The externally controlled diaphragm valve Type 2103 consists of a pneumatically operated piston actuator, a diaphragm and a 2-way valve body. The proven and robust actuator with stainless steel housing ensures use in hygienic or aggressive ambient conditions. The flow-efficient valve bodies with little dead space enable high flow rates and a wide range of possible uses. The valve body and the diaphragm are available in all common materials and variants. The actuator has a compact, autoclavable design with a large stainless steel housing and gap-free seals. The integration of automation units Type ELEMENT is possible in all configuration levels (can be retrofitted); a fieldbus interface can also be integrated. An explosion-proof ATEX / IECEx device variant is available. It is a compact, smooth-surfaced and highly integrated system consisting of a valve and an automation unit with integrated pilot air ducts (no intake of ambient air). The add-on body is optionally available in plastic or stainless steel (can be rotated 360°). The valve offers the degrees of protection IP65/67 and NEMA Type 4X and displays high chemical resistance.
