Versatile Plastic Diaphragm Check Valves Increase Options in Medical Designs

Figure 1
Plastic diaphragm check valves are two-port valves, meaning they have two openings -- one for upstream fluid or gas to enter, and the other for the media to exit downstream.

I am particularly impressed by one aspect of their versatility; the fact the spatial orientation does not affect their operation. The fact that they can be installed vertically and yet still do not allow anything to flow through them under the influence of gravity definitely increases their reliability in sensitive medical design.
