Mucon Iris Diaphragm Valves.

These are used in all bulk materials processing industries because of their high degree of material flow control, and wide range of applications - from heavy duty open discharge, through in-line process systems to light duty  valve operations on portable bins.


The benefits of an Iris Valve are:


  • Non jamming
  • Full bore iris opening (no restriction to product flow)
  • No mechanical wear by abrasive products
  • Sleeves and liners easy and inexpensive to replace
  • Easy valve operation and maintenance
  • Safe, gentle and strong



MUCON offer seven (7) types of valve each in nine (9) sizes and with eleven (11) types of diaphragm so we have virtually every permutation available to offer to you.


Standard valve body parts are manufactured from aluminum, zinc and bronze alloys. Nylon triggers and 316 stainless steel screws all combat corrosion. Sizes 380mm and 450mm have handwheel operation as standard.


Options include

  • 316 stainless steel part or full construction
  • Multi-notching to enhance flow control
  • Coatings available on standard construction
  • Handwheel operation for sizes 150mm to 300mm
  • Can be fitted with position indicating switches


  • Double diaphragm for in-line applications with no leakage to atmosphere
  • Robust construction for medium to heavy duties, handling materials up

to 1600 kg/m³

  • In-situ iris diaphragm adjustment reducing maintenance time
  • Proven design suitable for frequent operation
  • Diaphragms selected to suit application


Dust explosion prevention or protection may be required on systems handling dry powder or granular materials. To operate without proper explosion venting may result in fire or explosion. check local industrial codes and policies or consult SHAPE.
