Does anyone have any recommendation for an air flow solenoid valve that allows for free air flow without restricting the flow through the valve?
I bought an air valve from McMaster (MME-3QDS) and it just has too much flow resistance for my application. I also tried out a water solenoid valve and same problem.
I am using the valve for a project where the valve is used to divert exhaled human breath (i.e. low flow pressure). I am looking for a 3-way or 2-way, air control valve that is normally closed, runs on 12V or less, and has about 1/2" to 1/4" inlets.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions!
