DiaFlo Straightway Diaphragm Valve provides the following benefits: 

• Slurry Applications: Due to the streamlined fluid passage, the Dia-Flo Straightway Valve can handle slurries, without solid particles becoming entrapped in cavities or crevices which may obstruct the operation of other valve types. In addition, the unobstructed flow path allows the valve to be rodded through. • Abrasion Resistant: Available in five rubber linings: Soft Rubber, Hard Rubber, Neoprene®, Hypalon®, and Butyl, the Straightway Valve is well suited to handling corrosive and abrasive services. • Corrosive Resistant: In addition to the rubber linings, Tefzel® ETFE, polypropylene, and glass linings are available to handle the most corrosive services. To protect the valve exterior, PVDF and white epoxy coatings are available. • Conventional Straightway Design: The Dia-Flo Straightway Valve is a conventional design as opposed to a reduced port straightway design. A reduced port straightway design is similar to a pre-pinched pinch valve, in that the flow path cross-sectional area is generally reduced. The reduction in area results in reduced flow capacity (Cv), increased velocity, increased pressure drop, and accelerated wear through the valve. • Bonnet Isolation: Similar to the weir valve, the working parts of the bonnet are completely isolated from the process media. Thus, in slurry or corrosive applications, the media can not adversely affect the operation of the valve internals, by either clogging or corroding them. • Bubble-Tight Shut-Off: 100% seat and shell testing is performed on every assembly to verify bubble-tight shut-off. Testing is performed in accordance with MSS SP-88 (Manufacturers Standardization Society of the Valve and Fittings Industry, Inc., Standard Practice – Diaphragm Valves). • Valve Options: Adjustable travel stop, sealed bonnet, alternate materials, alternate coatings and chain wheel operated are options that can be specified with a manual valve. For valve automation refer to pages 8 and 9. • Sizes: Rubber-lined bodies are available in sizes 1″–12″. Metal flanged end bodies are available in 1/2″–12″.

The Dualrange Control Valve combines the standard features of the weir diaphragm valve with increased rangeability. Utilizing a unique two-piece compressor design, the Dualrange Control Valve has greater rangeability and controllability than typical diaphragm valves. Notable applications and benefits are as follows: 

Features and Benefits

• Control: The unique bonnet design encompasses two nested compressors as opposed to one utilized in conventional diaphragm valves. The individual movement of each compressor allows an increase in rangeability over conventional diaphragm valves. When an increase in flow is desired, the inner compressor moves completely upward, followed by the outer compressor. This dual movement allows greater variance in the flow path cross-sectional area, which directly corresponds to greater variances inflow. Hence increased controllability is achieved. • Cleanability: The streamlined flow path allows the control of high purity services while still maintaining stringent cleanliness requirements. • Slurries and Abrasives: Given the relative absence of cavities and crevices, the Dualrange Control Valve is ideal for controlling slurries up to 15% in solid concentration. • Positioners: The ITT Conoflow and Moore Products positioners are available as standard with the Dualrange Control Valve. Other positioners are available upon request. • Maintenance: The Dualrange utilizes standard Dia-Flo actuators and weir diaphragms. Therefore, part interchangeability and maintenance are standardized. Typically, only periodic lubrication and diaphragm and o-ring replacement are required. • Control Valve Sizing: To optimize the desired control within your system parameters, please contact us to perform sizing calculations and offer valve recommendations. • Sizes: The Dual range is available with all weir style bodies and diaphragms in sizes 1″ – 6″. Contact us for product details and an offer by submitting an RFQ form.

Dia Flo Diaphragms – The diaphragm material and design are integral to the successful performance of the diaphragm valve. For that reason, 12 weir elastomer diaphragms, two weirs PTFE diaphragms, and six elastomer straightway diaphragms are available to handle a multitude of process fluids and parameters. Our elastomer diaphragms are available in a variety of materials to address various process characteristics. Some elastomer diaphragms are softer and better suited to abrasive and slurry applications. Others are harder, providing greater chemical resistivity and higher temperature limitations. All elastomer diaphragms in sizes 1″ – 8″ are molded in the closed position to provide the most effective seal. Each diaphragm contains markings identifying the size, material, mold date, and valve supplier. To ensure the best possible diaphragm, ITT Engineered Valves maintains a continuing development program to utilize new materials and improve existing compounds. The result of this effort is the recent introduction of the PTFE grade TM diaphragm. 

• Proven benefits of the PTFE grade TM diaphragm versus conventional PTFE diaphragms are: — Reduced permeation due to a more homogeneous microstructure with minimal voids — Reduced cold flow similar to 25% carbon-reinforced PTFE — Increased cycle life due to a more amorphous compound • The molded closed design increases the sealing properties of the diaphragm. The relaxed position of the diaphragm is contoured to the same shape as the weir which increases the ability of the diaphragm to provide a bubble-tight shut-off. • The 2-piece design includes an EPDM elastomer backing cushion and a PTFE diaphragm. This design eliminates the common problems inherent to laminated PTFE diaphragms, such as delamination, permeation, and cracking. • The floating tube nut design shown on this page prevents point loading of the PTFE diaphragms which can cause downstream leakage and premature diaphragm failure. The downward force of the stem is transferred to the compressor bypassing the tube nut. Thus, the forces are evenly distributed over the seating area of the PTFE diaphragm reducing cold flow and stud pull-out problems. This same design is used on elastomer diaphragms 6″ and larger. ITT Grinnell Replacement Diaphragms include material options diaphragm, types A Soft Natural Rubber (FDA), SA Soft Natural Rubber (FDA) straightway, B Black Butyl (FDA), SB Black Butyl (FDA) straightway, C Hypalon, E1 EPDM (FDA), M EPDM, SM EPDM straightway, P BUNA N (FDA), S Natural Rubber, SS Natural Rubber straightway, T Neoprene, ST Neoprene straightway, WB White Butyl (FDA), DP BUNA N Direct Loaded (FDA), V Viton, R2 PTFE (FDA), and TM PTFE (FDA) in sizes 1/2″ thru 12”.
