How Does a Solenoid Valve Work?

Answer

The solenoid valve uses an electric current which moves the solenoid. This pulls a piston preventing it from stopping the flow of air and fluid. The valve will need a constant flow of electrical current to remain open because when there is no current flow, the electromagnetic field scatters and the valve returns to its original position.
