you can find a variety of such valves.
Thanks for the tips!
My problem with 2/2 valves is that to exclude a block you need both normally closed and normally open models.
The Alphacool is only available as NC, very few are available also as normally open.
All NC it's problematic; these electromagnets doesn't last long if always on.
Also they produce heat which is never welcome...
It was just a shortcut, but I'm having trouble sourcing stuff with this CV mess, thus I tried to get something to mitigate.
The 3/2 valves are more expensive but only 2 are needed, which is good considering the 2 x 12V 1A limitation.
Also I'd like to exclude anything which is not brass or copper from the loops; dry valves ensure steel or aluminium doesn't get in touch with the fluid.
I'm looking at this one:
It's 12V and only 9W, -10° to +100°, EPDM seal which, as far I could understand from the chemical table, should go nice with Copper, Glycol and more or less all the chemicals eventually in the fluid.
It does need a device plug adapter; there I'm lost, I did send a few questions to this distributor yesterday.
Have no idea if I need a pressure switch setting or not, even what are exactly the differences between all those models of plugs.
Guess also needs an interference suppressor:
Also it's a G 1/4" connector but I'm not sure if it's threaded or not or same as the usual WC fittings.
I'm not very familiar with plumbing stuff outside computer WC.
