|Use||Used for handling air, water and normal liquid/gas flow|
Our range of diaphragm valves provide excellent sealing and isolation characteristics to contain fluid being controlled and prevent migration of the controlled fluid into the valve mechanisms or out of the valve. Diaphragm valves utilize a resilient diaphragm and a valve shoulder to engage a valve seat and prevent the flow of fluid past the valve seat.
It is needless to say that they could be used for handling air, water and normal liquid/gas flow as well. It is the most ideal valve to handle fluids that require high purity and should remain free from contamination.
There are two main categories of diaphragm valves: one type seals over a "weir" (saddle) and the other (sometimes called a "straight-way" valve) seals over a seat. The main difference is that a saddle-type valve has its two ports in line with each other on the opposite sides of the valve, whereas the seat-type has the in/out ports located at a 90 degree angle from one another. The saddle type is the most common in process applications and the seat-type is more commonly used as a tank bottom valve but exists also as a process valve. While diaphragm valves usually come in two-port forms, they can also come with three ports and even more. When more than three ports are included, they generally require more than one diaphragm; however, special dual actuators can handle more ports with one membrane.
