This specialty valve has an isolation diaphragm that exists across the top of the internal valve chamber. It hermetically seals the flow path. The ability to seal this flow path means that it then provides a sterile flow path. In applications where contamination of the media can simply not happen (chemicals, gases, liquids), the LVM is an ideal solution.
The SMC Quick Reference Guide makes the LVM easy to order.
Orifice diameters, pressure rating, voltage, materials, and dead volume can be found quickly.
