Bimba BPVA pneumatic valve designed for wash down, sanitary applications.
Bimba launched its BPVA pneumatic pinch valve, designed as an alternative to traditional wetted valves by opening and closing flexible tubing to control the flow of media. With a life expectancy of 3 million cycles, the valve is offered in anodized aluminum or a completely stainless-steel, corrosion-resistant option for wash down and sanitary environments. Additional options include mounting brackets, various seal materials and magnetic position sensing to suit various applications. The valve comes in 1/8-, 1/4-, 3/8- and 1/2-inch tube slot sizes in normally closed or normally open configurations.
