high pressure electric solenoid valve?

Unread postAuthor: JDP12 » Mon May 19, 2008 7:29 pm

hey all, i'm looking for a high pressure solenoid valve for a nitrous system i am building..

it can be CO2 rated, it just has to be rated at a really high pressure and i haven't been lucky finding one rated too high, can anyone help me out??

Thanks

i might just regulate the nitrous down to say 150 PSI or so, then i could buy a normal solenoid valve

You obviously aren't looking very hard.

McMaster-Carr part numbers: 49895K31, 49895K32, 4665K24, 4665K25, 4665K26, 8077K42, 46365K12, 7894K75, 7894K74, and 8214K17 should all be suitable for your purpose. This next group is my personal favourite one though: The section at the bottom of page 444 on McMaster-Carr's catalog titled "Stainless Steel High-Pressure Solenoid Valves".

Did you even search at all?

yea i did DYI. for about 30 minutes actually.

i found them that go up to like 200 PSI, but i guess you found the better ones.

thanks, i think i might use 8077K42, it's only 50 bucks. i might get a regulator as well, just for pressure stability. I dunno yet.

I guess i didn't look hard enough, thanks for the help DYI

No problem. McMaster is always the first place I look, and the good ones started coming up about 5 pages in. None specifically rated for N<sub>2</sub>O, but considering that it isn't an oxidiser except at elevated temperatures, it shouldn't be a problem. There are no corrosion issues I can think of for it either.

On a somewhat related side note, I really want to see someone build an internal combustion engine that uses liquid O<sub>2</sub> as an oxidiser :lol:

umm... sorry i won't be building an internal combustion with liquid o2 as an oxidizer.

not anytime soon at least.

you can if you want!!!!

I said I wanted to see it. Preferably from a few hundred yards away behind a large block of Lexan. :lol:

hahaha..

has anyone built one?

I'd prefer to be a couple miles away watching through a video camera near it, similar to when the mythbusters blew up the concrete mixer... and then surrounded by a large block of lexan
