Solenoid Valve application

The system exploits steam to ease the ironing of clothing. The iron is equipped with a push button control that supplies steam on the cloth when pressed.

The solenoid valve installed on the ironing board controls the steam produced by an electric boiler and sends it to the iron when the push button control is operated.

The solenoid valve is fitted with a flow regulator (screw or knob) that enables the operator to regulate quantity and pressure of steam to be applied on the garment being ironed.

A solenoid valve capable to withstand many cycles every day is needed for this application.

The three types we recommend are all compatible with the requested application but have different features.
Valve D260 has a very large orifice (6 mm) but the maximum pressure is 5 bar - 150° C.
Valve D267 has an orifice of 3 mm or lower but can reach 180° C -10 bar; the standard seal is Rulon and the coil is class H. Therefore it is suitable for exacting industrial applications.

The valves last longer and are more robust compared to alternatives.

M&M also has type B658, operating with a piston, with a PTFE seal guaranteed for 5 million cycles at 10 bar – 180° C.
