A compact construction with proven durability and reliability enable Air operated Pinch Valves to perform in different industries and cater for a large range of user applications. The innovative flattened form of the elastomer sleeve provides maximum use of the air pressure injected into the valve, with a saving of energy. Easily compressible gases such as air or another recognized pure gas can be utilized in pneumatic operations, with usually pressures of between 80-100 pounds per square inch.
Due to its design simplicity, a Pneumatic Pinch Valve system is easily controllable with an "on-off" activation and the capability of long-term operation with minimum maintenance. Because of the absorbent affect of air compression action, equipment is less susceptible to damage by shock or impact. In a state of compression, if gas is the selected operational media, it can be stored conveniently and utilized in the event of an electric power loss. This valve type has an established, extensive range of operational capabilities, including extremely adverse conditions and environments.
The Pneumatic operated Pinch Valve provides industry with the opportunity of a flexible air pressure operating system, with the capability of regulating, measuring, directing and virtually fully controlling the flow of a liquid, fluid or material product no matter its form. The valve construction is of the highest quality and offers a low frictional resistance, which has established them as a crucial component connected with pneumatic conveyor systems.
Increasing Production with Less Downtime
Air Pinch Valves are used in countless and varied and highly specialized industries, including sewage treatment, pharmaceutical and related applications, also food and beverage industries. A critical component to the performance of this valve variety is the elastomer sleeve of a Pneumatic Pinch Valve, which performs its functions from the action of "pinching" by applied atmospheric pressure. The purpose of the elastomer sleeve is to seal-off the product flow when in a closed position and permit a free flow on release of the pressure. Inherent pressure exerted by the product flow enables the opening function, allowing the continuation of the processing.
The versatile and high performance capabilities of the Air operated Pinch Valve has enabled a large and varied number of industries to increase production capacity. This was achieved by the ability of the valve to process liquids and material products with great efficiency, effectively and with influential reduced downtime. Concurrently, the valve provides users with the facilities of blocking, regulating and measuring a processing product.

Dispensing and control of the product flow is by an operator with the means of regulating the quantity of air pressure entering the valve. Numerous and varied types and sizes of processing applications are enabled by Pneumatic operated Pinch Valves, which include small processing plants and large conveyor systems used by heavy industries. The demands of industry are constantly changing, improving, seeking increased production capacity and greater cost efficiency. Innovative and ongoing development is needed by valve manufacturers, for them to meet and exceed their customer demands. Maintaining awareness of their markets and a constant exchange of information with their customers are regarded as highly important factors in their research and development criteria.
