Based in New Taipei City in Taiwan, manufacturers Chelic design and build a variety of pneumatic and electric actuator automation components including Chelic solenoid valves. The respected manufacturer also makes air units, actuators, pneumatic accessories, vacuum units, automatic modularised products and electro-control units.
Chelic solenoid valves are commonly used in a variety of industrial applications. These include plastic, chemical and food machinery, as well as machinery in the electronics, semiconductor and medical industries. You also frequently find Chelic valves being used in applications using laser equipment and smart manufacturing, as well as in machine tools, the clean energy industry and printed circuit board manufacturing equipment.
In this article, we will focus on the Chelic solenoid valves, explaining what such components are and how they work. Along with the other parts they make, UK businesses can get hold of these solenoid valve products through Chelic valves suppliers YB Components.
What Are Chelic Solenoid Valves?
The word ‘solenoid’ means a type of electromagnet formed by a helical coil of wire which generates a controlled magnetic field. A particular characteristic of solenoid electromagnets is the length of the wire being substantially greater than the diameter. This enables the coil to produce a uniform magnetic field when electric currents travel through a particular volume of space.
Such solenoid electromagnets are especially useful for mechanics and engineers as they provide them with an element of control over the electrical signal process.
With a valve being a device for controlling the passage of fluid or air through a pipe or duct, a solenoid valve is thus a type of valve that is operated electro-mechanically. There are also multiple different types of solenoid valves, even in the Chelic valves product range, as the valves have different characteristics according to the electric current being used and the strength of the magnetic field being generated.
Another factor of a solenoid valve is the mechanism used to regulate the fluid, as well as the type of fluid itself and its particular fluidic characteristics.
Chelic Valves: Actions and Mechanisms
The wide range of products available through Chelic valves suppliers are most commonly employed to control fluidic elements. Their primary purpose is to close and release fluids, as well as to distribute or mix them. Chelic valves can also be used to apply doses of one fluid into another different fluid.
Mechanisms for solenoid valves in general include linear action as well as plunger-type actuators. You can also find pivoted-armature actuators and rocker actuators. Chelic solenoid valves are also available with various port designs, including up to 5 ports.
Usually, when the likes of Chelic valves feature a 2-port design, it is to regulate the flow of a fluid. To switch flows between ports, it is recommended to use a Chelic solenoid valve with additional ports, which will be positioned together on a manifold.
