Hygienic Valves List
All of these efforts by hygienic valve manufacturers are intended to increase the purity and sterility of the final product. Like other types of valves, hygienic valves may be produced in many configurations and from a variety of materials that include metals and plastics. More specifically, stainless steel, PVC, CPVC, cast iron and brass are all common elements used to make diaphragm valves.
Whether there is a bend in the piping or not, hygenic valves, like all other diaphragm valves are shaped like a cylinder, with two openings, and has the common elements of the stretchy diaphragm, the actuation device and a stem, which is what pressures the diaphragm into effectively blocking materials from passing through the valve.
