How to choose the right Solenoid Valve?

How to choose the right Solenoid Valve


Solenoid valve as an indispensable executive element in industrial automation control, its selection is directly related to the operation efficiency and safety of the entire system. As a professional manufacturer of solenoid valves, we know that choosing the right solenoid valve for customers is crucial. This article will be from the type of solenoid valve, material, working environment, control mode and other aspects, for your detailed analysis of how to choose the right solenoid valve.

Direct-acting solenoid valve: suitable for small caliber, low pressure, low flow occasions, with simple structure, fast response speed.

Pilot operated solenoid valve: for large diameter, high pressure, high flow rate occasions, through the pilot valve to control the opening and closing of the main valve, with a large flow rate, the advantages of small pressure loss.

Proportional solenoid valve: according to the size of the input signal to continuously adjust the valve opening, to achieve precise control of the flow, suitable for occasions that require continuous adjustment of the flow.

When selecting the type of solenoid valve, full consideration should be given to the system’s flow, pressure, caliber and other parameters, as well as the system’s control accuracy requirements.

Ⅲ. Solenoid valve material selection

Solenoid valve material is directly related to its corrosion resistance and service life. Common solenoid valve materials are stainless steel, brass, plastic and so on. Stainless steel solenoid valve has excellent corrosion resistance, suitable for corrosive media; brass solenoid valve for general water, gas media; plastic solenoid valve has a light weight, low cost, suitable for occasions where the material requirements are not high.

In the choice of solenoid valve material, should be based on the nature of the medium, the requirements of the working environment, as well as cost and other factors for comprehensive consideration.

Ⅳ. Solenoid valve working environment considerations

  • Temperature: solenoid valve operating temperature range is one of its important performance indicators. In the selection of solenoid valves, should ensure that the operating temperature range of the selected solenoid valve to meet the system requirements.
  • Humidity: For solenoid valves used in humid environments or outdoors, models with moisture-proof and water-proof features should be selected to ensure their normal operation.
  • Vibration and shock: for the existence of vibration and shock occasions, should choose the solenoid valve with anti-vibration, shock resistance to ensure its stability and reliability.

V. Solenoid valve control mode selection

Manual control: for simple control needs, such as manually switching valves.

Electromagnetic control: drive the valve to open and close by electromagnetic force, suitable for automation control system.

Intelligent control: combined with sensors, controllers, etc. to realize the intelligent control of solenoid valves, such as remote monitoring, automatic adjustment.

When selecting the control mode, it should be based on the system’s control needs and technology level for comprehensive consideration.

VI. Solenoid valve flow and pressure characteristics

In the selection of solenoid valves, in addition to considering its type, material and working environment, but also need to pay attention to its flow and pressure characteristics. Flow characteristics determine the solenoid valve in a unit of time through the amount of media, while the pressure characteristics reflect the solenoid valve in the performance of different pressures.

Flow characteristics: according to the flow requirements of the system, select the solenoid valve with appropriate flow characteristics. If the system requires a large flow, the solenoid valve should be selected with good flow characteristics to ensure the normal operation of the system.

Pressure characteristics: the pressure characteristics of the solenoid valve include rated working pressure, maximum working pressure and minimum working pressure. In the selection of solenoid valves, should ensure that the selected solenoid valve operating pressure range to meet the system requirements, and has a certain pressure margin to ensure the safety of the system.

VII. Solenoid valve interface and connection

The interface and connection of the solenoid valve is also an important factor to consider when selecting. Different systems and equipment may require different types of interfaces and connections.

  • Interface type: common solenoid valve interface has a threaded interface, flange interface, clamp interface and so on. When selecting a solenoid valve, the appropriate interface type should be selected according to the interface requirements of the system.
  • Connection: solenoid valve connection methods include direct connection, flange connection, clamp connection, etc.. In the choice of connection, should consider the installation space of the system, sealing requirements and ease of maintenance and other factors.

Solenoid valve as a key component of the system, its maintenance and maintenance for the normal operation of the system is critical. In the selection of solenoid valves, should pay attention to the convenience of its maintenance and maintenance.

Cleaning and Maintenance: Regularly clean the solenoid valve internal and external impurities and dirt to maintain its cleanliness. At the same time, lubricate and maintain the solenoid valve as necessary to extend its service life.

Troubleshooting and Diagnosis: Understand the common faults of solenoid valves and their elimination methods, so that when a fault occurs, you can quickly locate and solve the problem. In addition, should also pay attention to the solenoid valve maintenance cycle and maintenance costs and other factors.

Ⅸ. Summary and recommendations

Choosing the right solenoid valve needs to consider a number of factors, including type, material, operating environment, control mode, flow and pressure characteristics, interface and connection, maintenance and repair, as well as brand and after-sales service. As a professional manufacturer of solenoid valves, we suggest that when you choose a solenoid valve, you fully consider the actual needs of the system and the requirements of the working environment, and choose a solenoid valve product with stable performance, reliable quality and easy maintenance. At the same time, we are also willing to provide you with professional technical support and selection advice to help you choose the most suitable solenoid valve products for your system.
