ATO PVC diaphragm valve uses a flexible PTFE diaphragm that separates the valve's body from the flow path. This diaphragm is made of CPVC or UPVC which can withstand corrosive or acidic substances.
Tips: Plunger valve vs. diaphragm valve
Plunger valves and diaphragm valves are both types of control valves used to regulate the flow of fluids in various industrial applications. Plunger valves consist of a cylindrical plunger that moves back and forth to control the flow, whereas diaphragm valves utilize a flexible diaphragm to obstruct or allow fluid passage.
Plunger valves are known for their precise control and low maintenance but can be prone to leakage over time due to wear and tear. Diaphragm valves, on the other hand, offer excellent sealing and are ideal for handling corrosive or abrasive fluids. They are also relatively easy to clean and maintain.
The choice between the two valves depends on specific application requirements. Plunger valves are suitable for fine control and clean fluids, while diaphragm valves excel in situations with challenging fluids or where a tight seal is essential. Proper selection ensures efficient fluid regulation and minimizes maintenance issues.
