Pneumatic Pinch Valves with Internal Thread Connection

AKO’s pneumatic (air operated) Pinch Valves with internal thread connection are available in sizes from DN10 to DN100.

Internally threaded Pinch Valves by AKO are compact and reliable units, consisting of only a rubber sleeve, body, and two BSP female threaded ends. The sleeve is clamped down into place by the threaded end connections. The limited parts required to form the internal thread Pinch Valve gives it an excellent total cost of ownership. No replacement seals, gaskets, rings, bolts etc are needed. The only wearable part is the rubber sleeve, which in many applications has a very long working life. This means you can install the Pinch Valve and leave it to do it’s job without fuss.
