AK Muller

AK Muller's range of specialised valves include a comprehensive range of plastic body solenoid valves and solenoid pinch valves.

Solenoid Pinch Valves

A Pinch Valve is a solenoid operated valve allowing a flow passage through a flexible tube which is 'pinched' off to produce a tight seal. Only the easily replacable tubing comes into contact with the fluid making this style of valve ideal for applications where a high level of hygiene is required. This design avoids using the traditional valve seat and membrane which can cause turbulence in the fluid flow and create dead areas in the valve housing where media can collect. These valves are usually 24VDC, other DC voltages available on request.

 


Normally Open Solenoid Pinch Valve

Tubing Range: 1.5 - 2.2mm OD, Wall Thickness 0.25 (shore hardness 60)
Pressure Range: 0 - 1 bar (depending on tube)

 


Normally Closed Solenoid Pinch Valve

Tubing Range: 1.5 - 2.2mm OD, Wall Thickness 0.25 (shore hardness 60)
Pressure Range: 0 - 1 bar (depending on tube)

Tank Drain Valves

These 2/2-way direct acting dump valve of nominal diameter DN40 & DN50 are normally closed, medium separated having a single chamber valve body with the inlet at ninety degrees to the outlet. They can be manufactured in various materials and equipped with threaded or hose connections. Ideal drain valves for tanks, industrial washing machines the valves can be equipped with an emergency manual override, to ensure the drainage of tanks in event of power loss.

Medium Separated Diaphragm Valves

These 2/2-way solenoid valves are suitable for use in low pressure applications such as controlling flow from a tank and can handle a maximum pressure head of 60 cm. The valve is direct acting in operation, normally closed (NC) and the internal plunger assembly is separated from the medium by a diaphragm. Coils are available in all common voltage and frequency ranges.
