The small and sturdy Fountain Solenoid Valve is a powerful electromechanical gatekeeper. For larger systems, its important task is to control the flow of fluid, air, gas, or particles. However, even the most reliable valves can fatigue or fail to work, which can shut down or affect system performance. Some users want to know the value of maintaining such a small component, or the difference in maintaining the system. There are also questions about the appropriate time to repair and replace the valve. (See the "Repair or Replace?" article). As with any mechanical equipment, the active maintenance of solenoid valves can prolong the service life and ensure consistent operation.
Generally, valve problems may be easy to identify and repair themselves. The old enemy may be the valve's environment, medium, or even application. Valves that have to work harder usually have a shorter service life, about 1-3 years. Through regular maintenance, users can extend the service life of the valve and keep the operation running normally.
Maintenance of Solenoid Valve Factory's Fountain Solenoid Valve first focuses on identifying the wear area and then replacing the affected components. In addition, various parts of the valve were inspected to ensure that they were clean and free of accumulated materials, which would affect the energization and de-energization of the entire valve system.
When to maintain the Fountain Solenoid Valve
According to experience, this is the best time to complete the valve maintenance procedure when the machine is disassembled for maintenance. The proactive approach can extend product life and create the best performance on the valve and the entire system.
The following is a list of exploratory questions to consider:
If the valve fails at an inappropriate time, what has the opportunity cost?
Is there a safety hazard when the valve fails?
What is the financial cost of the entire valve failure? The cost loss in the equation is attributed to the loss of productivity and any work that needs to be replaced.
What is the maintenance cost of the valve? Including time and resources.
How often the solenoid valve should be maintained depends on its design and application. Certain applications particularly damage the internal and external components of the valve and therefore require more attention.
