Block-and-bleed valves

Overview

ASEPCO Weirless Radial diaphragm™ block-and-bleed valve

A reliable block-and-bleed valve eliminating the usual dead leg between seal points.

Features and benefits

  • Easy to assemble and inspect
  • Eliminates sources of contamination—reducing cleaning time
  • Clean, self-draining design
  • Block body design eliminates dead leg area
  • Patented radial diaphragm, eliminates entrapment for easy cleaning
  • Features a broad install angle with full drainability in multiple orientations
