Unique DV-ST UltraPure
Alfa Laval Unique DV-ST UltraPure diaphragm valves are the natural choice for pharma and biotech industries (as well as other hygiene-focused processes). The compact and lightweight valves comprise a series of base parts including valve bodies, diaphragms, actuators and handles. The choice gives you a multitude of configurations to meet the exact needs of your process. All diaphragms used meet FDA/USP classifications as well as TSE/ADI.
Unique DV-ST UltraPure valve technology
Valve bodies have low delta-ferrite content and defined sulphur content as standard in all forged and block valves. Two-way valves, including the ferrules for clamp-end bodies, are made from a single piece of metal. T- and tank-outlet valves are available machined from block in a multitude of configurations and materials.
The aseptic diaphragm valves are built around a weir-type design and is available with hard or soft compounds from PTFE with EPDM as backing to a pure EPDM diaphragm. They can be operated manually or with pneumatic actuators that come with a range of sensing and control equipment, including control units, position indicators, stroke limiters and valve positioners.
Service and reliability
The valves come with Alfa Laval Q-doc, a comprehensive documentation package that provides full transparency of the entire supply chain. This helps smooth purchasing and installation procedures and facilitates qualification, validation and change control procedures. Based on GDP, Q-doc covers every aspect of biotech and pharmaceutical equipment supply and provides customers with transparent and well-documented quality assurance of the sourced equipment.
Manual operation A simple turn of the handle will push the compressor downwards on the diaphragm, pressing the diaphragm against the weir of the valve body thereby closing the valve Automatic operation The actuator controls the axial movement of a piston, thereby opening or closing the valve depending on the actuator function.
The valve bodies are available in a wide variety of valve types and configuration options (dimension standards, connections, surface finish and material).

"I received the cart yesterday, thanks for the fast delivery! It feels sturdy. I sat on it. It does not bounce. It is also easy to clean and wipe or wash down."
Vice President, Analytical Development and Manufacturing
"Thanks again for reacting so quickly and meeting me halfway with the element. We will be able to get installed and have things keep moving overnight with the night crew. The little things like this are always greatly appreciated when working with Liquidyne."
“This pump cut our processing time from 3 days to 1 shift. I’m not giving this pump back. You will have to come and get it if you want it... and that won’t likely happen.”
