Lessons learned (hopefully): (1) Don't use solderless breadboards for power wiring; and (2) solder wires that carry heavy currents.
It's nice that you got the pneumatic solenoid valve working without a datasheet. When you discovered that it worked okay when connected directly to the battery but failed when connected tot he Arduino-controlled circuit, that should have been a huge clue.
