At our facility in Irvine, CA iPolymer develops and produces a wide-array of high-purity, pneumatically actuated fluid handling valves. We offer various polypropylene valves and other valve options to fulfill your industrial requirements, whether that involves stopping or releasing fluid flow, maintaining single fluid direction, or dividing the flow of a fluid.
WE offer three major pneumatic valve classifications:
General Purposes DI Water and Mild Chemistry Valves
These valves include our drain valves, H20 valves, DI water valves, general water valves, and multi-purpose valves. The major parts of these valves are made from polypropylene, PVC, or PVDF. Our Polypropylene valves are competitively priced, durable, and suitable for a wide-range of applications. Even though these valves work efficiently in most environments, they are susceptible to deterioration when subjected to hydrocarbons and deteriorate fast when subjected to UV light. It is important to consider these factors when evaluating the prospect of using polypropylene valves for any particular application.
Dilution drain valves, quick dump valves, and diverter valves are all categorized as specialty valves. These valves are primarily made from polypropylene, PVDF, or PVC.
Per the majority of pneumatic devices, compressed dry air is the primary actuation source. The air supply should be chemically or mechanically dried in order to deter the build-up of moisture inside a pneumatic actuator. The user should go over the literature specific to the product to obtain the actuation pressure range which is different between products.
High Purity Valves (all-wetted-surfaces 100% PTFE)
These high purity valves consist of our inline diaphragm valves, Teflon pneumatic valves, miniature pneumatic diaphragm valves, and chemical resistant valves. Polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) is ideally suited to clean room, harsh chemical, and deionized water applications. They are manufactured to carry exceptionally caustic and harsh chemistries in addition to ultra-pure media. The body of these valves along with their internal parts that are exposed to fluid media are made from PTFE.
