The Jindex Pinch Valve range has been designed to solve process problems associated with controlling the flow of abrasive or corrosive fluids. Industries such as mineral processing,pulp and paper, power generation, chemical handling, effluent treatment, water and waste water use the Jindex Pinch Valve.
The Jindex Pinch Valve consists of a tough but flexible, full or reduced bore cylindrical sleeve which forms part of the pipeline. The valve is closed mechanically via movement of the pinch bars located on opposite sides of the sleeve.
The Jindex Pinch Valve will improve system control and lower maintenance costs.
Simple designs are often the best. Most other valve types use multiple components such as glands, packing, seats, seat retainers, inner linings and outer casing, wear surface, and main control components such as discs, shafts, plugs, gates etc.
The heart of the Jindex Pinch Valve is the sleeve, a single component which performs all of these functions.
Low Operating Costs
FAST sleeve change, - no need to remove valve from the pipeline or to disconnect electricals or pneumatics
Lowest pressure drop of any control valve in the market
Single wearing part
Long lasting abrasion resistant rubber or polyurethane sleeve materials
Smooth full-bore unobstructed .ow minimises wear
Unobstructed flow reduces pumping costs
No glands or seats which require regular adjustment or replacement
Single wearing part reduces spare parts inventory
Tight Consistent System Control
No scale or seat build-up
Specific control valve (SCV) design gives near linear flow characteristics
Shut-off achieved even with solids present
Full-bore open position achieved even with settled solids in pipeline unlike a butterfly valve which often cannot open with settled solids in pipeline
Special sleeves for negative pressure applications

At Jindex We Try To Make Your Life Easier By Applying Our Unique Combination Of Process Knowledge And Valve Expertise.
We can help answer
• Which valve type is technically the best for your process?
• Which valve types will definitely not work?
• Within a given valve type, what are the material and design detail choices?
• Which actuation type is best for your valve?
• Position control, isolation, failsafe?
Whether on the phone or on-site our team is committed to challenging tradition, not just copying with tired industry norms.
Better technical valve selection, lower capital cost and reduced maintenance costs is our aim for all of your projects.
