pinch valve vs butterfly valve

Pinch Valves Vs. Butterfly Valves with Silo Safety

Controlled filling systems using butterfly valves are occasionally used on silo safety systems, but the flow through the valve is restricted by the butterfly disk, slowing down the filling process. The valve seat becomes contaminated with trapped product, resulting in spillage, waste and cross-contamination. The butterfly disk also wears very quickly increasing maintenance down time.

The use of a pinch valve eliminates these problems immediately.

valves for food

Looking at Valves for Food in Depth

Valves for food are devices that are carefully designed while keeping in mind the stringent demands of industrial applications where cleanliness and sterility are essential, such as the food and pharmaceutical industry. Each component is made using materials that ensure efficient sanitizing and cleaning, giving users the confidence that the processing environment in their industry is free from any kind of contamination.

wear resistant valve by AKO

Major Applications of Wear Resistant Valves

Wear resistant valves comprise of a rubber pinching tube inside the valve body that helps in controlling the flow of media. They have a robust construction and are very economical, which is why they are used in a wide range of industrial applications. The rubber sleeve is made up of high quality natural rubber and is the only part that needs to be replaced. Moreover, these wear resistant valve types require little to no maintenance and can be retrofitted in almost any application.

low clogging valve

Maintenance, Benefits & Applications of Low Clogging Valves

Manually actuated low clogging valves offer multiple features including maintenance-free operation, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. They are engineered to handle tough abrasives, slurries, and corrosive chemical flow media. The best part about manual low clogging valves is their 100% full port design that eliminates any crevices or dead spots in bearings or seats, where there is a possibility of slurry hanging up and impairing the entire operation, or in worst scenarios, cause complete valve failure.
