Pinch Valves


Pinch Valves

Pinch valves offer media separation capability and are used in applications where critical fluids must be handled without direct contact to the media. They operate by clamping down on a tube inserted into a slot in the valve, this pinch action acts to stop fluid flow.

A key feature of the valve is that it has no dead volume where fluid can get trapped making it suitable for applications requiring a high level of hygiene control.

Pinch valves are used across a broad range of market segments and applications, but are particularly suited to medical, bioprocessing, biotechnology, pharmaceutical, chemical, industrial and food and beverage. Typical life science applications include dialysis machines and IV drug delivery systems.

Both solenoid and pneumatic versions are available for complete assurance of media non-contamination, fast tubing change out and easy valve replacement.

Versagrip™ Solenoid Pinch Valves

Versagrip Solenoid Pinch Valve

The new Versagrip™ solenoid pinch valve product line offers flexibility and affordability from a wide selection of models and configurations. Solenoid pinch valves are particularly suited for medical clinics and hospitals as they do not require an internal compressor to operate. Versagrip™ solenoid pinch valves are ideal for low-pressure applications with smaller diameter tubes.

Features:

  • Standard 24VDC x 3A power input
  • Supports tubing sized from 0.063 - 0.375 inch OD (1.6 - 9.5mm)
  • Supports up to 60 Shore A average durometer tubing and 15 psi media pressure
  • Available in single tube N/O, N/C or dual tube toggling N/O-N/C formats

Pneumatic Pinch Valves

PNEUMATIC PINCH VALVES

Pneumatic Pinch Valves are designed to handle higher pressure applications, where more force is needed to control flow. They are typically used with harder and larger diameter tubes requiring higher pinch force.

Features:

  • Compact design
  • Pressure up to 75 psi
  • Easy snap in tube slot
  • Panel splash seals for washdown procedures
