Linatex LinaValve KT

Linatex LinaValve KT

Linatex LinaValve KT is a handwheel operated open frame and Linatex premium rubber lined pinch valve. While having a minimum face to face dimension to accommodate tight installations, the LinaValve KT can still achieve both efficient modulating flow control and drip tight shut off through its centerline close and dual action pinch mechanism. The valve’s Linatex lined one-piece sleeve design makes it suitable for harsh, highly abrasive flow control applications while protecting the pinch mechanism and other parts from exposure to the process.


  • Full bore/full flow design results in low friction loss and high flow capacity.
  • Center pinch design for predictable linear flow performance, reduced turbulence and longer sleeve wear life.
  • Short valve length accomodates tight installation requirements.
  • One piece sleeve protects operating mechanism and body parts from exposure to process.
  • High flexibility sleeve design reduces closing forces, improves recovery to full open position and ensures drip tight closure.
  • Open body configuration allows easy visual evaluation of valve position, simplifies valve maintenance and sleeve replacement and lowers weight.
  • Elastomer sleeve reduces piping vibration and water hammer.
  • Low force manual handwheel actuation.
  • Sleeve’s full face flanges provide a reliable seal when the valve is bolted up to a standard flat face flange.
