Pinch Valves Experience within this Application
The company have been using the VMP plastic Pinch Valve by AKO for 4 years. An AKO Pinch Valve was supplied as a standard fitment with their new waterjet machine and they have maintained it ever since.
Depending on their workload, the rubber sleeve inside the valve is replaced every 4-6 months within this particular application.
The profile cutting company are satisfied with the performance of the Pinch Valve overall, and are going to look into the option of the VMC model which will be more suitable for the abrasive application.
