Although 5-way poppet valves and 5-way diaphragm valves are available, 5 port 2-way solenoid valves are most commonly associated with spool valve types.
They operate by using a spool or shuttle which changes its position in the valve body to align a flow path between ports, depending on it’s electrical state. This operation allows 5 port solenoid valves to be used for diverting, mixing, or venting neutral gases or liquids.
5-Way solenoid valves are available in a range of materials, including but not limited to brass and stainless steel, and come in a range of sizes from ¼” to ½”. They are also available with a range of seal materials to suit different media, and are available with certification for use in ATEX or Hazardous Area applications.
