The Right Solenoid Valve
Ive got a few projects going on, but I have two ballast tank systems from Caswell for two separate static diving submarines I'm building over the winter. My problem is that I can't find the proper solenoid valves for them.
One is an RCABS system and needs to let the air that the pump pressurized in the WTC (or other compartment) back into the bladders.
The other is the small SNORT system that needs to vent the air from the ballast tank for diving.
So far the ONLY solenoid I have found on RC Sub sites is one on Mikes Sub Works (http://www.mikessubworks.com/page1.html) (under the "Air Bladder Systems" link, the "Clippard solenoid valve")
Is that the correct one for both systems? Or do you have a better idea? Or am I just blind?
P.S. I chose solenoids over servo actuated switches and valves to save space in my cramped subs and to reduce the moving parts and servicing.
