SwitchEZ™ Solenoid-Operated Electric Pinch Valves
Precision Flow Control
Pinch valve is a full bore or fully ported type of control valve, using a pinching effect to close or open a fluid/gas flow. A solenoid pinch valve is a solenoid-operated device, which is designed to open and close tubes for controlling flow of liquids or gases electronically.
It opens or closes the flexible tube by energizing the solenoid retracts or attracts the plunger. This type of valve is ideal for applications requiring frequent changes of the flow path, because only the easily replaceable tubing contacts the flow media.
The SwitchEZ™ series pinch valves are available as normally closed, normally open, and closed/open (3-way diverting), and in single or multi-tube configurations. These compact and low power pinch valves come equipped with silicone tubing, or they can be used to pinch other compatible user-specified tubings. These valves are capable of handling a wide range of corrosive or high purity fluids. These are ideal where contamination is an issue, as the fluid only comes in contact with the tubing, not the valve. Tubing replacement is quick and easy, making these suitable for pharmaceutical or sanitary applications.
Fast switching time
Compact designs with low operational noise
No contamination of the valve
Fast response time
Control flow without direct contact between the fluid and the valve
Excellent for sanitary and pharmaceutical applications
Choice of Tubing Materials:
Standard Silicone tubing (by default, the valve is configured with standard silicone tubing )
PharMed BPT tubing
Medical/Laboratory grade silicone tubing (platinum-cured silicone)
Sanitary food grade silicone tubing (platinum-cured silicone)
SwitchEZ pinch valve can be configured to use customer supplied tubing. The recommended durometer should be in the range of 45-60 Shore A
VCool™ PWM Control Module
The VCool™ PWM controller provides an efficient way to energize the solenoid valves with less power consumption.
It enables lower heat generation and lower temperature of the valve during the operation. With VCool ™ controller, the solenoid valve can be energized indefinitely
