Glove box Burkert Valve
Direct operated 2/2 way Burkert solenoid valve with brass body, 1/4 inch threads and a 230V AC (50Hz) coil. The circuit function of the solenoid valve is normally closed (opens when electrically energized). Suitable for systems with an operating pressure of 0 bar to 10 bar and a maximum temperature of 100 °C. The orifice is 3 mm and the Kv-value is 0.23m3/h. The Kv-value is used to calculate flow rate: at 1 bar differential pressure (water) the flow rate is approximately 3.8 l/min.
This valve has a FKM (Viton) seal, which is suited for compressed air, oils, fuels and many other chemicals. For hot water (>100°C), steam and alkaline substances EPDM is recommended instead of FKM.
Please consult the chemical resistance chart for other media.
Solenoid valves are electrically controlled valves which open or close by means of an electric current through a solenoid (coil). As long as they are electrically energized they consume energy. They open and close quickly. They are sensitive to dirt and can only be used with clean liquids or gases.
- The compact design and wide range of options make the 6013 suitable for an extreme range of applications
- Operates without a pressure differential
- Bürkert design: proven reliability & durability
- Use clean liquids or gases. Solenoid valves are very sensitive to dirt.
- Do not power the coil when the coil is removed from the valve. The coil will overheat and may burn out.
- Make sure that the valve is suitable for the application and that the materials are suitable for the medium and temperature.
Bürkert 6013 series overview
The 6013 valve is one of the most popular Burkert solenoid valve types. It is a compact, direct operated plunger solenoid valve that operates without a differential pressure over the valve. It can be used for low pressure applications, but also has versions that operate up to 25 bars. The valve is designed for small flow rates with port sizes from G 1/8″ up to G 3/8″ and orifice sizes ranging from 2 to 6 mm. Next to the threaded inline versions, a special SFB flange design is available which allows the installation of multiple valves onto a single manifold. Besides the versatile standard versions, the 6013 is available with options such as ATEX approval, DVGW gas approval, pulse coil (latching), manual override, kick- and drop function (energy reduction), extreme temperature versions and oil & fat free versions for oxygen, vacuum and analysis applications.
|Solenoid Valve||Electromechanically operated valve. An electric current through a solenoid is used to open or close the valve.|
|Direct operated||The solenoid pulls a ferromagnetic plunger. This will open or close the orifice directly. No differential pressure is required (operates from 0 bar).|
|2/2-Way||2 ports (inlet and outlet) and 2 positions (open and closed).|
|Normally closed||The valve opens when the coil is energized (Normally Closed or NC).|
|FKM||FKM (viton) is used for the seal material. FKM is suitable for (compressed) air, oils, fuels and other chemicals. FKM is more chemically resistant and can resist higher temperatures than NBR. EPDM is recommended for hot water (100°C+), steam and alkaline substances. View the materials compatibility overview.|
|230V AC||230 volt AC (50Hz). For most valve types different coils are available (380VAC, 230VAC, 120VAC, 24VAC, 12VDC, 24VDC). Always use the correct power supply.|
|Kv-value||Flow (m3/h) water of 20°C through the valve at a 1 bar pressure drop. The flow can be calculated with the formula: Q=Kv√dp. Example: The flow of a valve with Kv=0.5 in a system with a 2 bar inlet pressure and a free outlet can be calculated with: 0.5√2=0.7 m3/h, or 12 liter/min. For gases another formula must be used, the flow rate will be higher. A handy tool to determine the required Kv value is our Valve Sizing Calculator.|
|1/4 inch||G1/4 inch pipe thread (BSPP). Determine the valve size based on the desired flow rate and pipe diameter. Using the range of fittings, you can connect the valve to the desired type of pipe.
