Saunders® IDV Saving Cost & Delivering Environmental Benefits

Saunders® Industrial Diaphragm Valves (IDV)

Saunders® Industrial Diaphragm Valves (IDV) plastic-lined valves coated in a new corrosion-resistant powder are saving cost and delivering environmental benefits

The Saunders® Industrial Diaphragm Valve range encompasses a complete line of manual and linear actuated diaphragm valves, both weir and straight through styles, each of which plays a vital role in various flow control applications.

Recently, Saunders® announced a product enhancement that offers cost savings to the operator and environmental benefits.

As of this year, all Saunders® plastic-lined valves will now be coated in a new corrosion-resistant powder. This paint upgrade offers excellent resistance to corrosion, chemicals and weather, as well as most acids, alkalis and oils.

The powder coating is electrostatically sprayed onto the degreased, clean metal component, which is then held at approximately 200°C for ten minutes to produce a high bake.

The result will be a more durable, high quality finish that resists chipping and scratching. This clean process results in negligible waste, low-level emission and contains no solvents, making it a smart choice for the environment, as well.
