because strong force can be largely self-generated within pneumatic valve chambers, pneumatic valves are valued for their low energy requirement. Pneumatic air valves are also considered cleaner and lower maintenance than many fluid valves.

Many industries rely on proportional solenoid valves to accurately regulate fluid, gas and air flow to and from components in a wide range of applications. These valves may be constructed from plastic or metal such as stainless steel. Pneumatic air valves are convenient for multiple-line valves, since air can be easily compressed and directed to different outlets. Solenoid pilots make applications like space heating easy to automate, activate or trigger remotely. Another variable is the power source, such as a 12 volt battery. Pneumatic valves that use solenoids are often called "piloted valves” since they are actually a combination of a pneumatic valve and a small piloting solenoid vent chamber. The pneumatic valve chamber is designed similarly to normal pneumatics chambers, with a diaphragm sealing the valve with the help of air pressure within the input chamber; the solenoid operates a small vent chamber, venting the chamber when triggered and causing the pneumatic chamber to change pressure and allow flow. The pneumatic solenoid valve functions through changes in gas pressure activated remotely by the solenoid. While some pneumatic valves regulate air or gas flow at relatively normal pressures, such as in home heating and cooling, other pneumatic valves are designed to output gas at extremely high pressures. These types of high-pressure releasing valves are often used in equipment such as jackhammers, guns, riveters and water jet cutting.
