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-half inch (1/2") female threaded (NPT) connections, and nitrile rubber (NBR) gasket. Suitable for use with hot or cold water, gas, air, very low viscosity fluids (< 20 cst), oils and hydrocarbons, e.g., gasoline, kerosene, or diesel fuel. The solenoid valves have a rating of IP65, which means they can withstand spray from water. However, if permanently installed outdoors, it is recommended that you enclose the valves in some protective housing. Not for use underwater. Customers chose this general purpose valve for: do-it-yourself projects, moderate temperature applications, harsh chemicals, flow control for irrigation systems, reverse osmosis systems, or home brewing.
