What makes RF Valves Special 

Founded in 1993 in Maryland and Finland, RF VALVES INC. emerged with the goal of creating an enhanced pinch valve. The founders, Esko Riikonen and Eric Feldmann, patented an innovative elastomer tube (or sleeve) featuring expansion folds, delivering a durability 2 to 4 times greater than traditional tubes. They also devised the pinch valve to facilitate tube replacement on the same line without disassembly, reducing maintenance time by 75%. Engineers from diverse industries were impressed by the valve's performance, a sentiment that persists to this day. 

Recognized as a brand synonymous with quality and performance, RF VALVE pinch valves address application challenges through their patented elastomer sleeve design and a commitment to quality materials and construction. When durability in challenging conditions is crucial, RF VALVE is a trusted choice.
