Sanitary Diaphragm Valves for Medicine
What is a sanitary diaphragm valve?
A sanitary diaphragm valve is considered a highly hygienic valve due to its mode of operation. This technique is called “input from above.” The upper inlet facilitates the welding and extraction of the clamps during the maintenance of the valve.
Sanitary diaphragm valves in the pharmaceutical industry
Sanitary diaphragm valves are the preferred choice of valves used in the pharmaceutical industry. This is due to its well-known characteristic of being very clean. They are ideal for applications where strangulation, unobstructed flow, and positive shutdown are required for sensitive and ultrapure media. These means are found in the pharmaceutical industry. Sanitary diaphragm valves are the only truly hygienic flow valves for applications in the pharmaceutical industry. The rest of the appropriate valves have 90-degree settings.
How Does the sanitary diaphragm valve work for medicine?
The sanitary diaphragm valve works by isolating the treatment medium from its surroundings and from all the moving parts of the valve. In this way, it successfully protects the contamination from media, thus guaranteeing the continuous operation of the valve without interruption.
Sanitary diaphragm valves have the following advantageous qualities: vapor resistance, high durability, flexibility for maintenance, as well as being quite clean and hygienic. They also have some other features. The sanitary diaphragm valve can be electronically polished to achieve a beautiful and better surface finish.
When mounted in line with a two-degree tilt angle, the valve is automatically vented. The body of the sanitary diaphragm valve has no trapping zones. They have their body mainly of forged 316L stainless steel. The main difference between the molding materials and the forged pieces is that the molded materials are more porous than the forged materials. Since the valves are made of forged materials, the porosity of the materials allows the valves to be polished to finishes up to 10 Ra.
As “top-entry” valves, sanitary diaphragm valves can be welded to the desired location and their seals can be easily removed from the system. In fact, the diaphragms and covers of these diaphragm valves can be worked during maintenance without having to remove the valve body from the treatment lines. The sanitary diaphragm valve body has a unique design called a unique weir design. This simple but important design allows the valves to be configured and configured in addition to a single block valve. Individual blocks can be customized for specific or specific applications.
