MA 80 - PTFE backed EPDM - 2-piece SED Diaphragm



The diaphragm is the most important component of the diaphragm valve. Besides the valve body, the diaphragm is the only part which contacts the process medium. It is the dynamic part with which the flow rate of the process medium is controlled and/or stopped.

PTFE diaphragms offer the highest degree of chemical resistance, increased stability, longer flex life, less porosity, reduced cold flow, and superior performance through temperature fluctuations between hot and cold and steam sterilization cycles.

The PTFE MA 80 two-piece diaphragm consists of a seperate EPDM backing cushion and a PTFE diaphragm. It is always molded in de closed position. This gives less tension on the diaphragm when the valve is closed, and reduces the force to close the valve which increases the life of the diaphragm.

The threaded stud is connection is embedded in the PTFE of the diaphragm. To eliminate the potential of point loading at the center of the diaphragm, a floating suspension connection to the valve operating mechanism is utilized.

MA 80 is suitable for SED Diaphragm Valves: Steripur 997, Steripur 407, KMA 995, KMA 495, KMD 985, KMD 385
