AKO Manual and control Pinch Valves - VZ Series

The VZ series manual and control pinch valve is available in the nominal diameter of DN80.
It is designed with a flange connection complying with DIN EN 1092 PN10/16 and ANSI B 16.5- 150 lbs as standard..

Structure of VZ series:

The structure of the VZ series manual or control pinch valve encompasses the sleeve -the essential part of every pinch valve- and a body. The pinch valve sleeve can be connected directly to the closing mechanism with so-called opening tabs, thereby ensuring forced opening. Only the sleeve is in the product flow (contact with the operating medium) of the VZ series manual and control pinch valve.

Materials of manual or control Pinch Valve VZ series:

A selection of 3 different elastomer grades for the sleeve (natural rubber, EPDM and neoprene) ensures that the VZ series manual and control pinch valves have a very wide and practically unrestricted field of application.
