CFX Moving Mesh Contact "Management"

I don't know if anyone has experienced this problem, I hope someone can help me. I'm simulating an injector and its mobile element obviously moves up and down. Until now the only way to simulate its complete closure is to have some interpolation. I would like to ask you if it is possibile with Ansys CFX to simulate the complete closure with a moving mesh, i.e. CFX is capable of eliminating some elements in the contact region.
So far I haven't been able to find either tutorials or helps regarding this subject.
It should be a news of R 13.0.

I am not certain but I do not think the variable density is properly accounted for.
Other ways of closing a valve are:
1) Use a GGI interface and slide it shut. GGIs correctly handle an interface which can open or shut.
2) Use standard moving mesh to squash the pinch point down so much that the flow is basically stopped. Then remesh with a new mesh where the pinch point is shut and continue the simulation.
Both of these methods work fine with compressible flow, but sometimes they require subtle changes to the geometry or the assumption that the flow is insignifcant when you interpolate to the closed mesh.
