  1. Do you have any recommendations on cleaning diaphragms?Do you have any recommendations on cleaning diaphragms?
    Asepco does not recommend any specific cleaning cycle for our diaphragms, but they are designed to be cleaned in process (CIP) or out of process (COP) using standard industry cleaning practices.
  2. Why isn't there any labeling on the VT05?Why isn't there any labeling on the VT05?
    There are two reasons VT05 diaphragms are not currently labeled. Under our old labeling system, which consisted of "plugs" with labels as part of the mold, no 0.5-inch diaphragms were labeled, becau...
  3. Are your diaphragms lot controlled?Are your diaphragms lot controlled?
    Yes. Our diaphragms are produced in lots that are fully traceable all the way to the raw material.
  4. What grade is the Viton that you use for diaphragms?What grade is the Viton that you use for diaphragms?
    We currently offer three grades of Viton: Viton A (non steam resistant) Viton A (steam resistant) Viton GF To find out more about these materials please see our Viton page.
  5. Do you offer Teflon diaphragms?Do you offer Teflon diaphragms?
    In 2013 we started producing a PTFE (Teflon) diaphragm for our Tank Valves. PTFE diaphragms are available for 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, and 3.0-inch tank valves. We currently don't have PTFE diaphragms for our...
  6. What tests do you perform on your diaphragms and can you send certificates of the tests?What tests do you perform on your diaphragms and can you send certificates of the tests?
    Currently, we test our diaphragms to ensure they comply with USP VI. If you require a certificate of conformance for USP VI that can be supplied with your on request. If you require other tests, ple...
  7. Are your diaphragms lot controlled?Are your diaphragms lot controlled?
    Our diaphragms are lot controlled. Each diaphragm is marked with the lot number.
  8. Why don't you offer 3-inch Viton diaphragms?Why don't you offer 3-inch Viton diaphragms?
    ...fferent diaphragm mold. Molds are very expensive to create and the lack of demand for 3-inch Viton diaphragms does not support the cost of fabrication at this time. If you would like to order a ...
  9. Why don't you have a Teflon diaphragm?Why don't you have a Teflon diaphragm?
    In 2013 we started producing a PTFE (Teflon) diaphragm for our Tank Valves. PTFE diaphragms are available for 1.0, 1.5, 2.0, and 3.0-inch tank valves. We currently don't have PTFE diaphragms for our...
  10. How thick is the parylene surface of your diaphragms?How thick is the parylene surface of your diaphragms?
    The thickness is .002" (.05mm).
  11. What Diaphragm material is best for steam applications?What Diaphragm material is best for steam applications?
    ... you are doing, as well as other factors in your process. Constant steam exposure is much harder on diaphragms than occasional steam exposure. In addition, chemical exposure along with the steam expo...
  12. What caused my diaphragm to fail?What caused my diaphragm to fail?
    There are many different ways for a diaphragm to fail from mishandling to aging due to chemical incompatibility. The majority of diaphragm failures are related to aging or chemical incompatibil...
  13. What is the recommended temperature range for Asepco diaphragms?What is the recommended temperature range for Asepco diaphragms?
    Our temperature ranges for our diaphragms are: Material Color Temp Range C Temp Range F Silicone white or clear -51 to 135C -60 to 275F ...
  14. What are parylene diaphragms and what are the benefits?What are parylene diaphragms and what are the benefits?
    We currently offer two diaphragms that come with a parylene surface treatment, Silicone Plus and EPDM Plus. Parylene is a material that mechanically bonds itself to the base elastomer. It is not a...
  15. Do I need to have continuous steam on an ASEPCO valve for sterility?Do I need to have continuous steam on an ASEPCO valve for sterility?
    ASEPCO diaphragms are designed for SIP applications but NOT for continuous steam exposure.
  16. What is the pressure/temperature rating of an ASEPCO valve?What is the pressure/temperature rating of an ASEPCO valve?
    All valve bodies are designed to withstand pressures up to 250 PSI and temperatures up to 205° C. Note: Diaphragms can withstand temperatures up to 135° C.
  17. What type of Parylene do you use on your diaphagms?What type of Parylene do you use on your diaphagms?
    We use Type N Parylene on our diaphragms.
  18. What is the difference between a tank valve and a process valve?What is the difference between a tank valve and a process valve?
    Tank valves and Process valves function identically and use the same diaphragms and actuators. Tank valves are welded into tanks permanently. Process valve inlets are hygienic (tri-clamp) clamps and...
  19. Does ASEPCO permanently label their valves and actuators?Does ASEPCO permanently label their valves and actuators?
    Valve bodies are permanently labeled with serial and material heat numbers via pin stamping. Actuators are permanently labeled with serial numbers. 1"-3" Diaphragms are molded with a batch number ...
  20. Is the ASEPCO valve designed for steam applications?Is the ASEPCO valve designed for steam applications?
    ASEPCO diaphragms are designed for SIP applications but NOT for continuous steam exposure (Viton does not fair well under any steam applications).
