725PSI Solenoid Valve

Unread postAuthor: MrCrowley » Fri Feb 01, 2008 1:58 am

Just found a 3/4" solenoid valve for diesel applications with operating pressures of up to 725PSI, or 50BAR on an Auction site. I asked for more details, but I think it'll look similar to this:

Probably too good to be true, as usual.

Have you ever looked at nitrous valves? They are high pressure and I would assumer a relatively high volume valve. Or perhaps C02 solenoid valves for shifters? I am unaware of their prices but it would allow for some nice small guns to be made.

I doubt you could without matter penetrating vision. If it is a diaphragm valve I bet It would work.

Yes they are solenoid valves. And so are sprinkler valves.

Unless they are direct acting solenoid valves they will be diaphragm valves with a wide body where the diaphragm is.

Those can be modded and in fact Cornishtiger from the UKSGC boards did exactly that as can be seen here with a 1" brass solenoid valve mod.

Let me rephrase, You could add a BLow gun to this, but there is no point what so ever, as the Solenoid on top of this does not suffer from the same problem as the SPrinkler solenoids.
