BMG’s Fluid Power division has extended its range of FPV valves to now include new open frame pinch valves, designed for enhanced operating efficiency and extended service life in diverse sectors.
These valves, which were launched in August 2013, are particularly well suited for the control and isolation of abrasive slurries on the mines.
“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, which replace conventional rubber sleeves. This sleeve 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.
BMG’s extensive range of quality branded valves includes resilient seated gate valves, butterfly valves and ball type check valves. Also in the range are knife gate valves, thermoplastic valves and angle seat valves. Key to BMG’s portfolio are FPV diaphragm, wedge gate and pinch valves.
BMG supports its extensive range of industrial valves with a technical support service to ensure optimum efficiency and extended service life of every valve.The company also offers a total process and lubrication management solution, to meet exact market demand.
