Jindex Innovation 1 - Patented FAST Sleeve Change

Supplier: Jindex
27 November, 2007

The unique “In-Line” FAST sleeve change allows the sleeve to be changed without having to remove the valve from the pipeline or disconnect electricals and pneumatics.

FAST CHANGE = SHORT DOWNTIME = LOW COST = UNDER BUDGET

TRADITIONAL:

With traditional Pinch Valves, changeover of worn sleeves can be a long and complicated process. Due to the mechanism of sleeve retention, traditional pinch valves require removal of the valve from the pipe and partial or complete dismantling to replace the sleeve. This removal neccessitates disconnection of power, control and pneumatic cabling.

For traditional valves above 150 mm (6 inch) their weight requires hoisting equipment and additional personnel resulting in extra hours of process downtime. This does not occur with the Jindex “in-line” sleeve replacement valve.

NEW:

Jindex Pinch Valve:

• The patented FAST change sleeve system reduces changeover time from hours to a matter of minutes with no requirement for extra personnel or lifting equipment.

• This translates directly to the bottom line by increasing plant availability.
