I am in the middle of a regulator build, and I found a Parker metering valve at a good price that I'm using for my build. I thought it might be neat to keep it in the Parker family and use a Parker solenoid, as well. However, after doing some searching, it seems some have had problems with Parker solenoids.
Does anyone have a Parker solenoid still in service?
Has anyone replaced their coil?
Does anyone know if the new Parker solenoids with the modular coils work any better? I found some literature that said they were rated for continuous duty.
Here is the latest catalog with the new modular coils and bodies:
And here is the full catalog of valves. The ones I'm looking at are the 7000 series.
