Ultra-compact, energy efficient solenoid valves save space and reduce weight

Lee Products has recently extended its range of ultra-compact, field-proven piloting solenoid valves which are ideal for challenging, high pressure duty such as those occurring in aerospace hydraulics, fuel systems and oil tool applications. Saving space, reducing weight and minimising power consumption along with reliable performance, are the important benefits of Lee's piloting solenoid valves and this new option continues that objective.

This new Zero Leak Solenoid Valve features a polymer seal to ensure zero leakage and an innovative MultiSeal design which radically simplifies port layout and means significant space savings, reduced machining costs and higher reliability compared to traditional sealing methods.

With an overall height of 47mm, a diameter of 25mm and weighing just 113 grams this single coil design valve is available in both normally closed and normally open configuration with lead wires extending either end of the valve. The solenoid coil has been optimised to ensure energy-efficiency consuming just 7.8 Watts at 28 Vdc.

Other features include an integral safety screen with 0.10 mm hole size and a captive retainer nut which means that no special tools are required for fitting. The valves are compatible with most petroleum and

phosphate-ester based fluids, have an operating temperature range of -65ºF to +275ºF and are endurance tested to 500,000 cycles.
