RF Valves

Founded in 1993 in Maryland and Finland, RF VALVES, INC. was built on an idea for a better pinch valve. Two entrepreneurs – Esko Riikonen and Eric Feldmann - patented an innovative expansion fold elastomer tube that lasts 2 to 4 times longer than traditional tubes and a pinch valve design that allows for in-line tube replacement, cutting maintenance time by 75%. Engineers in a wide range of industries were thrilled with the valve’s performance, and still are today.
