A solenoid valve is an electromechanical valve that can be used to control the flow of liquid or gas.  The solenoid converts an electrical signal in to a mechanical movement.  The signal is sent to a coil and the movement occurs inside the valve.

M&M International Solenoid Valves

How do they work?

How M&M solenoid valves normally operate is shown in the diagrams.  A coil is assembled on to the valve body on an armature tube with an armature tube or moving core inside.  The moving core is held in place by a counter spring.  When the coil is charged the armature is attracted by its magnetic field and the main seal either opens or closes leaving a passage through the valve orifice.

M&Ms range of solenoid valves has only 2 different sizes of coil which reduces costs and provides maximum inter-changeability across their range.  Their coils are available as 12vDC, 24vDC, 24v/50-60, 110v/50—120v/60, 200v/50-220/60 and 230/50-240/60 but other voltages are available on request.
