Chemical Resistant Solenoid Valves for Aggressive Media
Chemically resistant solenoid valves that are mainly used on aggressive fluids and gases are usually manufactured from polymers. These polymers offer high resistance and the ability to operate with many different chemicals such as acids or alkalis. These durable plastic solenoids are offered in PVC (being the most commonly used material) however ABS, PVDF, Polypropylene are regularly used. The main consideration is for the medium not to penetrate the workings of the valve which is achieved by hermetically separating the valve body from the coil by using either isolating or separating diaphragms. Full data sheets should checked before ordering for chemical compatibility, pressure and temperature.
