Pinch valves, squeeze valves for hoses

Pinch valves or hose squeeze valves are used wherever a special level of hygiene is required, for example in the medical sector, in analysis technology, in beverage vending machines or where special media are controlled or switched.


Design and function of a pinch valve

Pinch valves and hose squeeze valves of A. u. K. Müller are electromagnetically controlled and differ substantially in design from other valves. The liquid is controlled by pinching off a hose. There is no valve seat or diaphragm. This eliminates the formation of vortices or dead spaces.

The resistance to chemicals depends on the chosen material of the hose. The valve itself does not come into contact with the respective medium.

Benefits of Pinch valves and hose squeeze valves

  • No dead spaces (suitable for high hygiene requirements)
  • Robust construction
  • any installation position
  • chem. Resistance depends only on the hose
  • no valve parts in contact with media (only hose material in contact with media)
  • easy replacement of the hose
  • easy to maintain (hose can be replaced very easily)
  • Flow possible in both directions
