U.S. Solid normally closed (N/C) electric solenoid valve is constructed with a durable brass body, two-way inlet and outlet ports with one-quarter inch (1/4″) threaded (G) connections, and heat and oil resistant Viton seals.
Suitable for use with hot or cold water, gas, air, very low viscosity fluids (< 20 cst), oils and hydrocarbons, gasoline, kerosene, or diesel fuel, e.g. Suitable for outdoor use. Not for use underwater. Customers chose this general purpose valve for: do-it-yourself projects, moderate temperature applications, water exchange for aquarium, air horn, or bleeding moisture from an air tank.
