    • Media:
      • Corrosive, Non-volatile Liquids
      • Air
      • Water
      • Light Oils (Max Viscosity: 30W SAE ,400 SSU)
    • Pressure Range: 5-150 psi
      • For optimal valve operation, specify your actual pressure range.  A minimum pressure drop of 5 psi (ΔP) is needed for proper operation.

Select the Maximum Pressure Rating closest  to but not exceeding the actual pressure
under which the valve will operate (Example: offered ranges are 5-150 psi or 10-300 psi.
Your water application has a Maximum Pressure of 120 psi > pick the 5-150 psi rated valve).
Normally Open valves require inlet pressure to initially open and stay open.

Valve Construction

  • GLOBE BODIES are Investment Cast (CF8M).  rated: WSP 200 psi – WOG 1000 psi.  UNION BONNET (1/8”-1” NPT),  BOLT-DOWN BONNET (1¼” – 2” NPT)
  • BONNET ASSEMBLIES are 316 Stainless Steel (SS) Tubes with 316SS Tube Plugs welded to a 316SS (â…›”–1”NPT) or CF8M (1¼”-2”NPT) Bonnet Base.   BONNET ‘O’-Ring SEAL is Teflon® (as required).
  • PISTON ASSEMBLY is 316SS with a 316SS Teflon® Leakproof SEAT SCREW and a 316SS EXPANDER RING behind a Glass & Moly-Filled Teflon® PISTON RING plus a Teflon® SEAT DISC and 316SS (â…›”–¾”NPT) or CF8M (1”-2”NPT) GUIDE NUT.
  • Normally Open PILOT VALVE ASSEMBLY is 316SS JACKET welded over a Carbon Steel CORE. A 316SS LIFT SPRING holds the PILOT VALVE ASSEMBLY open.


  • Installation: Valves must be mounted in horizontal pipe with coil vertical, upright and on top. A 40–mesh inline strainer is recommended ahead of the valve.
  • Maintenance: As with any piece of equipment, reasonable inspection and maintenance of components should be periodically performed. Frequently check operation, cleanliness and internal wear. Any questions, consult factory.

NOTE: Gould Solenoid Valves are designed for Industrial–Commercial applications. Residential/Consumer applications will void the warranty. Questions ~ Call our Experts.
