Valves for Agricultural Fertilizer Success

The pinch valves are performing exceptionally well on these self-propelled sprayers, with the rubber sleeves (product codes M080-03X & M050-03X) being replaced every 6 months – 1 year approx.

The users have previously used lever operated butterfly valves and ball valves in the past, but say that the pinch valves are much more reliable, easy to operate and easier to repair at a lower cost.
