The AKO VF Type Flanged Pinch Valve

The best Pinch Valve for abrasive and many other applications




The Flanged VF type Pinch Valve comes in sizes 40mm – 300mm.

This valve works by the controlling medium of air pressure or water being used between the Pinch Valve body and the sleeve to give 100% closure (even against the larger abrasive particles) of the Pinch Valve. Exhausting the pressure causes the Pinch Valve to open. When open the sleeve is a true bore allowing unobstructed medium to flow through.
