Watson-Marlow Fluid Technology Group (WMFTG) announces an important innovation has been made to ASEPCO Weirless Radial Diaphragm™ in-line-valves; a new lightweight actuator combining a plastic body with stainless steel diaphragm interface designed specifically for the biotechnology and pharmaceutical market.
The new ASEPCO AKS actuator is reliable, durable, GMP compliant and requires fewer brackets or ancillaries for installation. With a hygienic design, the new actuators have laser-etched serial numbers for full traceability, are easy to operate and maintain, and carry a market-leading three year warranty.
ASEPCO Weirless Radial Diaphragm™ valves deliver consistency, while reducing maintenance time by up to 80%. Their unique construction, simple Tri-Clamp assembly and Weirless Radial diaphragm design makes them completely drainable and virtually eliminates the risk of contamination.
Our full range of in-line and tank valves are designed to provide reduced cost of ownership. Changing a diaphragm only takes seconds, making your valves simple to inspect, clean and use.
