The new Dialock valve has been launched by Durapipe, and is packed full of features designed to maximise flow rate, improve accuracy and increase operational efficiency. The most unique element of the new valve is the patented locking handwheel, which allows the valve to be adjusted and locked in over 300 positions, more than any other diaphragm valve on the market, offering complete flexibility to the end user.
Due to the optimised design of the valve body, it offers significantly increased flow rates. The Durapipe Dialock valve is the most linear diaphragm valve available, with the new internal geometry allowing a substantial increase in flow coefficient values and a reduction in pressure loss. The opening percentage of the valve can be seen immediately by a high visibility graduated optical positioning indicator.
It is completely corrosion resistant, the operating mechanism is manufactured entirely in glass reinforced polypropylene, eliminating the use of metal parts exposed to the external environment. With three actuation options available, the new valve can also be easily installed into fully automated processes.
