Gas Solenoid Valves

Designed for use in hazardous applications.

Gas solenoid valves operate by translating electrical impulses to open or close a valve. This then controls the flow of gas through the circuit, which in turn enhances the functionality of the machine. Often, gas solenoids are found in both industrial and residential situations, depending on specific applications. Commonly, solenoid valves for gas are used in industrial gas burners, atmospheric gas boilers, industrial kilns and other gas consuming applications.

MGA Controls stock a range of solenoid valves for gas from Elektrogas, Bürkert, ASCO and Maxseal. As they are designed for use in hazardous applications, they are manufactured from robust materials, including brass, stainless steel and light weight die-cast aluminium. The gas solenoid valves are also manufactured in accordance with the BS EN 161 standards and are available in sizes between DN8 and DN150.

As the gas solenoid valves are only available as normally closed variants, the power can never fail, as the valve will close immediately to stop the flow of potentially explosive gases. Our technical team are fully trained in our wide range of gas solenoid valves, so if you require further information about MGA Controls range of gas solenoids, contact our technical team today for more information. They are on hand to offer application advice. To discuss your gas solenoid requirements in more detail, call the MGA Controls technical team on +44 (0)1704 898980 or email

Frequently asked questions

Types of Gas Solenoid Valves

MGA Controls Ltd’s portfolio of products include those from Elektrogas. Elektrogas manufacture a range of gas solenoid valves that are specifically designed for natural gas applications such as blocking and releasing controls in gas burners, atmospheric gas boilers, industrial kilns and other gas consuming applications. ASCO has a wide range of solenoid valves for gas, designed to control the flow of fuel gas. These valves are available in 2-way normally closed, manual reset, and 3-way diversion varieties. Bürkert also produce gas solenoids that are suitable for aggressive or neutral media and are applicable in various temperature and pressure ranges.

Common Gas Solenoid Valve Applications

A gas solenoid valve can be used in many applications, including commercial and residential devices. Commercial uses of gas solenoid valves generally include pneumatic machinery that uses gas pressure to move its parts and manufacturing facilities might use solenoid valves to control the movement of gases used in their manufacturing processes. Gas burners, atmospheric gas boilers and industrial kilns or ovens are also common commercial applications. Residential use often includes washing machines and dishwashers. The average working temperature of a gas solenoid can range from anything between -15 to 60°C. However, this is likely to depend on the material composition of the valve, so it may be best contacting MGA Controls to discuss this further.
