Default 1/2" ss solenoids, cheap source?

Hey Guys,

I'm getting ready to start working on the liquid side of the brewery, and I need to source 10-11 1/2" ss solenoids. Not sure if I want to go 12V or 120V? I will probably use mechanical relays if I go the 120V route...

Anyway, I am trying to find the best source for good but cheap valves.

I know dudadiesel has some at a good price.

Does anyone know of any other sources that can compete?

Thanks,

Bryan

We had a group buy going a few months ago, we got them from valves4projects for about $30/ea. I think we had to buy at least 25 to get that price.

this place has 3 piece ball valves with an actuator mounted to them. i don't think it says what voltage they run at though

I've got the feelers out at a couple places for pricing... I currently need about 10 valves, and would be willing to organize another group purchase if there was any interest.

I'll report back when I hear any news.

In the interim, would anyone else be interested in a group buy?

Thanks,

Bryan

I think that is just the mount on the ball valve, not the actuator.
