OK, hopefully this is the right section, since this seems to be the place that people post LAW stuff in.

What I'm wondering is if anyone knows where I can get a high-pressure solenoid valve. I'm thinking something like these, only rated to higher pressures.

I have more details on what I would ideally want, but I'll leave it open so that people can give suggestions that my designs could possibly be adapted to work with.

Sorry to sound mean here :ninja:

But what about the Brass valves?

I mean...you were looking at the plastic ones, Brass has a higher pressure strength...

Book of Armaments (Chapter 2, verses 9-21)
...And Saint Attila raised the sprinkler valve up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this Thy sprinkler valve that with it Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits, in Thy mercy." And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou remove thy solenoid and epoxy the pilot hole, then remove the guide rod, then thread your pilot valve directly to the body of thy sprinkler, lest thou increase thy pilot volume by a single iota, then lobbest thou thy nerfs towards thy foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall procedeth to the gates of reinsertion."

LOL, yeah, I actually did see those. But between the fact that I couldn't find a psi rating and then the price tag, I got sort of turned-off to them. Maybe that's the best I can find though. It's just so much $$$...

Well, in an ideal sense, they'd be rated to 600psi. But anything that I can find that'd be rated higher than the Home Depot ones (~100psi) would certainly be an improvement.

Manual brass works for anything 850 and under. I find manual brass valves commonly for about seven dollars.

The ones you're looking at are actually made for water (which is why they are low PSI). It would be doubtfull that anything your hardware store sold could be used for such high pressure (asside from manual ball valves, of course).

Looked at those valves...friggin' schweet.

Yeah, I know.
I checked. :ninja:

I was hoping someone could tell me where to get some online for a good price.

the orbit valve at home depo is rated for 150 psi and is what i use, there are valves rated upto 10,000 psi but they are very pricey.

Check out farm equipment places or look up hydralics in the yellow pages. Valves on tractors go to about 3500 psi.

Hydraulic valves are usually a little slow to open. The solenoid ones usually are pretty quick. I use one of the brass 1" solenoid valves rated to 1800 psi. Works great and you could also use it as a club to kill a bull elephant with one strike.

Try STC Valves. They work great! I have been building Grenade launchers with them for a while. Model MSV98322EB works great. 2.5 milisecond actuator. You will want to build a chamber behind it though. It is a small valve. Only 1/4 inch.
