The Food Grade Pneumatic Pinch Valve with a food safe natural rubber sleeve for shut-off control applications with abrasive, corrosive or fibrous media. The pneumatic pinch valve can withstand a maximum operating pressure of 6 bar (87 psi). The control pressure (air) is max 2 bar (29 psi) higher than the pressure of the medium. The food grade air operated pinch valves are designed for biopharmaceutical processing, food and beverage, and industrial applications where sterility and wash down procedures are needed.
Food Grade Pneumatic Pinch Valves are air-piloted devices designed to open or close tubes for controlling flow of liquids and gases. Other valve types have internal passages that may cause small amounts of fluid to remain in the valve. The air operated pinch valve has no areas or dead volume where fluid can become trapped. Only the inside of the tubing has contact with the fluid.
The food grade air operated pinch valve features a simple, proven and cost-effective design. Virtually maintenance-free, the sleeve is the valve’s only wetted part, eliminating possible contamination of the process materials.

In the traditional industry and food industry, some abrasive solid or liquid products containing particles, powders, fibers, and slurry are often transported through pipelines. A pneumatic pinch valve is the best choice.The VF15 air operated pinch valve is a valve with excellent wear resistance and Read More »
When the control gas is not input in the pneumatic pinch valve, the cavity between the rubber sleeve and the valve body is in communication with the atmosphere, and the rubber sleeve is in an outward tension state under fluid pressure. Since there are reinforced plies arranged at a certain angle in Read More »
The pneumatic pinch valve series products have no sealing points and will not leak. They are resistant to particle corrosion and will not be blocked when transporting liquids containing fibers. Its performance is comparable to imported products, and it has the advantages of a short supply period, re Read More »
