Pfa lined pneumatic diaphragm valve
Pneumatic actuator diaphragm valve is a type of flow control device that uses an actuator to manipulate a diaphragm, consequently controlling the flow of fluid through the valve. Diaphragm valves are widely used in industries such as chemical processing, pharmaceuticals, water treatment, and food and beverage. They offer several advantages, including high resistance to corrosion, minimal dead space, and the ability to handle abrasive or viscous fluids.
Structure and Mechanism
The PFA Lined Pneumatic Diaphragm Valve model consists of several essential components:
- Body: The valve body is available in different materials such as WCB, SS316, and SS316L. It houses the diaphragm and the fluid path.
- Diaphragm: Made from EPDM or EPDM+PTFE material, the diaphragm is responsible for separating the fluid from the actuator. This separation ensures that the fluid is isolated and free from contamination.
- Pneumatic Actuator: This component uses compressed air to operate the valve. The actuator can be double acting for bidirectional control or single acting for unidirectional control (either normally closed or normally open).
- Accessories: Solenoid valve, limit switch box, filter, E/P positioner, and handwheel are essential for regulating and monitoring the valve’s performance.
- End Connections: ASME B16.34 class 150, ASME B16.34 class 300, DIN PN16, DIN PN20, JIS 10K, and JIS 20K are available end connections, ensuring compatibility with different pipeline specifications.
The valve operates by receiving a pneumatic signal from the actuator, which causes the diaphragm to move either up or down, thus opening or closing the valve.
System Integration and Types
Pneumatic diaphragm valves can be integrated into various systems to provide precise flow control. The PFA Lined Pneumatic Diaphragm Valve model offers the following control types:
- Double Acting: Uses pneumatic pressure to open and close the valve, providing bidirectional flow control.
- Single Acting Normally Closed: The valve remains closed with no air pressure. It opens when pneumatic pressure is applied.
- Single Acting Normally Open: The valve remains open with no air pressure. It closes when pneumatic pressure is applied.
