Who is IMI PBM?

IMI PBM (Pittsburgh Brass Manufacturing) is a company over 100 years old that began as a non-ferrous foundry in 1899 along the Monongahela River in Pittsburgh, PA. In PBM’s history, the first Flush Bottom Mounted Ball Valve and True Multi-Port Ball Valves were developed and manufactured. Today PBM is one of the leading producers of sanitary and industrial valves. This edition of our product focus will highlight their Radial Diaphragm Tank Valves.

What is a Radial Diaphragm Tank Valve?

RDV’s are a precision-engineered gatekeeper for seamless fluid flow control.

PBM’s radial diaphragm valves are built to comply with ASME BPE-2016 requirements (a pipe inclined at ¼” per foot) and to be cleanable which enhances the safety and effectiveness of critical bioprocess applications.
