New Product: Product Spotlight: Car-Care Valves

March 20, 2008
The Car-Care solenoid valve, designed for the car-wash industry, features multiple-unit manifold assemblies for on/off control of water, soaps, detergents, and chemical and compressed air service.

The valves come in brass and stainless steel in a wide range of two and three-way normally open and normally closed configurations. Also available are aluminum four-way valves and brass or stainless-steel manifolds. Orifice and port sizes range from 1/8 through 2 in.

Three and four-way models provide pneumatic cylinder control of brushes, mitters, and tire-scrubbing assemblies. Optional metering valves can dispense chemicals or allow slow closure to prevent waterhammer effects.
