Pinch valve - For complete blocking or flow rate control for materials in pneumatic transfer lines
Pinch valves permit the interception of the flow of materials in pneumatic conveying systems. Cheap solution, easy to install and with low maintenance, pinch valves are ideal for the passage of fluids such as liquid, gas or powder and to ensure complete sealing when closing.
12 models : from Ø 13 (VM013) to Ø 200 (VM0200)
The pinch valves are designed to be used to intercept the material flow in pneumatic conveying systems, or other pipelines (dense, corrosive or pasty mixture). The internal flexible sleeve is reshaped in such a way that the passage is hermetically sealed.
Operating mode :
In the open position the internal cross section of the valve is identical with the connecting pipe diameter. The full bore-through passage is a major asset to avoid clogging problems.
By introducing compressed air or water under pressure through the threaded bore into the interior of the valve, the internal flexible sleeve is reshaped in such a way that the passage is hermetically sealed (suitable for powders, granules, fibres, dense mixtures and liquids).
Position 1 :
The valve is in open position. its inner section is identical to the one of the piping.
Position 2 :
By introducing compressed air or pressurized wtaer inside the body, the flexible sleeve bends to completely close the passage.
