Ultra-compact zero leak solenoid valves meet greater challenges
25 October 2015
Lee Products extended its ultra-compact, piloting solenoid valves for high pressure duties such as those in aerospace hydraulics, fuel systems and oil tools.
Saving space, reducing weight and minimising power consumption along with reliable performance, the new zero-leak piloting solenoid valve features a polymer seal and an innovative MultiSeal design which radically simplifies port layout to afford significant space savings, reduced machining costs and higher reliability compared with traditional sealing methods.
With an overall height of 47mm, a diameter of 25mm and weight of just 113g, this single coil design valve is available in both normally closed and normally open configuration with lead wires extending either end of the valve. The solenoid coil has been optimised for energy-efficiency, consuming just 7.8W at 28Vdc.
Other features include an integral safety screen with 0.10mm hole size and a captive retainer nut which means that no special tools are required for fitting. The valves are compatible with most petroleum and phosphate-ester based fluids, have an operating temperature range of -54ºC to +135ºC and are endurance tested to 500,000 cycles.
