Ensuring a full, uninterrupted flow in process lines, especially where powders and granular materials are being handled, can be difficult. One way to eliminate the problem is to specify pinch valves.

Milton Roy UK offers a wide range of automatic pinch valves. These provide a complete seal without the need for glands. But they also ensure a full flow within the process line. Problems associated with pressure drop are avoided -- even when viscous or paste-like liquids are involved.

The valves comprise a cylindrical reinforced sleeve of natural or synthetic rubber assembled within the valve body. Valve closure is achieved by applying pressure, usually compressed air, which squeezes the sleeve into a flat configuration, made possible by the pattern of the reinforcement. This ensures the valve shuts tight.

Standard sleeves are made of natural rubber with Neoprene or food-grade rubber specified for hygienic applications.
