How Does the Diaphragm Valve Work?
A diaphragm valve is used for open, close and throttling applications. The diaphragm is a flexible mold that is connected to the stem of the valve by the compressor. To actuate the flow, the compressor is raised by the valve stem. To stop or slow flow, the compressor is lowered and the diaphragm is pressed against the bottom of the valve. Diaphragm valves are excellent for controlling the flow of fluids containing suspended solids. They’re also convenient because they can be installed in any position. As the diaphragm is pulled away from the bottom of the valve body, the fluid has a streamlined path without resistance. With this functionality, the valve has superb fluid control and on/off flow control characteristics. Diaphragm valves can be operated by several different types of actuators: manual, pneumatic, hydraulic, and electric.
Think of diaphragm valves like pinch valves, but one that uses an elastomeric diaphragm, rather than a liner in the valve body. Diaphragm valves have extensive uses for throttling and controlling the flow of liquids, slurries, and gases. Where most other valves would be easily corroded, the diaphragm can withstand severe conditions.
Diaphragm valves have industrial, sterile, and hygienic uses. Many fluids that would clog with other valves’ can glide through smoothly with a diaphragm valve. Diaphragm valves are specially designed for the handling of corrosive fluids, thick slurries, radioactive fluids, or other fluids that must remain free from contamination. Because the valve’s sealing system avoids contamination, it’s ideal or sterile and hygienic applications. Diaphragm valves are commonly used in processing plants, landfills, bleach plants, water treatments, slurry lines, and many more environments.
