This type of valve is often used in various chemical applications, as it can be designed in such way that the media is only in contact with the diaphragm and the valve body lining. The valve opens or closes by means of the elastic diaphragm, which is released or pressed, by a linear motion-controlled saddle against the valve body lining (lining is not always present depending on type of valve and application).
