Diaphragm life time increased significantly
Diaphragm valves are the most commonly used valves in sterile processes or pharmaceutical applications within the pharmaceutical, food and biotechnology industry. Strict validation processes, manufacturer's guidelines and hygiene regulations must be adhered to, especially in the pharmaceutical sector. Reliable performance of the separating diaphragm is key to ensuring this goal is achieved. Bürkert Fluid Control Systems has therefore optimised the diaphragm contact surfaces in the valve seat and at the so-called pressure piece of its diaphragm valves.
