This valve is a pressure-operated, in-line axial valve. A tube diaphragm actuates the valve, which is comprised of three major components: 1) Tube, 2) Barrier, 3) Body
There is only one moving part in the valve: The tube diaphragm. There are no shafts, packing, stem guides or springs.
The tube diaphragm is a one piece, homogeneous nitrile rubber part which is extremely durable. The ends of the tube are thick solid rubber, designed to fit between mating flanges. This design eliminates the possibility of cutting the tube diaphragm due to over tightening or piping misalignment during installation.
The tube forms a drip tight seal around the barrier when the pressure is equalized between the valve inlet and the control chamber. When pressures removed from the control chamber, the valve is open. The minimum recommended operating pressure is 40 P.S.I. of inlet pressure.
