VMCE aseptic Pinch Valve

Sterile Sanitary Valves (CIP & SIP capable) for Chemical, Medical & Food Applications

Sanitary valves with a rubber pinching hose are specially designed for applications where sterility, purity, and cleanliness are of paramount importance. These valves are made to be sanitize-in-place (SIP) and clean-in-place (CIP) capable in order to prevent contamination by bacteria and any other foreign element. Common features of sanitary valves include a polished contact surface, free of crevices and dead spots, and easy cleaning. They are mostly used in chemical, medical, pharmaceutical, biotechnical, food, and dairy applications.

The Best Quick Shut Off Valves for Corrosive Media

Shut off valves can be described in a number of different ways, for instance the way they close – either by a metal gate, a rubber hose pinching, a ball turning, or a swiveling disc.

All types of shut off valves intend to do the same job, which is to close off the flow of a product whether it be gravity fed or pushed along using compressed air.

But which valve type is most suitable for the application being used?

air flow valves

Low Maintenance Air Flow Valves with Impact Resilience

One of the most widely used types of air flow valves is an air operated pinch valve. These valves are known for being highly reliable and cost effective when it comes to controlling the flow of solids, fluids, and slurries. Pinch air flow valves are the best choice for applications involving abrasive and other challenging materials.

Pinch Valve Design

Pinch Valves (also commonly nicknamed as squeeze valves, bladder valves, rubber hose valves, soft seated valves, hose valves or shut off valves), are made up of only 3 components.
These include the housing or body, end connections, and a rubber sleeve that fits inside.
