Quality and Reliability for Your Piping Systems - UPVC Diaphragm Valves by Kwerk GmbH

PVC-U ball valves and hand diaphragm valves are two different types of valves used in pipeline systems. Below you will find a detailed description of the differences between UPVC ball valves and hand diaphragm valves to help you choose the right valve for your requirements.

UPVC ball valves are valves that regulate the flow in the pipeline through a rotating ball. They are made from unplasticized polyvinyl chloride (UPVC), a robust and chemically resistant material. UPVC ball valves offer easy operation as they can be opened or closed by a 90-degree rotation of the handle. They allow for precise flow control by adjusting the position of the ball accordingly. This type of valve is particularly sought after in applications where quick and accurate flow control is required. UPVC ball valves find applications in various industries such as water supply, chemical industry, and irrigation systems.

On the other hand, hand diaphragm valves operate with a flexible diaphragm that is opened or closed by pressure or tension. This type of valve provides reliable sealing due to the tight fit of the diaphragm on the valve seat. Hand diaphragm valves are suitable for applications where a secure seal against aggressive media or high-pressure load is required. They are commonly used in the chemical industry, food processing, and other areas where stringent sealing requirements are imposed.

In terms of flow control, UPVC ball valves offer more precise control as the position of the ball can adjust the flow. Hand diaphragm valves, on the other hand, are designed more for full opening or closing operations and offer fewer options for flow regulation.
