Total Cost of Owning a Mechanical Pinch Valve

Referring to any maintenance of a mechanical pinch valve as frequent would be a misnomer. Over the lifetime of ownership, occasional replacement of the pinch valve sleeve must be done. This occurs when the elasticity or integrity of rubber is compromised, either by age, heat, or abrasion. Replacing the sleeves is rapid (with all parts at hand--not more than a handful of minutes) and requires no special skill, technique, or proprietary tools. Sleeves are affordable; and combined with such minimal maintenance time, total cost of ownership (TCO) is low.


The Special Design of AKO’s Sleeves

Not all pinch valve sleeves are created equally with regards to durability and composition. While other manufacturers may build quality pinch valves, the chemical composition of the rubber is proprietary and refined only for AKO. The trade secret composition of AKO’s rubber, reinforced with an eleatic fabric-like mesh yields an ultra-long lasting and abrasive resistant sleeve. The long service-life contributes to a lower total cost of ownership than competing valves. AKO also offers 10 different grades of elasticity in their sleeves. The different grades offer the best life-cycle value depending on the frequency of opening and closing, temperature, abrasion, and installation particulars. Your Basecamp Sales Engineer will be knowledgeable on choosing the right sleeve.
