Clippard’s NPP series 2-way pneumatic pinch valves are air-piloted devices designed to open or 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 of dead volume where fluid can become trapped. Only the inside of the tubing has contact with the fluid. Common industries that utilize pinch valves for the benefit of isolating fluid from a mechanical valve including drug dispensing, laboratory equipment, wastewater, medical devices, chemical, food and beverage equipment, ceramic/glass/plastic, solids handling, and more. Other features include normally-open or normally-closed styles and an unobstructed flow path. It is designed to handle whole blood and particulate matter and a wide variety of replaceable tubing sizes and materials are available.
