The valve body offers low delta-ferrite content and specified sulphur content as standard. Several valves are available in both block and forged versions. The latter provides a lightweight solution that is quick to heat up during heat sterilization.

The Unique Diaphragm Valve UltraPure can be operated manually using a handle or automatically using a pneumatic actuator. Lightweight and compact, the actuator can be fitted with an extensive range of control and indication equipment.
