Asahi/America, Inc., a company in thermoplastic fluid flow technologies, is now manufacturing its true union and flanged Type-14 diaphragm valves in the United States.  Assembly, pressure testing and final packaging all take place in Asahi’s Malden, Mass. headquarters.

Asahi Type-14 diaphragm valves being made in the US are available in sizes 1/2" through 2” with one-piece molded bodies of PVC, CPVC, PP or PVDF. Available diaphragm materials include EPDM, FKM or three-layer EPDM/PVDF/PTFE.

In addition to assembly, Asahi also machines two integral parts of their Type-14 diaphragm valves in-house: the valve stem and sleeve. Three different stems and two sleeves are needed to complete the 1/2” through 2” range of valve assemblies.

Asahi's Type-14 diaphragm valve features visual position indication, weir design for excellent throttling capabilities, and built-in travel stop to prevent over-tightening and eliminate compressive strain. For maximum corrosion resistance, the Type-14 diaphragm valve's rugged body and bonnet are manufactured of solid thermoplastic materials. Asahi Type-14 diaphragm valves can be electrically or pneumatically actuated.
