High-performance Wattimizer series solenoid valves are now available with a plastic body ideal for air, gas, and corrosive media. For many applications, plastic valve bodies offer significant value over metal-based bodies as they’re lightweight, corrosion resistant, offer a lower profile and use convenient push-to-connect fittings… all at a lower cost. These plastic bodies are CUL recognized.
The plastic valve body is approximately one-inch diameter, comes with integral 0.25-in OD tube “push-to-connect” port fittings, and has a maximum pressure rating of 125 psig at room temperature. Plastic bodies and manifolds are designed for medical, beverage, appliance, fluid power, automotive, gas, and more; and can be used in direct acting and pilot applications.
The Wattmizer is a highly efficient, miniature electric 12-V solenoid valve designed for use in compact areas requiring low power draw. These two-way and three-way solenoid valves are offered in a range of 0.65 to 9 W of continuous power, with operating pressure capacities of up to 1,200 psi (85 bar) with machined metal bodies. Note, plastic valve bodies are limited to low-pressure applications up to 125 psi.
