Electromagnets designed as pinch valves are mainly used in medical and analytical technology, in chemical processing and in measurement and control technology as well as for the reliable control of difficult materials. Other areas of application are liquid filling systems in the food sector.
With the choice of high-quality materials and customised development, it is possible to realise products in series and in any design with a wide range of specifications.
Pinch valves can be controlled by compressed air, water pressure, fluid or electromagnetically and usually consist of an elastomeric hose section, a valve body and a mechanism that compresses the hose.
When the mechanism is activated, it presses on the hose and squeezes it. This stops or reduces the flow of the liquid or gas inside the hose. When the pressure on the hose is released, the hose can return to its original shape and the flow continues.
A pinch valve offers a number of features that make it attractive for various applications.
Pinch valves have few disadvantages.
For example, pinch valves are unsuitable for high temperature applications. Due to the elastomeric property of the pinch valve sleeve, the pinch valve is not designed for high temperature applications. The limiting factor is the silicone tube. Temperatures up to 200 degrees can be realised.
The pinch valves from Schramme stand for uncompromising quality and components with added value in the use of industrial applications. Customers trust in TÜV-tested and certified safety, functionality and top delivery performance.
