Festo VZQA pneumatic pinch valves
Pneumatic pinch valves from Festo are designed to provide reliable control and shut-off in food and drink production processes. The valves are durable, energy efficient, easy to service and flexible, thanks to their simple construction, and as a result provide a cost-effective alternative to conventional valves such as diaphragm and ball valves.
The VZQA pinch valves are a clean and technically straightforward solution for use with a wide range of media such as liquid, fibrous, particulates or granular substances. They provide smooth media flow and as such they are suitable for optimising filling and metering systems. Their compact design saves valuable installation space, which enables engineers to enhance the design of their process.
The high-performance valves are easy to service, which enables food processing managers to save downtime and associated costs. The pinch valve’s sealing cartridge can be changed in just a few minutes in four simple steps without special tools, and they can be cleaned easily thanks to their full media passage flow and little dead space. The sealing cartridge is available in EPDM, NBR and Silicone to suit a wide range of demanding applications and media.
Made from aluminium or stainless steel, the pinch valves are suitable for challenging environments and the internal parts offer durability against aggressive media. Thanks to a patented sealing cartridge, the valves can withstand the high demands in continuous daily operation, whether abrasive, corrosive, highly viscous or neutral media is used.
