Solenoid valves are used to control the flow of fluid and gas. If you need one of these devices and plan to customize it, here are some strategies to remember.
Study Standard Valves First
Before you ever start customizing a solenoid valve for an important system, you need to study some standard solenoid valves first. There are plenty to look at today. Just review their specs for a couple of days, including their size, material composition, fluid flow, and shapes.
Then you can take the best parts of these standard valves and know exactly how to customize your own valve. This will help you develop a well-functioning solenoid valve in no time. Just make sure you don't leave any stone unturned when performing assessments on standard valves.
Make Sure Premature Failure Isn't Likely
If there's one thing you want to avoid with a custom solenoid valve, it's a premature failure. If this happened, then you would have to fix it and possibly replace it entirely. You can keep premature failure from happening though if you just customize this valve correctly.
Start by seeing what type of fluids or gas this valve will support. You can then make sure the materials this valve is made of won't degrade over time when they come in contact with said substance. You also might consider putting a protective coating on the solenoid valve, making it more wear-resistant as a whole. Then degradation may not happen for a long time.
Verify Inlet and Outlet Ports Are the Right Size
Every solenoid valve is the same in that they all have inlet and outlet ports. When customizing said valve, you need to make sure these ports are the right size. Then the flow of fluid or gas will be optimized, helping you maintain safe operations with the valve system.
If you've never designed one of these valves before, it's a good idea to consult with a professional. They can see what substance you're trying to support and then give you specific dimensions for both ports. Then the flow of fluid will remain around an optimal range.
Solenoid valves have a lot of great applications because they can control the flow of fluid and gas. If you plan to have one customized, be sure your plans make sense based on where this valve will be set up and how it will be used for the foreseeable future.Share

Hi there, my name is Amanda O'Leary. I have traveled all around the world, with most of my time spent in north Africa and southeast Asia, but I have set foot in every major region of the world. I recommend that literally everyone else do the same. Experiencing such a broad range of cultures can really change your outlook on life. One thing I have noticed is that international businesses still struggle to market to foreigners. Because this is a topic that I am passionate about, I have decided to create a blog designed to help businesses bring their products and brands overseas in a manner that will be culturally sensitive and highly profitable.
