Our direct acting stainless solenoid valves from ACL are available with port sizes from 1/8" to 1/2" BSP. These proven all-metal poppet valves can operate over a pressure range from zero up to the valves maximum differential pressure (up to 40 bar depending on type). Our direct acting stainless steel solenoid valves feature a compact physical size and offer fast response times of typically 8-25ms for air and 12-40ms for liquids depending on viscosity and on valve type. In 1/8”G(BSP) ACL offer the normally-closed Series 111 and the normally-open Series 211 stainless steel solenoid valves. In sizes ¼” to 1/2”G(BSP) the normally-closed Series 110 and the normally-open Series 210. Depending on type and size these stainless solenoid valves will operate over a pressure range from zero to up to 40 bar, with a maximum pressure rating of up to 100bar.
Our 3-way stainless steel solenoid valves are available in normally closed, normally open and universal form. We normally stock the 3-way stainless steel solenoid valves in 1/8” and 1/4” sizes with FPM/FKM or EPDM seals, Buna (NBR) seals are available to order. Like other direct acting solenoid valves the operation of the valve depends only on the forces produced by the solenoid coil's magnetic field and the return spring acting on the valve's armature, allowing these stainless solenoid valves to operate with zero pressure. ACL offer the normally-closed, normally open and universal (valves that can be used for normally open or normally closed operation) versions of the 1/8”G(BSP) Series 311 and the ¼” Series 310 stainless steel solenoids. Depending on size these valve will operate over a pressure range from zero - 15 bar.
Servo-assisted solenoid valves generally offer the benefits of significantly lower cost and power consumption when compared with similar sized direct acting solenoid valves offering similar performance in terms of flow rate and maximum operating pressure. Because they require a minimum pressure to open the diaphragm servo-assisted valves are not generally suitable for situations where they are expected to open with zero pressure. ACL offer the normally-closed Series 177 and the normally-open Series 277 both are supplied as standard with AISI 316 stainless steel bodies with threaded port sizes from 3/8” to 1” G(BSP). Depending on size these stainless steel solenoid valves will operate over a pressure range from 0.15 - 15 bar (see datasheet).
To extend the usefulness of ACL’s stainless steel solenoid valves still further a range of options are available: Where the stainless solenoid valves are to use an a.c. supply when controlling pure water, a silver shading ring can be specified to replace the standard copper shading ring. If the valve is to be used with oxygen the valves can be factory degreased.
On request our ss solenoid valves can be supplied with coils approved to VDE or UL on selected voltages.
ATEX Approved stainless steel solenoid valves for use in hazardous or potentially areas (due to the gases, vapour or dust in the atmosphere)can be supplied fitted with ACL’s Ex m or Ex d approved solenoid coils.
With over 30 year's experience in the supply of solenoid valves and other fluid control products Beta Valve Systems can supply products from some of Europe's leading component manufacturers to meet your requirements in the areas solenoid valves, water meters, water filtration and pipe fittings.
Since 1991 we have produced our own range of solenoid valves which have been used in applications such as drinks vending industry, gas analysers, floor washers and hydroponics.
We place our customers at the centre of everything we do and strive to provide the highest quality products and service. We offer full technical support, from providing product datasheets straight from our website, to expert technical advice by email, phone or personal visit. Close ties with the manufacturers gives us direct access to our suppliers technical staff too.
To support your development or production requirements we can ship most ex-stock orders the same day from our extensive UK stocks. We also provide logistical support by holding buffer stock against call-offs and scheduled orders.
