New Solenoid Valve Designed For Food Service and Processing Applications

April 13, 2006
Spartan Scientific, a manufacturer of standard and custom-designed solenoid valves, has introduced their newest product, the 3B23. The 3B23 solenoid valve is designed for use in food service and processing applications that require media-separation. The 3B23 is compatible with a variety of media types such as water and chemicals which are contained within a valve cavity made with FDA-approved materials preventing any contact with the metal components of the solenoid operator. The 3B23 can provide flow rates up to 1.5 gpm and is extremely cost-effective featuring a long-life solenoid which incorporates a fully encapsulated coil with a stainless steel plunger and tube assembly. Available in a normally- closed configuration, the 3B23 employs a rolling diaphragm enabling operating pressures up to 150 psi with orifice sizes ranging from 0.6 mm to 2.0 mm. Other features include availability in all standard voltages, a standard 6.5 watt coil, a single in-line valve body with metal reinforced 1/8” NPT threads as well as an ultra small volume and simple flow path for clean switching. The 3B23, like all Spartan Scientific products, is manufactured in the USA to the highest quality standards. • Function: 2-way, 2-position normally closed, direct acting, media separated solenoid • Port Size: 1/8"NPT • Orifice Size/Flow Factor(Cv): 1.2mm (.047")/ .065. Other Orifices available upon request (2.0mm Max.) • Temperature Range: (Fluid max. 90°C) Ambient -10° to +55°C • Response Time: 18 to 25 ms complete cycle
