This question already has an answer here:
I am doing a project on an automated grain dispenser system using a PLC control. I need a valve for dispensing grain from hopper to packet. I should be able to control the flow of the grain.
So what kind of valve should I use for flow control of the grain? There are different types of grains like rice, wheat, etc., and the valve should be controlled by the PLC (opening and closing of valve).
