Compact, Normally-Closed PTFE Bellows Seal Solenoid Valves Series EAST

For applications requiring a compact, cost effective and high pressure rated valve
with extended cycle life.


  • Compact Size: Only 4-9/16 in. high, these valves are ideal for limited space installations.
  • Economical: Low unit cost coupled with high pressure ratings and considerable flow rate (Cv to 0.8) offer excellent opportunities for systems requiring quick opening/quick closing solenoid valves.
  • High Pressure: Particularly for applications where high back-pressures (up to 70 PSI) are required e.g. controlling flow to spray nozzles, high pressure chemical injections, etc. Inlet pressure to 140 PSI. Note that the 1/4″ orifice design is NOT recommended for use with DC voltage.
  • Unique Design: PTFE bellows barrier type dynamic seal prevents leaking or fugitive emissions to the atmosphere.
  • Versatility: Can be used with all type solutions. Includes acids, caustics, solvents, chlorine solutions and ultra-pure liquids.
  • Superior Performance: Tested to 2,000,000 cycles, with city water in laboratory conditions.
  • Energy Efficient: Molded 11 Watt NEMA 4 style coil with DIN standard connector results in low energy consumption.
  • Sizes: 1/4 in. and 1/2 in. pipe sizes with 3/16 in.(4.8mm) or 1/4 in.(6.4mm) Orifice.
  • Corrosion Resistant: Rugged thermoplastic construction is resistant to both internal and atmospheric corrosion. No metal parts in wetted areas..
  • Safety/Dependability: Patented Fail-Dry safety design feature provides advance visual warning if seal malfunctions, while permitting valves to continue operating until maintenance can be scheduled.
  • Coil Connector Light: Can be ordered with this optional feature, which lights up brightly to show when the solenoid is energized.

     Note: Handling of Dry Chlorine & Use of Thermoplastic Valves: When ordering a valve for chlorine service, please specify “Chlorine-Vacuum” on the order.  Plast-O-Matic Valves are not recommended for use with pressurized dry chlorine gas.
