SF08-21 Valve

SF08-21 Valve symbol

A solenoid-operated, 2-way, piloted, poppet-type, normally open, screw-in, cartridge valve
designed for low leakage in higher pressure load-holding applications, such as diesel engine
braking applications.

When de-energized, the SF08-21 allows flow from 2 to 1, while flow from 1 to 2 is severely
restricted. When energized, the valve closes, blocking flow from 2 to 1. In this mode, flow
from 1 to 2 will be allowed after overcoming the solenoid force. This requires 3.4 to 10.3 bar
(50 to 150 psi).
Operation of Manual Override Option: To override, push and hold override button.

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