Flow Control Pinch Valve Information

Medical-use pinch valves for precise `dial-in` control of soft tubing. Can be used for Calcium Reactors and Kalkreaktor effluent drip control and any CO2 or O3 flow control. Since that valve is external to the tubing, they can never clog.

**Variations of this product can be found in many online stores. The version we carry is of the highest quality. Although this item is eligible for price matching under our Low Price Guarantee, please be certain the product you want to price match is the same make and model.

Comments: After a few small flood accidents with dual sided control valves with airline tubing falling off the stems even though they were zip tied, I had enough of these failure points! In came this new Pinch Valve that ELIMINATED the fail points of conventional control valves! A simple but VERY effective means to prevent ANY type of accidents with airline tubing falling off. Indeed derived from the medical industry, it's worth it's price in gold for the aquarium community. The ONLY improvement I would suggest is finer drip control. The turn knob is a bit course. Either way, get this product. Hope this helps.

Great Flow Control

Comments: I was using the micro ball valve that came on my GEO 612 Ca reactor. The flow was very inconsistent. The flow would always stop up. So, I had to run it full open to prevent it from stopping. That sent my dKh through the roof. I found this by doing an internet search. I've been using it for about 5 days now. Wow!! The first night, I set the output flow I wanted, and it is still there. Great product. The only problems I see are the price of the product (over $13 for a tiny valve) and the shipping ($7 because it was shipped in a box that could probably hold a couple hundred of these).

Comments: This came with my Korallin calcium reactor. It's a cool little gadget, but pretty pricey for what essentially amounts to a plastic screw. Like another reviewer here I also had trouble with sediment build up on the inside of the tubing which eventually obstructed the flow. Still, it does exactly what it's supposed to do.

Comments: Purchased this valve to be used on a kalk top-off line and the precision with which you can simply dial in the drip rate is outstanding! I may mention that the drip rate is not being set to try to match evaporation rate, only the rate at which kalk is introduced into the sump. On the surface it seems a little pricey for its size, but the headaches eliminated with this valve easily justify its price. Definitely recommend.

Comments: Overall this is a great product. It is well made and performs as expected. I use it to adjust the drip on my kalk reactor with soft vinyl tubing. My only caveat was the size. I thought it would be a little bigger!

Comments: This little thing is simple but the best I could find. Precision in regulation is outstanding. Sensitive to sediment build up in the lumen of tubing which eventually may obstruct the flow. Yet pricy.
