Diaphragm valves, manually or pneumatically operated, are used in hygienic and aseptic processes in the food-processing and pharmaceutical industries. The valves are widely used in loops of purified water (PW) or water for injections (WFI). Models suitable for CIP/SIP processes and according to EHEDG, FDA and USP 6 are available.
The Pharmavalve is a radial diaphragm valve and combines the features of traditional piston valves (manually or automatically) with the aseptic safety of common diaphragm valves. It is designed for critical processes where any contamination, dead leg zones or leakage are to be avoided.
