Asahi/America, Inc., a leading manufacturer in the Thermoplastics industry providing customized solutions for fluid handling systems in a variety of industries, introduces the Type-14 Flanged Diaphragm Valves.
The Type-14 flanged Diaphragm valves feature improved Body to Bonnet sealing performance, visual position indication, Weir design for excellent throttling capabilities and built in travel stop to prevent over-tightening and eliminate compressive strain. Bubble tight sealing can be achieved even in tough applications containing suspended particles or slurrys.
Asahi/America Vice President of Engineering Valves and Actuation, Leo Lester, asserts, "Asahi Type-14 Flanged Diaphragm Valves were developed using the latest Computer Aided Software (CAE Analysis). This allows us to develop a valve that eliminates any possible design problems."
Asahi's Type-14 Diaphragm valves feature a layered EPDM/PTFE diaphragm which can accept the addition of a PVDF gas barrier for aggressive chemicals such as Sodium Hypochlorite which produces an off-gas that can permeate the PTFE layer, unlike laminated PTFE diaphragms which cannot accept a PVDF membrane and actually can become de-lamintated in this highly corrosive environment leading to a potentially hazardous situation. The Type-14 flanged diaphragm valve body is of 1-piece molded construction and is not fabricated. For maximum corrosion resistance, the Type-14 diaphragm Valve's rugged body and bonnet are manufactured of solid thermoplastic materials.
Type-14 Flanged Diaphragm Valves feature a bayonet structure to connect diaphragm and compressor allowing for quick sure exchanges as well as integrally molded bottom stand for simple and firm panel mounting. Asahi's Type-14 Flanged Diaphragm Valves are available in sizes ½" – 4" in a variety of thermoplastic and elastomeric materials.
Asahi/America, Inc. specializes in providing solutions for fluid handling systems, individualized to meet virtually any customer's need. Asahi is a leading manufacturer of high-purity thermoplastic fluid handling products, including valves, actuators, pipe and fittings, controls and flow instrumentation. The company maintains an extensive custom fabrication department, and provides on-site consultation, supervision and training where required.
