The easy way to control media flows

Whether you're looking for normally closed or normally open solutions, the pneumatic pinch valve VZQA enables you to control media flows – such as granulates, liquids containing solids or highly viscous and abrasive media – even more effectively, and very economically too. Virtually no flow resistance, no blockages, very little dead space, and an easy-to-clean design.
The individual components of the VZQA feature a modular configuration that can be adapted to your application. The sealing cartridge and diaphragm can be replaced easily without the need for special tools.
