Manual Pinch Valves Weirflex
Red Valve Manually Actuated Pinch Valves are reliable, maintenance-free, cost-effective valves engineered for tough slurries, abrasives, and corrosive chemical applications. The 100% full port design eliminates any dead spots or crevices, seats or bearings where slurry can hang up and impair operation or even cause complete valve failure. Manual Pinch Valves feature bi-directional droptight shutoff in a design that meets the same face-to-face dimensions as gate, plug, and ball valves up to 12". Manual Pinch Valves employ Red Valve's state-of-the-art elastomer technology to provide smooth venturi flow, centerline closure, and excellent throttling characteristics. A number of options are available, such as the Series 75B design for buried-service conditions. AWWA nuts, chainwheels, stem extensions, and bevel gear actuators are also available.
The new WEIRFLEX from Red Valve is designed to specifically meet the needs of stormwater and combined sewer systems. The valve features a 100% full-port opening for unobstructed flow when in the open position. To control the rate at which stormwater enters a collection system, the valve is closed from the bottom, creating an adjustable weir. The weir can be closed up to 90% of the total pipeline diameter. This allows operators to adjust for seasonal rainfall changes, wet-weather conditions, storm events or changing population demands
