Solenoid Valve Operating Magnet

The Solenoid Valve Operating Magnet solves the problem of operating a solenoid valve when a system is without power. The magnet is the same shape and size of a large cotton reel and, when placed onto a solenoid valve (with the coil removed), it causes the armature to open or close.

The magnet can be used to operate valves in a plant or system which has yet to be wired-up or has been decommissioned. It eliminates the need to wire up the system or worry about the correct voltage. It can also be used when recovering refrigerant from a plant which has already been decommissioned and power removed. In emergencies, such as the failure of a Solenoid Valve coil, it can also be used to keep a system operating while a replacement coil is found.

Key Features

A service engineer received a call from a milk processing plant saying that the plant was warming-up. He found that the solenoid coil had burned out and by using the Fridgenius Solenoid Valve Operating Magnet, he was able to run it permanently – setting it to cut-out under pressure. This saved 14,000 litres of milk!
