    Magnet for solenoid Valves???

    When I was in school for Refer I think the Teacher was Talking about a Magnet that you place on top off the valve and it holds it open. My Boss says I am full of **** and dreaming. Is this a special Magnet or any Old magnet? I have seen one sold by Emerson and it works with all thier Valves but what about other makes of valves? I figure that I am thinking to much into this and any Magnet with enough pull for will work but what do I know

    What do you guys do to bypass the valve and hold it open?

    An Iridium magnet might work. I had a customer who built linear DC motors with iridium magnets and he gave me a couple to play with.
