A local company producing ready to eat fresh salads are using pinch valves from AKO UK within their wash system.
How Does The Pinch Valve Assist?
The company have grilled covered drains running throughout the production area. These collect all water and debris, and then take it to a waste recovery system that is situated outside. The drains have a constant flow of water to stop any blockages appearing. The pinch valve is used to divert water from one side of the factory to the other, every 20 minutes.
