Solenoid Valves Fundamentals Explained

Solenoid valves for water irrigation systems are the valves that open and close to allow water to pass through an irrigation system. These valves are often referred to as electromagnetic valves or electro water valves because the valve is controlled by electrical signals. These Water Control valves may work with hydraulic actuators (also referred to as hydraulic pilots).  They come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and can be controlled in many ways. The flow control and pressure of such valves are why they are in such demand for irrigation. Solenoid Valves open and close to make a system work. When a system stops working properly, you may be in need of a new solenoid valve. 

Solenoid Valves are Electrical Valves.

Indirect valves are also referred to as servo-controlled valves. Indirect solenoid valves may be used only for a single flow direction. Four-way solenoid valves can likewise be helpful in operating valves that have two solenoids inside them.

Water irrigation system valves can become complicated and hiring a professional team to service them is recommended. At All American Sprinkler, we will keep your valves in working order to keep your water system running smoothly!

When a solenoid valve is actuated, the valve is going to move into the open or closed position. Be advised that a latching solenoid won’t work with a typical irrigation controller. Therefore, if you’d like an actuator that doesn’t overheat readily, our team can provide the pneumatic one. When installing pneumatic actuators, you can trust the installation to be done properly by a professional at All American! 

If you’re concerned with the component costs of maintaining an irrigation valve, then you will be happy to know that this cost is typically not as expensive as you may think. The main concern for electrical valves is the components that make them up. The solenoid plunger is directly linked to the membrane and, on occasion, a gate valve can be seized open or closed.

Irrigation valves are very susceptible to breaking if debris gets into the line. In many cases, the lines can become clogged when sediment works its way into the moving components, seizing them up. Filters are a vital part of any irrigation system. It is important to have the filters within your system checked periodically to ensure adequate water flow and keep your system running smoothly! 

When discussing residential or commercial sprinkler systems, irrigation valves are a component that should not be overlooked. They are the heart of the system and direct the water to the different zones as schedules by the controller. If you are noticing areas within your lawn that look underwatered, brown, or dry, that zone may not be receiving an adequate supply of water. Conversely, if a zone seems to be drowning or over saturated, we can help!

Generic Electrical Valve vs. Solenoid Valve Switches

Electrical valves are controlled by electric actuators, so as to realize valve opening and closing. It can be divided into two parts, the upper part is the electric actuator and the lower part is the valve.  While the solenoid valve is composed of the solenoid coil (solenoid), valve core and valve body. When the solenoid coil is energized or power-off, the valve core is driven to move the fluid through the valve body or be cut off. 

How a Solenoid Valve Piping Control works?

Solenoid valves consist of a coil, plunger, and sleeve assembly. In ordinarily closed valves, a plunger is a moving mechanism and a spring holds the plunger against the porta when needed to prevent flow. Once the solenoid coil is energized, the plunger is raised to facilitate flow. In other words, once the solenoid coil is energized the plunger will move, sealing off or opening up the porta. This movement then allows or prevents the flow of water.
