“Names, once they are in common use, quickly become mere sounds, their etymology being buried, like so many of the earth’s marvels, beneath the dust of habit.”
~ Salman Rushdie

Back in 2006, we announced the ASEPCO Radial-Diaphragm Inline Valve when there really wasn’t a standard industry term for this type of valve. Unfortunately, our customers referred to all 180° valves in the process lines as “diaphragm valves,” no matter what the valve design, and, as a result, our Inline Valve name never caught on. Recently, the industry has adopted the term “weirless diaphragm valves” for such valves, so we’ve renamed our Inline Valve to be the ASEPCO Radial-Diaphragm™ Weirless Diaphragm Valve.

This valve’s versatility has made it the focal point of many of our customers’ custom valve assemblies.

The design of our Weirless Diaphragm Valve has a number of advantages over standard “diaphragm valves”:

  • It has a contamination-free, self-draining radial-diaphragm design.
  • It is fully drainable at 180° of installation angles.
  • No tools are necessary for assembly or disassembly, because of the reliable industry-standard hygienic clamp.
  • Diaphragm swaps typically take less than one minute.
  • It never needs adjusting or tightening.

Our customers tell us that this valve reduces their maintenance costs by 80 percent over Weir-style valves. Check out why many of our customers are replacing their Weir-based Diaphragm valves with our Weirless Diaphragm valve.
