Diaphragm valves are ideal for shutting off and controlling chemically aggressive, viscous or solidified media.
Since diaphragm valves are free of dead space per se, they are very often used in the food and pharmaceutical industries. Especially in these industries is imperative to ensure that the conveyed does not settle in the dead spaces of the fitting, where it ages and possibly contaminated the fresh material. The diaphragm valves are available in many different housing, membrane and lining materials. Thus, the fitting can be perfectly matched to your system and your medium. In particular, the large number of available drive variants makes the membrane valve of the VM series extremely versatile.
