A drop in, panel mount ready solution for up to 1 inch OD diameter bioprocess tubing applications

Concord, CA – November 1, 2012 – Acro Associates, Inc. today introduced two new models, the 935HF (high force) and 936 pneumatic pinch valve designed to meet the needs of single-use bioprocessing systems. This new model allows systems using sterile single use disposable tubing sets to control dispensing or fluid control through 2-way normally open, or closed default operation valve positions. The model 935HF supports tubing sizes up to 1.0 inch or 25mm OD (outer diameter) and media pressures up to 4 Bar. The Model 936 support tubing sizes up to 1.5 inch or 38mm OD. Both units are panel mount ready, come with easy loading tube slots and are available in black anodized aluminum or 316L stainless steel materials.

“Finding drop in ready pinch valve solutions that can support larger diameter tubing for bioprocessing systems has been challenge that our customers have voiced to us in past. Our two new Models address this by enabling customers to scale up volumes, pressures and flow rates using standard biopharmaceutical grade disposable tubing to move more fluid in the same time” said Winston Wong, Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
