ASCO Solenoid Valve Engineering Information and Reference Guide

ASCO Solenoid Valve
A solenoid valve is a combination of two basic functional units: a solenoid (electromagnet) with its core; and a valve body containing one or more orifices. Flow through an orifice is shut off or allowed by the movement of the core when the solenoid is energized or de-energized.

Solenoid valves come in a wide variety of sizes, port configurations, coil styles, coil voltages, materials and configurations. Proper selection for any given application can be confusing. This solenoid engineering guide is intended to offer the reader/specifier assistance in selecting the correct solenoid valve for the application.
