Re: CO2 solenoid valves

Andy asked about the operating temperature of CO2 solenoid valves.  

Yes, these valves do run quite hot since they consume roughly 4 watts.
I think to ensure a good seal when they are off, the spring used is
quite stiff.  The stiff spring means that a substantial amount of energy
must be consumed to open the valve.
