Control Pinch Valves and their Application

Controlled Processing of Product Flows

In a fully opened position, the flow of a processing product is in direct line with the critical elastomer sleeve, which maintains a direct control over the flow of a liquid, fluid or material. The Control Pinch Valve has a form constructed of a casing, flanged or screw type ends and the unique elastomer sleeve, the controlling factor of this variety of valve. This innovative valve has a designed construction, making it able to operate without damaging cavitations for specified conditions. The opening and closing of the valve whether a screw type or flange, is either by manual means or compressed air pressure fed into the casing.

 

Manual operated Pinch Valves and Innovative Parts

Innovation in Design and Construction

 

A Manual operated Pinch Valve is an innovative type of valve, by its design and construction simplicity. However, it has established a reputation for extremely high and effective performances in applications such as slurries, liquids and suspended solids, in comparison to other valve varieties. The valve consists of three basic parts, only one of which has any direct contact with a processing product. It provides a sealing process by using an elastomer sleeve, situated inside the valve casing. The remaining integral part of the valve, are flanging located at either end of the casing.
