Flow-Rite Announces Patented Needle Pinch Valve Updates
Byron Center, MI - April 29, 2011

Flow-Rite Controls is proud to announce the latest updates to their patented needle pinch valves.  New features include a molded-in scale and molded-in treads.  Private labeling is now also available.

The valve meters from zero to full flow allowing for optimal usage and fine adjustment.  The 1mm divided metered scale on the valve body enables calibration to be recorded and replicated, thereby eliminating the traditional guesswork.  Valve installation does not require fittings, cutting or removal of existing tubing. Fluid contact with the valve has been eliminated; therefore, it can be used, reused and disposed without fear of contamination. 

The valves are manufactured from Delrin® acetal resin for its strength and durability. Intended for various soft wall tubing sizes, the valves fit an outside diameter (OD) from 4.0mm to 13.0mm or 5/32” to 1/2”.  Various applications include medical devices, fluid delivery systems, food and beverage, chemical processing, pneumatic systems, pharmaceuticals, and laboratory equipment.  Like all Flow-Rite products, needle pinch valves are made in the USA.

Delrin ® is a registered trademark of DuPont for its acetal resins.
