Versagrip Solenoid Pinch Valves are designed to provide greater flexibility for an array of fluidic control system applications.
Versagrip Solenoid Pinch Valves are designed to provide greater flexibility for an array of fluidic control system applications. Because pinch valves use tubing, they can have a longer life than conventional valves and, because they don't stick or leak, pinch valves require less maintenance and yield reduced down time. These pinch valves gives engineers more options by allowing them to select tubing with an average durometer rating of up to 60 Shore A, and media pressure of up to 15 psi or 1 bar. In addition, flexible tubing models are available to support an array of disposable bag materials and sizes.
