Air Pilot Operated Solenoid Valve – V13300-26

Air Pilot Operated Solenoid Valve - V13300-26


Valcor Nuclear has created this compact size and low weight 4-way, direct acting, nuclear qualified, solenoid valve to be used as pilot operator on double acting air cylinders in nuclear power plants. It has been designed specifically to prevent the chronic operational problems associated with conventional solenoid valves currently installed CANDU plants. The single coil, cool running design is both highly reliable and adaptable. The rugged solenoid is seal welded and is of stainless steel construction. The solenoid does not use any O-rings for environmental sealing. The valve has a rugged brass body. The disc and bonnet are of stainless steel. Model V13300-26 utilizes Valcor’s unique “Floating Seal” principle that provides a wear compensating graphite seal, which contacts lapped stainless steel seats.
