Pinch Valves with Single-Use Components


A trend toward single-use (SU) components is evident in the bio-processing market. Factors such as scalability, flexibility, and the elimination of cleaning have all driven bio-processing equipment manufacturers to replace traditional hard stainless steel piping and valves with disposable, flexible, sterile tubing sets or cartridges and pinch valves.

Bio-processing equipment designers now look to fluid control components that accept disposable tubing, specifically pinch valves such as the Acro 934 and 935 valves. Pinch valves play a critical role in “non-wetted” fluid system designs, where the internal valve components must be isolated from the media.

They frequently act as a safety valve and provide proportional fluid/pressure control. Use of peristaltic pumps, pinch valves, and ultrasonic sensors allow the fluid control and monitoring to be done outside the fluid path.
