1/2'' Sanitary Manual Diaphragm Valves AV-4M AISI-316L

1/2'' Sanitary Manual Diaphragm Valves AV-4M AISI-316L


AV-4M series is a manual type sanitary diaphragm valve, which is widely used in food, beverage, dairy, brewing, pharmaceutical industries, etc. It is excellent for flow control as well as for open/close duties.


Materials: AISI-316L
Size: 1/2''
Diaphragm: EPDM + PTFE

The seal materials comply with FDA177.2600 standard. Using proprietary technology, the diaphragm uses a combination of EPDM and PTFE, which is secured using SS bolts. The sealing part where contact with the medium is of PTFE material, it has good cold resistance -13°F (-25°C), excellent heat-resistance 482°F (+250°C), tolerance to most chemicals, and excellent abrasion resistance to medium flow.

End connections: butt-welded, sanitary clamp, T-type, U-type or others upon request.

Pneumatic control

Normally Closed (NC) - Air to open and spring to close;
Normally Open (NO) - Air to close and spring to open;
Air to Air (AA) - Air to open, air to close.

Optimal Installation Angle

Due to the structure feature, 15° ~ 30° is the optimal angle for installation,which makes complete drainage after cleaning and keeps no residue.
