The Bullet Valve®

The Bullet Valve® (BV) represents yet another evolution in air valve technology from MAC. The Bullet Valve utilizes “lifting” solenoid technology.

The MAC bullet valve® offers a one piece poppet/armature of very few parts and a long life lifting solenoid which is isolated from contaminated air.  The MAC “lifting” configuration is unique.  In that the valve maintains a balanced design – a signature feature of a MAC valve – shifting forces are consistently high and response times are repeatable regardless of inlet pressure fluctuations. 2-way and 3-way configurations of the BV cartridge (9mm, 10mm, 14mm, and 21mm) are available.

SeriesFlow (CV-Max)Port SizeConfiguration
BV102-Way up to 0.08, 3-Way up to 0.09N/ACartridge - Manifold:Non Plug-In
BV14Up to 0.24 CvN/ACartridge
BV21Up to 0.60 CvN/ACartridge


BViQ® brings the Bullet Valve® to the masses with a modular plug-in approach.

MAC Valves multi patented Bullet Valve® and subsequent products utilizing Bullet Valve® Technology have brought innovation to the air valve industry with MAC’s patented balanced lifting-type solenoid design resulting in superior life, reliability, and repeatability, as well as superior flow in a compact package.

The BViQ® is available in B314 and BV414 configurations featuring these innovative characteristics:

  • Dual Bullet Valve® Cartridge slices – reducing overall footprint
  • Dual 4-way slices
  • Intermixing of 3-way & 4-way valve slices in a common assembly
  • MAConnect® – available for wire-free manifold interconnects
  • Single fastener BV mounting – provides quick and simple assembly
  • Adapts via MAConnect® to several interface adapter types – including MI/O-67®
  • Many of the Bullet Valve® modifications available – optimized rubbers, flows, etc.
