-In response to the growing demand for small-size low-power control components, the new range of pinch valves will suit a wide variety of applications calling for control of water, air and other non-aggressive fluids across a wide range of industries.
A development of Geeplus acclaimed and widely used general purpose solenoid valves, the pinch valves are robust in manufacture and thoroughly reliable in operation.
Typically used with silicon tubing as the carrying device, the pinching is achieved by energizing the solenoid. This cuts off the media in the tube by pinching or releasing the tubing. The fluid can flow in either direction.
The pinch valves can control any and all fluids that are compatible with the tubing material, while protecting them from all contamination — including temperature, which is of particular importance when used in medical applications. Their accuracy of operation also makes them suitable for dosing.
Offering twin tube operation, the Geeplus pinch valve provides normally open/normally closed functions and measures 72.5mm in length and 24mm in diameter. The standard fixing plate is drilled to 30mm centres.
