The Clippard NPV Series Pinch Valve is a solenoid-operated device that is designed to open and close tubes for controlling flow of liquids and gases. Other valve types have internal passages that may cause small amounts of fluid to remain in the valve. Pinch valves have no areas or dead volume where fluid can become trapped. Only the inside of the tubing contacts the fluid. Energizing the solenoid retracts or attracts the plunger, which opens or closes the tube. De-energizing the solenoid will allow the plunger to return to its original state.
• Small, compact design • Hygienic and easy to clean (replace tubes) • Low power consumption • High cycle life • Can handle whole blood and particulate matter • Unobstructed flow path • Each valve comes with 12" of medical/laboratory grade silicone tubing, pre-installed • Variety of tubing sizes available • Tubing is easily replaceable
Valve Type: 2-Way, Normally-Open & Normally-Closed Medium: Air, water, gas, compatible fluids Max. Pressure Range: 20 to 30 psig Power Consumption: 1.0 to 7.2 Watts Response Time: 5 to 25 ms Electrical Connections: 18" wire leads Voltage: 12 or 24 VDC Mounting: #2-56, #4-40 Wetted Materials: Medical grade silicone tubing CE, RoHS Compliant
Common industries that use pinch valves for the benefits of isolating fluid from a mechanical valve include: drug dispensing, laboratory equipment, waste water, medical devices, chemical, food and beverage equipment, ceramic/glass/plasti
c, and bulk and solids handling.
