For superior performance on applications where protection against product
contamination is paramount, the diaphragm valve is the answer. Known for its cleanability
and reliability, the diaphragm valve has become the most specified and utilized valve in
pharmaceutical processing. With virtually limitless options including custom body
modifications, the diaphragm valve can be configured for virtually any sanitary or
industrial requirement in manual or automated mode.
Throttling valves with a wide selection of tapered stems are available matched to
manual and automatic actuators to provide an outstanding degree of product and process
control. Valves are available in 316LSS product contact including a vast array of
finishes, end connections, and assembly configurations.
Control is essential in any process flow application. But some applications require a
higher degree of control. For instance, it may be necessary to measure and precisely
control flow, temperature or pressure to ensure correct formulations, as well as the
quality of the final product.
Valve positioners help achieve this control. They provide a stabilizing action in a
valve's pneumatic circuit. Plus, they are engineered to maintain a predetermined valve
position, regardless of other forces acting on the valve to change that position.
Valve positioners can be used in conjunction with control or throttling valves to achieve
more exacting control of process parameters. That makes them very useful in applications
calling for precision metering or blending.
Valve positioners are also helpful in situations subject to "over control," such
as manual control applications or precision filling applications. Applications subject to
wide pressure variations, or requiring more control when flow rates are low, can also
Designed for Easy Application
Positioners are precision instruments, and work on air signals from 3 psi (.211 kg/cm
square) to 15 psi (1.055 kg/cm square). Calibrated range springs are supplied to match the
valve stroke. The positioner is integrally mounted on top of the valve actuator. Both top-
and bottom-loading positioners are available for normally open and normally closed valves.
Divert and Mixing Valves
Sanitary Divert Valves are available in body configurations and can be manifolded to
meet blending, mixing, CIP and virtually any process requirement. Flexible multi-port body
design and high performance are the trademark of these valves including finish,
connection, gasket and style options. In addition, control packages are available to
enhance operation and provide unparalleled flexibility. Mix proof valve systems are also
available engineered to meet most applications.
Corrosion-and contaminant-resistant Ball Valves have earned an enviable reputation for
rugged dependability. They provide leak-proof operation, and they're easy to install and
An optional encapsulated seat reduces the threat of product entrapment on critical process
Full flow Ball Valves are ideal for processing applications where contaminant- or
corrosion- resistant service is essential, and where maximum efficiency is a must, based
on minimum turbulence and pressure drop.
Quick acting. Quarter-turn operation gives visual indication of flow with stop lug.
Electric or pneumatic actuators are available as well as most end connections, including
tank outlet models.
Butterfly Valves for economical process application can be selected from various body
and seat materials with most end connections, finishes and activation. Rugged yet
inexpensive these valves provide years of quality service. Compact butterfly valves are
often used in non-critical applications with difficult dimensional concerns.
Tank & Kettle Valves
Tank and kettle valves are engineered to accommodate a wide variety of vertical- and
horizontal-mounted applications. Flush mounting helps eliminate dead space and minimize
product retention. All valves are furnished with specialty mounts as well as all necessary
Valves can incorporate the switch and control options for automatic operation and
compatibility with a variety of PLCs and other control devices.
A 45º or 90º sweep elbow outlet can provide reduced pressure drop typically encountered
in high-viscosity products.
Disk & Plug & Check Valves
The superb simplicity of disc meeting shaft at 45º means the seat is unpierced, for
the purest of product integrity. The 180º rotation angles the disc cleanly through the
product flow so the valve opens without resistance and stays in place. Half a turn of the
valve handle provides quick, positive, leak-free shutoff. Actuators are also available.
To insure a wide variety of applications, diverse gasket materials are offered. The seat
is available in teflon, buna, silicone, EPDM and viton. The standard "O" rings
are buna or viton. Other elastomers, EPDM and silicone, are also available.
Plug valves, because of their inherent design,
are recommended only for low pressure applications 25 psi maximum, for use with
non-hazardous products; and at temperatures no higher than 100º F. They are subject to
leakage almost from the initial time of installation, because of normal operating,
maintenance and cleaning (clean-out-of-place) procedures.
Spring and ball check valves to match any
system configuration are available with features and options compatible with other system
Pressure Reducing & Relief Valves
Self contained pressure regulating and relief valves are available for liquid or
gaseous applications with ends, finishes, materials, accessories/options to adapt to most
