Is there any reason not to mount a needle valve before a solenoid?
The reason I ask is because I'm currently running a Burkert 6011 and it gets hot, really hot, and has started to hum. I'm running a SS Ideal valve after it. I'd like to switch to a Clippard Mouse solenoid as I've read mostly great things about them.
So is there any reason not to set things up in this order?
CO2 Tank -> Regulator -> Ideal Needle Valve -> Clippard 15490-2 Single Port Manifold -> Clippard Mouse EV-2M-12 solenoid -> 10-32 with hose barb -> check valve -> inline bubble counter.
Honestly I can't see how it makes any difference, but there's always that nagging feeling that you're missing something.
