Buy Solenoid Valve 12 Volt

The solenoid valve, like other similar, standard valves, can either be single-threaded, 2-way threaded, 3-way threaded, 4-way threaded or five way threaded referring to the number of inputs and outputs (entrances and exits) the valves have. 3-Way solenoid valves are for hydraulic and pneumatic applications. 3-Way solenoid valves have three ports, one being the pressure port, one the tank and the last, the service port.

Solenoid valves are devices that use a solenoid to control valve activation. Control solenoid valves are most commonly used to transfer air and other gases, liquids, hot water and steam, and hydraulic fluids. Application ratings are often applied to these valves to denote specific services for which they may be used like control solenoid valve and solenoid valve coil. One of the products available of solenoid valve 12 volt is Solenoid Option for BA Series Valve. CROSS is pleased to announce the addition of a solenoid option for the 30 Gallon 3000 psi Series BA valve. Available in 12 or 24 volts DC, or 120 or 240 volts AC, This feature offers the convenience and remote control capabilities of electrical operation with the load check advantages of the BA Valve for lifting applications. The Skinner Valve Actuation Series includes a variety of 3- and 4-way solenoid valves designed with unique features and options enhancing their performance, operational reliability and application versatility. The valves are used as pilots for pneumatic valve actuators in a variety of processing industries.

Important items to consider when looking at solenoid valves are proportionality, linearity, frequency response, repeatability, power consumption, leakage, life expectancy and cost. With so many types of solenoid and related valves, the application requirements are very important.


Solenoid valves are components that use a solenoid to manage activation of a valve. The solenoid found within the valve is an electromagnetically inductive coil wrapped around a mobile metal slug which moves backward and forward inside the coil to produce a current. Solenoid valves are controlled by the electromagnetism produced by this motion; they are used in fluid power pneumatic and hydraulic systems to control motors, cylinders or larger valves. They are found in a number of machines commonly utilized in both large and small scale industrial and commercial settings. Such machines include, but are not limited to, air conditioning and heating units, refrigeration systems and washing machines. Because of the wide variety of valves available and the range of uses for machines that rely on them, there are many factors that must be considered before selecting a valve. There are five basic types of solenoid valve, differentiated by the number of inputs and outputs (entrances and exits) present: single-threaded, 2-way threaded, 3-way threaded, 4-way threaded and 5-way threaded. Valves are given application ratings that denote the type of activity for which they can effectively be used. The 3-way solenoid valve, consisting of a pressure port, tank and service port, is typically used in hydraulic and pneumatic applications. This is a valve that is often found in ubiquitous machines that are in regular use, such as dishwashers or coffee makers.

Among available 12 volt solenoid valves is the solenoid option for the BA Series valve. CROSS has announced the release of a solenoid option for the 30 gallon 3000 psi BA Series valve. This valve comes in both 120 or 240 volts AC and 12 or 24 volts DC. It provides the ease of use and remote control capabilities of electrical operation while also maintaining the load check advantages of the BA valve, useful in lifting applications. For 3-way threaded and 4-way threaded solenoid valves with high reliability and versatility, a good option is the Skinner Valve Actuation Series. These are common pneumatic valve actuator pilots in the processing industry.

Though there are many different types of valve, purchasing decisions can be guided by careful consideration of potential valve use. Whether the valve will be included in commercial HVAC machinery or utilized in a major industrial setting, life expectancy needs, budgetary limitations and available power can all vary. Schools, nursing homes and office buildings may have very different needs than more energy consumptive enterprises like hospitals or hotels. And a solenoid valve that is right for an air handler, chiller or heat pump may not be suitable for industrial valve controls. Always take the time to consider the range of options and potential use. And it is a good idea to purchase spares as most machines that contain these valves will malfunction when the solenoid valve fails.
