ASCO ValveASCO Valve - The World's Leading Manufacturer of Solenoid Valves
The solenoid is an electromagnetic part of a valve, comprised of a coil, coretube, core and enclosure. The ASCO RedHat brand offers the world’s largest selection of 
2-way3-way and 4-way solenoid valves, designed to handle the most demanding fluid control applications.

ASCO ValveASCO's 2-Way solenoid valves have one inlet and one outlet, and are used to permit and shut off fluid flow. The two types of operations are Normally Closed (NC) and Normally Open (NO). Two types of constructions apply to 2-way solenoid valves, which are direct acting and internally piloted.

ASCO 3-Way Solenoid Valves have three pipe connections and two orifices. When one orifice is open, the other is closed and vice versa. 3-way solenoid valves are commonly used to alternately apply pressure to and exhaust pressure from a valve actuator or a single acting cylinder. The RedHat solenoid valve can be normally closed, normally open or universal.

 ASCO 4-Way Solenoid Valves have four or five pipe connections, commonly called ports. One pressure inlet, two cylinder ports providing pressure to double acting cylinder or actuator, and one or two outlets to exhaust pressure from the cylinders.
