SF08-20 Valve

SF08-20 Valve symbol

A solenoid-operated, 2-way, normally closed, piloted poppet-type, screw-in cartridge
valve, intended to act as a blocking or load-holding device for diesel engine braking applications.

When de-energized, the SF08-20 acts as a check valve, allowing flow from 1 to 2, while blocking
flow from 2 to 1. When energized, the cartridge’s poppet lifts to open the 2 to 1 flow path. In this
mode, flow from 1 to 2 is severely restricted.

• Compatible with diesel fuel types 1 and 2.
• Corrosion-resistant plating.
• Stainless steel option - consult factory.
• Continuous-duty rated coil.
• Hardened seat for long life and low leakage.
• Optional coil voltages and terminations.
• Cartridges are voltage interchangeable.
• Unitized, molded coil design.
• Optional waterproof E-Coils rated up to IP69K.
• Industry common cavity.
• Compact size.
