Notice that it is also correctly described as "fast acting".
"Servo" is a general term, solenoid-servos are a more specific type. It's that sort of valve that you want.

.  I think you are grossly over-estimating how fast the SOVs would need to be for that application. Most off-the-shelf SOVs should be fast enough.
