MGA Controls has been supplying ASCO solenoid valves since 1986. As such, we can provide a complete fluid control solution for any given application. In this blog, we give you a snapshot of our ASCO solenoid valve catalogue of innovative products and explain ASCO solenoid valve types.

ASCO solenoid valve types

ASCO Solenoid valve types can either be Direct Operated Solenoid Valves or Pilot Operated Solenoid Valves and can be used with water, compressed air, steam, oil, fuel, gas, cryogenic fluids and many other safe or aggressive media.

Here, we outline some of our most impressive ASCO solenoid valves, available to buy online at MGA Controls’ online store.

ASCO 222 Series Brass Solenoid Valve

The ASCO 222 Series Brass Solenoid Valve has been specifically designed for low pressure, high temperature applications. Manufactured with a brass body, and stainless steel and EPDM internal parts, it is suitable for use on hot water and steam applications up to a maximum operating pressure of 9 bar for hot water and 3.5 bar for steam.

ASCO 210 Series Solenoid Valves

ASCO 210 Series Solenoid Valves are a general purpose, 2/2-way solenoid valve with forced lift, which enables them to operate without the need for differential pressure. These solenoid models are available in sizes ranging from 3/8” up to 1.1/2” and in brass or stainless steel bodies. We can also supply them in a variety of seal materials to suit almost any industrial application.

ASCO 238 Series Solenoid Valve

The ASCO 238 Series Solenoid Valve is a 2/2-Way Normally Closed or Normally Open General Purpose Brass Solenoid Valve. Available in sizes from 3/8” to 2”, it operates up to a maximum pressure of 16 Bar. Featuring a built in pilot, it requires a much smaller electrical current to operate than a forced lift solenoid. It uses the process media as a pilot assist to open and close the valve, and therefore requires a minimum line pressure of 0.3 bar to operate effectively.

ASCO E290 Series Angle Seat Piston Valve

The E290 Series Angle Seat Piston Valve from ASCO is an Air Operated, or Pneumatically Operated Piston Valve. Thanks to the piston design, it is suitable for use on neutral or aggressive fluids, and can operate at up to 16 Bar. It is also suitable for use with hot water or steam up to 184 degrees C. Available in either Bronze or Stainless Steel body materials, it comes as standard with a PTFE seal and can be fitted with a solenoid pilot valve to allow automation and integration with other process components.
