Manual PV

The ARTeSYN® Pinch Valves (PVs) are designed for flow control in Biopharmaceutical
manufacturing. ARTeSYN valves outperform other pinch valves because of easy maintenance, simple installation, compact and durable design and 0 to 100% fluid control.

Back to all products

PVs are non-product contact meant for tube and hose sizes from  ¼” to 1" ID. The PVs are matched to use on existing tubing to provide flow control and automation where it did not previously exist. These valves have a non-rotating hemispherical plunger design that allows for very fine fluid control. They are available with ON/OFF and modulating pneumatic actuation, as well as multiple brands of electronic feedback indicators.

The ARTeSYN® Pinch Valves can be easily adapted for mounting to skids or fixtures and thanks to the ARTeSYN® design allow for rapid and easy tubing changes.
