Aseptic and hygienic Pinch Valves
The new aseptic Pinch Valve series VMCE is an impressive model with it's hygienic design. This flexible modular system has excellent cleanability, as well as the advantage of a long lifetime of the Pinch Valve sleeve.
Installed in pipelines, the VMC Pinch Valves have a 100% tight shut-off function of the Pinch Valve sleeve, and can also be used with the aid of an electro-pneumatic proportional valve for coarse control or metering of a metal stream.
Air operated pinch valves of the VMCE series are available in nominal diameters of DN10-DN150.
