In the previous posts about the valves used in BioProcess Engineering, the important features of the valves to be used was detailed. The valve satisfying almost all the requirements is the DIAPHRAGM Valve. It is clearly stated in ASME BPE 2002 that the Diaphragm valve is to be used in the product contact areas.
