Flow Control Pinch Valves from GEEPLUS
17 November 2020
Geeplus solenoid valves are used in a variety of applications, where the solenoid’s plunger is used to control the flow of fluid or air. In the Geeplus Pinch Valve, when the solenoid is energized, the plunger retracts, closing the valve. When power to the solenoid is cut, the plunger is released, reopening the valve.
In some cases, a greater degree of control is necessary than simply opening and closing the valve. For these valve applications, a proportional or semi-proportional solution is implemented, where the armature moves in proportion to the power of the current.
The pinch valves are robust in manufacture and thoroughly reliable in operation. Pinch valves are used to facilitate the flow of liquid through a tube by opening and closing the flow, without any contact between the liquid and the valve itself. The tube is pinched between a fixed and a moving bar (pinch elements); as these are closed together the tube is pinched closed and the flow is shut off.
