AutomationDirect’s family of potable water components (valves, regulators, fittings, tubing and hoses) now includes potable water solenoid valves. These NS-Series NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) certified valves (from GC Valves) are an excellent choice for food and beverage grade potable water applications.
Stainless steel or thermoplastic bodies and synthetic seating and sealing materials makes NS series valves suitable for use with a variety of liquids, oils and gases. Valve operation is normally closed (N.C.) and open when electrically energized. The valves can be mounted in any position and a spring loaded plunger assures positive shutoff.
Three types of 2-port (2-way), 2-position NS series valves are available. NS201 and NS211 series are piloted diaphragm valves; NS201 series valves can also operate under zero pressure differential. NS201 and NS211 series valves have 316L stainless steel or Noryl bodies and are ported for 3/8, 1/2 or 3/4 inch NPT. These valves are available with 120VAC, 24VAC or 24VDC solenoids.
NS301 series valves are direct acting with an armature that acts directly on the valve orifice to control fluid flow and does not require a minimum pressure to operate. These valves have 303 stainless steel bodies and 1/4 inch NPT ports. They are available with three orifice sizes and solenoid voltages of 120VAC, 24VAC or 24VDC. Cost-effective NS301 series valves are an excellent choice for potable water applications up to 400psi.
Replacement coils are available with either an 18mm (DIN 43650A) style wiring plug or a 1/2 inch conduit and 24-inch cable. Valve repair kits and complete valve rebuild kits are also offered.
NS Series potable water valves are made in the USA with prices starting at $73. The valves are NSF, CE, CSA, UL recognized and NEMA 4/4X protected.
