AKO’s manual pinch valves advantages include the free flow of the product, minimum frictional resistance and low maintenance and operating costs.
A further advantage is the reduction of the parts in contact with the medium – the sleeve being the only component in contact with the product flow. In addition, deformation of the sleeve during the closing process causes any incrustations inside the sleeve to break away. This means that the manual Pinch Valve is a practically blockage-free valve solution. Furthermore, even larger solid particles are shut off by the sleeve, which is particularly resistant to abrasion and corrosion, hence shut off without leaks.
These types of manual Pinch Valves are typically used within industrial areas such as cement, pigments and granules, ceramics and glass, sewage water, mud, and more.
