Valves Steam/Heated Water - Solenoid Valve
A selection of 2 and 3 port solenoid process valves designed for steam and heated water applications.
The VX2 for steam (up to 183 °C) is available with brass and stainless steel body. Three body sizes are available, with port size ranges from 1/8 to 1/2 inch. High temperature FKM seal and Class H coil insulation are standard. Flow rate ranges from Cv of 0.23 to 2.21.
The VXZ series for heated water is a 2 port, pilot operated solenoid valve capable of operating at higher differential pressures by maintaining a zero differential pressure on the seat. The molded coil offers low power consumption, long life and high reliability. FKM seal and Class H coil insulation type are standard. Available for port size 1/4 to 1 inch. Flow rate ranges from Cv of 1.9 to 10.2
VXS 2 port solenoid valve for steam is compact and lightweight, designed to operate with no need for differential pressure. The VXS is considerably quieter than similar valves due to its special construction and full wave rectifier type solenoid. A piston main valve and special FKM material for both the valve and seal help reduce internal leakage to 1.0 cm³/min or less, and improve life cycle and valve reliability. The VXS valve series is RoHS compliant and meets IP65 enclosure guidelines.
SMC's updated VXD series for heated water (up to 99°C) is a pilot operated, 2 port solenoid valve. Standard EPDM seal material and Class H coil insulation to suit the high fluid temperature application. Available in brass and stainless steel. Flow rate ranges from Cv of 1.9 to 49
The VX3 series is a direct operated, 3 port solenoid valve, for use with a wide variety of fluids. It has an enclosure equivalent to IP65 and with its special construction, metal noise is reduced (DC specification). Flow rate ranges from Cv of 0.08 to 0.38.
