Series PS pilot-operated, normally closed solenoid valves are for process liquid applications requiring high flow capacity and pressure capability. With inlet pressure ratings to 140 psi and back pressures to 70 psi, these valves can be used to control flow to spray nozzles, high-pressure chemical injections, and similar applications. Constructed of rugged thermoplastic, the valves are resistant to both internal and atmospheric corrosion and have a cycle life in excess of 1 million cycles.
