UHP Cylinder Valves



The D389 series is a pneumatically operated, tied diaphragm double seal type cylinder valve for high flow UHP corrosive gases.

This cylinder valve is primarily designed for UHP, corrosive, reactive and toxic gases and is responsible for keeping the highest level of purity of the gas. The seat closure force is increased thanks to its oleo-pneumatic actuator. The tight diaphragm technology allows no particle are generation in the gas wetted parts.

Rotarex Puretec manufactures and provides ultra high purity cylinder valves for technical & inert gases, reactive gases, corrosive gases and toxic gases. The Puretec division carries out production in their ISO4 certified cleanroom with 100% helium leak testing on all of the products. Each valve undergoes strict quality control procedures including more than 14 visual, tactile or microscope controls on each valve, microscope toroid controls before and after the valve mounting, and internal/external tightness tests registered into the traceability system.

Key Features:

  • Tied diaphragm design with minimal gas wetted volume.
  • Combined soft and metal seat design with low permeation rate.
  • Patented operation mechanism.
  • Threaded weep hole for pipe away connection.
  • Strong closing force with the use of a hydraulic amplifier.
  • Possibility to connect to a leak detector.

Valve Specifications:

  • Gas Types: Pure and Ultra-Pure.
  • Connections: all standards and customer specific requirements on request.
  • Working Pressure: 200 BAR.
  • Nominal Flow Rate: CV = 0.5.
  • Temperature Range: -40°C to +65°C.
  • Body Materials: Stainless Steel 1.4435 (AISI 316L) and Hastelloy 2.4602 (UNS N 06022).
  • Leak Rate: 1.10-8 mBAR L/sec.
  • Seat Orifice Size: 6mm.
  • Marking: π0029 (according to TPED), manufacture date, 3 stars, connections and valve part number.
  • Options: Accessories such as mechanical and electronic position indicators are available on request.

Tied diaphragm seal valve technology is often favoured by electronics manufacturers and chemical applications. Some of the unique advantages to this technology include:

  • Reduced dead spaces and gas wetted volumes allow easy purging process.
  • Freedom of internal threads and springs insures minimum particles generation.
  • Very low internal volume with minimum dead spaces. Particularly beneficial for hygroscopic, corrosive, pyrophoric or high purity gases where inert gas purging is necessary before opening or after closing the valve.
  • Freedom from seizure when used with corrosive gases. Gas does not come into contact with the valve operating mechanism.
  • Positive and effective operation, valve lower spindle is mechanically linked to the upper spindle and operating handwheel.
  • Backed up welded diaphragms provide a permanent and durable gas tight seal.
