Asahi valves now manufactured in US
Asahi, a provider of fluid handling system solutions and specialist in thermoplastic fluid flow technologies, is now manufacturing diaphragm valves in the United States.
The company's Asahi Type-14 diaphragm valves are available in sizes 1/2" through 2" with one-piece moulded bodies of PVC, CPVC, PP or PVDF. Available diaphragm materials include EPDM, FKM or three-layer EPDM/PVDF/PTFE.
Three different stems and two sleeves are needed to complete the 1/2" through 2" range of valve assemblies, both of which Asahi manufactures.
Each valve features visual position indication, weir design for optimum throttling capabilities, and built-in travel stop to prevent over-tightening and eliminate compressive strain. The valve's body and bonnet are made of solid thermoplastic materials for corrosion resistance.
