The Saunders® Industrial Diaphragm Valve, first developed more than seventy years ago, has evolved to handle more fluids, gases, solids, and powder than any other type of valve. A wide choice of materials are available and a flexible range of operating methods have been developed to satisfy the needs of most industrial applications.
Extended life, reliability, safety and ease of use, combined with an essentially simple design, facilitate low maintenance and minimal running costs. When subjected to both pressure and vacuum, Saunders® diaphragm valves operate and close 100% leaktight. This feature reduces processing and handling costs by cutting out the waste normally associated with conventional valve designs.
Saunders offers a full range of diaphragm selections engineered to meet the exacting demands of our industrial customers. All grades of rubber and PTFE have been developed to suit individual customer requirements and are proven, even in the most arduous environments.
All Saunders diaphragms are made from high quality materials and are manufactured in-house to strict quality standards. This is borne out by the fact that all diaphragms are fully traceable in accordance with EN10204 3.1. This gives our customers the assurance of consistent, reliable and repeatable quality resulting in consistent, reliable and repeatable process performance.
