Alfa Laval Unique DV-ST UltraPure Diaphragm Valves
The Alfa Laval Unique Diaphragm Valve UltraPure meets the requirements of most sterile and ultra-hygienic processes. With a fully modular design and enhanced compatibility, Alfa Laval’s DV-ST UltraPure diaphragm valves offer solutions for all hygienic industries. Their customizability allows you to create a complete valve system to meet virtually any demand in the pharmaceutical and biotech industry.
The Alfa Laval Unique DV-ST UltraPure Diaphragm Valve has two modes of operation: manual operation by means of a handle and pneumatic operation by means of a pneumatic actuator. For manual operation, a simple turn of the handle lifts the compressor upwards, moving the diaphragm away from the weir of the valve body thereby opening the valve. Turning the handle in the opposite direction pushes the compressor downwards onto the diaphragm, pressing the diaphragm against the weir of the valve body, thereby closing the valve.
For pneumatic operation, the pneumatic actuator controls the axial movement of a piston, thereby opening or closing the valve depending on the actuator function.
Alfa Laval DV-ST UltraPure valve bodies are available in cast, forged, and block options to suit the most demanding applications. A choice of surface finishes and connection types are also available. For critical applications with corrosive media Alfa Laval can offer special alloy options in block design including Hastelloy, duplex, and AL-6XN materials.
