Rubber pinch valve is made up of rubber membranes. Its features include simple design, economic price, and abrasion and corrosive resistance. It is suitable for a wide range of bulk materials. It can also be used for food safety. The inner bushing of the valve is made of fluoro rubber, silicone resin, or nitrile rubber.
Pinch valves have many applications. They are ideal for a variety of industries, including food, beverage, and pharmaceutical processing. They are approved for use in EX zones and can handle all types of abrasive media. These valves can also be used for waste water treatment and crop spraying.
Pinch valves have a rubber sleeve and a plastic or cast iron body. The membrane is sealed inside the housing, which reduces the chances of contamination. They can be custom designed for your application and are made from different types of rubber.
The simple design of a rubber pinch valve allows for its quick and easy replacement. The sleeve is made of rubber, and it has good corrosion and wear resistance. Its design also ensures adequate bearing pressure. Pinch valves are available in different materials to meet the needs of different flow media. For example, EPDM rubber pinch valves are designed for higher temperatures. Choosing the right material for the job is crucial.
Pinch valves are commonly used in a variety of industries. They consist of a metal frame and a rubber sleeve. The sleeve is made from various rubber compounds. Pinch valves are easy to maintain, since only the sleeve comes in contact with the flowing media.
Pinch valves are a popular choice in many industries, including wastewater treatment plants, power plants, coal conveying, mining, and sludge discharge lines. They are also often used in chemical processes to handle corrosive media, powders, and particles. These products can also be found in paper mills, pulp mills, glass manufacturing, and electronics.
When purchasing pinch valves, consider the material that will be used. Natural rubber is the rubber pinch valve standard material. It offers excellent abrasion resistance, rebound resilience, and tear strength. Additionally, natural rubber has low maintenance costs, which is essential for most applications.
Suitable for abrasives and corrosives
Stainless steel pumps are well suited for transferring corrosive liquids. They have high impact elasticity, mechanical strength, and high temperature resistance. In addition, they are tearproof and flame retardant. These properties make them suitable for use in chemical processing, heat transfer fluids, and various other applications.
For grinding stainless steel, aluminum oxide is best, while zirconia is suitable for cutting stainless steel. However, ceramic abrasives are more effective on harder stainless steels.
Easy to change on-site
Pinch valves are easy to change on-site and offer several benefits over other types of valves. In addition to their ability to close even without air pressure, they are also easy to maintain. A variety of replacement parts are available for them, including the sleeve.
ThinkTANK pinch valves are made from a durable reinforced fabric and high-grade rubber sleeve. Their design ensures that the valve is resistant to wear and maintain constant performance. They are also easy to change, and they don’t require any special tools for replacement. This makes them ideal for high-volume applications, such as in iron and steel production, foundries, and aluminium production.
