A manufacturer relies on pinch valves from the VMP series for the production of quick-release fasteners. These valves control and shut off cleaning & degreasing solutions that are used for cleaning the production plant.
The manufacturer who specialises in fasteners has relied on pinch valves from AKO Armaturen for more than 10 years to control the cleaning & degreasing solutions within the production process.
"We have received very high quality at a sensible price"
The DN 25 POM pinch valves fitted with a sleeve made out of natural rubber are used to control the transport of a diluted sodium hydroxide solution (25 %) and a degreasing solution that are supplied by quick valves within the production process. “We are very happy with the valves from AKO Armaturen”, is how the engineer in charge expressed his overall satisfaction with the products from AKO Armaturen.
The installed pinch valves have since become an integral part of the machine and have helped to further improve the effectiveness of the entire process. This is due not least to the fact that wear to the internal rubber sleeve now does not require the replacement of the entire valve but only the affected rubber sleeve. The other valve components can be installed again with the new sleeve.
Replacement of the valve components (housing, sleeve or connections) can also be completed quickly and easily by the company's own personnel. No special know-how or tools are required. System downtimes are thus reduced to a minimum.
