Diaphragm valves

April 4, 2003
Plast-O-Matic Valves Inc. announces the available of a pneumatically-operated Teflon diaphragm valve with spigot connections for high purity applications. Series BSD has no metals or elastomers in contact with the process liquid. Weighing as little as five ounces, the BSD permits inlet pressures up to 100 psi and back pressures to 25 psi. It can be mounted in any direction, and provides a bubble-tight shut off in the event of an air line failure. Due to its compact size, this diaphragm valve is well suited for limited space installations. The Teflon diaphragm and high-purity, non-pigmented plastic body combine to provide a non-leaching, contamination-free shutoff valve. Popular applications include deionized water, high purity chemicals, and clean-in-place systems.
