Oil Solenoid Valves

The primary function of an oil solenoid valve is to open or close in response to an electrical signal. When the solenoid coil is energised, it creates a magnetic field, causing a plunger or armature within the valve to move, thereby opening or closing the valve. This mechanism allows for precise control of oil flow, making these valves highly effective for automated systems.
