BMG extends FPV valve range

April 2014 Valves, Actuators & Pump Control

BMG’s Fluid Power division has extended its range of FPV valves to include new open frame pinch valves, designed for enhanced operating efficiency and extended service life in diverse sectors. These valves are particularly well suited for the control and isolation of abrasive slurries.

“These new open frame pinch valves, which have been developed on the successful design of Omsa’s patented FPV diaphragm valves, can also be fitted with replaceable polyurethane lined rubber sleeves as an option. This design increases the life span of the valve due to the high abrasion resistance of the polyurethane lining,” says Wayne Holton, BMG’s Fluid Power Division. “Pinch valves, with a design where the sleeve is pinched to close mechanically or automatically by fluid pressure in the body, are ideal for controlling the flow of liquids, powders, solids and abrasives.”

These pinch valves are available with a short and long frame design, in sizes between DN50 and DN500, with special face to face dimensions and larger sizes on request. The body is made from cast steel, but stainless steel is also available for specific applications. These valves have manual, pneumatic and hydraulic actuation.

FPV diaphragm and pinch valves, which are 100% locally manufactured, are available in many different materials, with various pressure ratings to meet exact requirements.
