Remote Valve?

I have an idea for a project, and I am trying to figure out a simple mechanism or valve that will be able to release fog produced by water and dry ice into a relatively small diameter tube. I would like it to be activated via remote, but other ideas are appreciated. My plan is to have a sealed container with water and dry ice on my back. Tubing would lead from the container to a mask I'm constructing. I am just trying to figure out a way in which I can control the release of the fog.

Valve question

Hi all ... my first post is actually a question. I have been searching for the name of a specific type of valve. More specifically the name of the valve in a refillable butane lighter (the intake valve). The little brass valve that is usually at the bottom. I need something similar for a proeject I am working on but after looking for a while I have yet even to come up with a specific name for it. Also, if somebody could tell me where I could find some (doesn't have to be brass - as long as it is metal) ... I need about 20 minimum to begin with. Thank you very much, Iza Bl..

solenoid valve control

Hi, im wanting to build somthing simple to control the heater control valve on my fiesta. its a simple solenoid valve at 0v its open(hot) at 12v(14.4v) its closed(cold) the propper control board uses pulses to control the valve, the board has since given up and im left with a very hot car, now i thought a simple way to sort the problem might be to use the 10k pot on the control board with a MOSFET and just vary the voltage going to the valve. will this have the same effect on the valve?

CO2 valve question? Answered

Hi ... I would like to ask for your opinion about my idea : I got as a present a CO2 airsoft pistol. Unfortunately it's too powerful for the UK airsoft norms. So I would like to make it weaker. I took the magazine apart and I had a look at the valve. I find out, that the moving part in the valve (that release the CO2 from cartridge to the gun) is able to move cca 2mm. Now my question is : If I would limit the movement with "something" so that the moving part woudl move only 0.5-1mm ... would this make the gun weaker ??? Thank you for your opinion or any suggestions.

Gas Inlet valves

Hey guys and girls, I am after a supplier for gas inlet valves, or a standard or anything... Basically I have a laser tag system that I want to add high pressure air recoil to, but I want the air supply in a removable magazine, that will then connect to the gun and go through a blow back valve once the trigger is pulled etc. Now, the problem I have is the connection between the magazine and the gun, to allow the gas to flow through, I know airsoft guns have recoil magazines that they can use, (Im in Australia, so i don't have access to these). But would really like to know where I can get some of the parts from. Or designs maybe.

Needle valve on the cheap?

I need a needle valve or similar to adjust some pressure with more or less precision. Problems I am facing with commercial solutions at the moment: Needs to withstand about 300psi max pressure, must survive contionous exposure to concentrated ammonia vapour. I already wasted too much money on stainless steel valves claiming to be chemical proof and capable of 6000psi only to find out they use seals that turn to goo in the ammonia vapour and fail. And since the stuff is not really healthy, not easy to get, I would prefer something safer. Real problem is also that the thing should be able to allow for good flow rates when opened fully. Modes of operation: During the active cycle ammonia vapour needs to pass through an opening as big as possible while after that the flow must be shut off. The reverse cycle needs to be adjustable from closed to fully open with great detail to control the flow rate. Current ways to compensate: With a ball valves and extra piping I could seperate the two cycles so I won't have to bother with tiny openings but I would prefer to use only a single connection. With a bypass around the needle valve this could be accomplished better but still looks ugly. Materials out of the question: Copper, brass, normal seals based on rubber, nitrile or similar. Questions: I know fully sealed in.line valves exist for LPG system and similar. Are any of these magnetic valves available for the use with ammonia? And if so: Can they be operated with a neodymium magnet instead of the coil? Even stainless steel valves rated for chemical use and high pressure fail quickly on the seals. Is there anything available that does not use soft seals but for example aluminium instead? Thinking spray pump here... One way ball valve systems like used in simple spray pumps are a great thing. With some aluminium tubing I was able to make a simple valve that with some more attention to detail might even work. But of course there no other way of moving the ball then to use a magnet and with sufficient back pressure even neodymium ones fail to get the ball in the open position and keep it there. Now getting this combine with a needle... If, instead of the ball, a magnet in a teflon shell is used on a spindle I could spin a magnet around the outside to turn the valve with great precision. Has anyone already designed such a thing or would I have to start from scratch here?

Cheap air valves or solenoids?

I'm planning on building an unconventional pipe organ, but I am having trouble finding good cheap air valves that I can buy 60 of to complete an entire manual (keyboard). Normally, a classic organ would use mechanical linkages to a sort of air switchboard, but I have neither the time nor the inclination to build that kind of system (and I want everything to be physically robust and portable, for traveling and abuse during performances. Plus my pipes are very weird ones, and almost all of them would have to be offset anyway, so air tubes would be involved at some point no matter what.) So I'd prefer to have air lines going to each key, with a valve, and then the air lines continue to a much simpler switchboard, so that no pulleys or levers need to be involved. The valves can be electric (keys can easily connect a circuit instead of letting air through), or mechanical (pressing the key opens the valve), and my budget is about 2 dollars or less per valve. Any ideas or links? Homemade plans are welcome too, if you have a method that would be easy to mass produce and not cause leakage. Some of the lower notes may require higher airflow/larger valves too, so a solution that is scalable is preferred.

Satellite to Radio to Pneumatic Valve

I want to receive some sort of satellite signal with a radio and then use the data I receive to control a pneumatic system to replicate a heart beating. I have been talking around with some people who know a bit about radios and the such but haven't gotten much conclusive help.  I would like to build as much of this as I can myself, the entire radio and everything, though I only have about a month to do it. A DIY radio kit paired with an Arduino might be the answer due to time restraints.  What i've learned so far is that I probably want it to be a tunable AM radio. Whether or not I should build that myself from scratch, build a DIY kit, or just purchase one, I am not sure. How to then interface that into a system to then control a pneumatic system, I have no idea other than the obvious arduino. Lastly, I don't need any special signal from the satellite. I really just need to receive a voltage from the radio. Though, hooking into a satellite with an onboard atomic clock so that i can then display the time as well would be great. I am going to keep doing research, though if anyone here can lend a helping hand I would be very appreciative!

How to connect a solenoid valve to my water container? Answered

I have a setup in my mind, consisting of a plastic bottle(filled with water) with a male threaded neck. This bottle is sitting upside-down so the threaded neck is on the bottom. I want to transfer this water to a cup(by freefalling water) through an electrically controlled solenoid valve. The problem is, the plastic bottle I have picked out has a neck outer diameter of 1-1/2 inches, and assuming I want to directly connect the solenoid valve to the neck, I need to get a 1-1/2" diameter valve, which is above $100. Is there any way to connect this container and a valve(still not picked out) without that high a cost? Maybe a reducer of some sort(i looked but cant find any with 1-1/2" diameter on one side)?  Thanks guys, and sorry if the question is kinda weird and simple. For a reference, check this project. What i want to do is similar,but instead of using a pump, I want the water to freefall into the cup.I'd like to eliminate the tubing too.
