Universal clamp-on tubing valve - Versatile, reliable, safe
The ARTeSYN pinch valves enable reliable fluid control of tubing fluid paths, as used in Allegro™ single-use systems, regardless of their materials of construction.
Applications range from simple transfer line control up to complex automated unit operations using either manual or pneumatic pinch valves.
Intuitive tool-free clamp-on installation, executed in a simple 3 step sequence, enables quick and reliable operation.
The unique central spot pinch in its specific encapsulated valve seat offers the highest closure reliability and consistency in flow output, even after intense pinch cycles, as required for critical biopharmaceutical fluid control.
The ARTeSYN valves are available in a variety of sizes, with specific valve seats which allow the fitting of regular and braided tubing from 6.4 mm (¼ in.), up to 25.4 mm (1 in.) internal diameter (ID).
With a wide range of pinch valve sizes – the ARTeSYN portfolio is suitable for upstream processing, downstream processing, and formulation and filling.
The valve bodies are manufactured from high end 316L stainless steel ensuring it complies with the highest industry standards.

A major biotech company with global operations has recently reviewed available technologies on market for safe, efficient and reliable control of fluids in single-use tubing. Here’s what they have to say about the selected ARTeSYN pinch valves:
ARTeSYN gets a "gold star" for innovation. The ARTeSYN pinch valve design is utterly reliable with a very progressive and positive shut-off at every pressure we employ.
The ARTeSYN pinch valve ensures that our manufacturing personnel no longer have issues with ratchet clamps and other types of closures leaking or becoming dislodged and allowing extremely valuable process chemistry to be contaminated or lost.
Finally, the overall service level we’re getting for these products is extremely good making it a well supported product.

- Buffer and media preparation
- Tangential flow filtration
- Bulk drug substance filling
- Final drug product filling
Closure PrincipleThe actuation of the central stem on conventional bioprocessing tubing results in a gradual hemispherical closure of the flow path. The carefully engineered combination of stem and valve seat to specific tube size offers unmatched closure resistance. This principle also minimizes the risk of tubing wear due to pinching.
