This flanged, heavy duty, pilot-operated, industrial refrigeration solenoid valve controls the flow of refrigerant. When electrically energized, a slight pressure difference across the valve causes it to open wide; when de-energized, a spring promptly closes the main Teflon seat to stop all flow in the arrow direction on the valve body.
The advanced design is ideal as a standard, stock, ammonia liquid line solenoid valve. While primarily for ammonia, this valve is also suitable for R22, R134a, CO2 and other approved refrigerants. Most common use is to automatically stop liquid line feed to recirculating liquid overfeed evaporators, to float switch controlled accumulators, and to thermal expansion valves; it is also suitable for hot gas defrost, and evaporator suction. (Note: for gravity liquid drain or equalization applications use low pressure drop HCK2 gas-powered suction stop valve or HS9B gas-powered solenoid valve.)
