Model APL-1/2-120VAC of our plastic valve line is a two-way, direct acting valve with a normally closed operating position. This means that there are two ports in which media flows and the valve will open when energized to allow media to pass through. Taking the energy away from the valve will close it and stop the flow. It works across various media such as water, air, oil or other low viscosity fluids. This valve is uni-directional and will control flow in a single direction.
The port size is 1/2” inch NPT male threaded. It can withstand pressure up to 115 psi (8 bar) and temperatures as low as 0°C and as high as 50°C. The seal material is EPDM Rubber. This valve is capable of flowing 6.5 Gallons per minute at the max rated PSI.
This specific plastic valve has a 120V AC coil with a voltage range that is -+ 10%. The coil head can easily be connected with your own terminal connectors or directly soldered. Its response time is very low; in fact, it acts in less than one second, making it a great choice for all types of applications.
