Sanitary Diaphragm Valves | Built for Biotech
While diaphragm valves are well suited to a variety of applications, many manufacturers ignore the inherent difference in quality standards of the biotech industry by offering an industrial valve that is simply re-branded as “aseptic” or “hygienic”. When you consider the value of product lost due to contamination in the biotech industry, the need for a sanitary diaphragm valve developed specifically for these high purity applications becomes clear.
Benefits of the Aquasyn Design
Integral Sealing Ridge
Most diaphragm valve manufacturers locate the principle seal on the diaphragm itself, away from the process stream, creating a ledge that can result in the entrapment of process fluids. Aquasyn machines the sealing ridge of the valve body at the intersection of the flow chamber, leaving fewer places for process fluids to remain during cleaning.
Additionally, our patented Tork-Tite® Feet at the bonnet corners hold the diaphragm in a fixed position, with controlled compression. A zero-leakage seal is achieved while preventing extrusion of the diaphragm into the flow chamber. These unique features provide the benefits of minimal entrapment potential, consistent, repeatable flow characteristics and extended diaphragm life.
