DIAPHRAGM VALVE
True Union
(1/2"-2"SOC./THD./FLANGED)

 

Design Advantages
         

• Solid thermoplastic body and bonnet for best overall corrosion resistance.

• Extra heavy EPDM diaphragm or optional PTFE diaphragm fully backed by EPDM, for long service life under the most severe conditions.

• Fully lubricated brass stem and sleeve.

• Unique concave/convex PTFE/ EPDM diaphragm design insures PTFE barrier returns to full open position.

• Standard, adjustable full close position over travel stop to eliminate premature diaphragm failure due to overtightening.

• Full stroke, fully protected open/close position indication.

• Stainless steel or plastic encapsulated external hardware.

• Longer service life and higher Cv values than rubber lined valves.

• High pressure, temperature and vacuum service rated, suitable for most applications.

• Can be used in lined, metal FRP or thermoplastic piping systems.

• Flanged application valves designed to fit between ANSI B16.5 Class 150 flanges.
