About our Solenoid Valves – Cryogenic to -196°C – Miniature
As specialist suppliers of components for a range of engineering applications, you can be assured of the quality and reliability of a solenoid valve from Applications Engineering. Our cryogenic miniature solenoid valves are specifically built to tolerate extreme temperatures, and are available in 2- and 3-way configurations, in miniature and subminiature sizes.
The solenoid valves we supply include isolation valves for high-purity and aggressive media, cryogenic valves for temperatures down to -196°C and a selection of durable valves for general purposes. If you require a custom solution, such as a modified coil or manifold configuration, we can provide it. All of our components are rigorously tested to ensure they meet the highest safety standards, and represent excellent value for money.
Where would a cryogenic solenoid valve be used?
Solenoid valves are used to control the flow of liquid or gaseous fluid in a system. A 2-way valve will have an “on/off” function, while a 3-way valve – or more complex manifold of many valves – can switch the flow from an inlet between two outlets. Because of this, solenoid valves are used in countless hydraulic and pneumatic fluid power applications, to control motors, cylinders or larger valves within a system.
Cryogenic solenoid valves are common in a wide range of industries, from food processing to industrial manufacturing. They perform various functions in medicine and biotechnology, for example, as components in laser surgical equipment. Solenoids are also found in the control mechanisms for climate chambers (used for testing electronics, biological tissue, fabrics etc.), and control water usage into domestic appliances like dishwashers and washing machines.
What is the lowest working temperature?
The cryogenic solenoid valves we supply are suitable for low-temperature and cryogenic applications, operating in temperatures down to -196°C (-320°F).
Can the valves be used in liquid nitrogen?
Yes, the D-Cryo Series of miniature solenoid valves can be configured to operate with liquid nitrogen, liquid carbon dioxide or other cryogenic media.
