Acro Associates, a wholly owned subsidiary of Bimba Manufacturing, launched the Versagrip Solenoid Pinch Valves, a solenoid (electric) product line designed to provide greater flexibility for a wide array of fluidic control system applications.
Versagrip Solenoid Pinch Valves join the Acro family of pinch valves, which include pneumatic pinch valves and Intelivalve, their fullest-featured pinch valve with built-in intelligence and whisper-quiet operation. Because pinch valves use tubing, they can have a longer life than conventional valves. Also, because they do not stick or leak, pinch valves require less maintenance and yield significantly reduced down time.
The Versagrip product line gives engineers more options by allowing them to select tubing with an average durometer rating of up to 60 Shore A, and media pressure of up to 1 bar. In addition, flexible tubing models are available to support a wide array of disposable bag materials and sizes.
“The Versagrip product line demonstrates Acro’s ability to continually leverage our experience to address the needs of the medical, bioprocessing, food & beverage and other industries. Combined with our comprehensive Pneumatics and Intelivalve products, the Versagrip line now gives Acro a more complete and diverse market offering”, said Winston Wong, director of sales and marketing.
