Three-way direct acting solenoid valves work in almost the same way as a two-way direct acting solenoid valve.  The fixed core has an exhaust orifice running through it.  The plunger has an upper seal and lower seal allowing flow to or from either the body seat or exhaust seat depending on the configuration. Applications using three way solenoid valves As three way solenoid valves operate in the..

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. 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..
