Hydraulic and descale valves are the type of equipment that you tend to only think about when there’s a reason. And, those reasons usually relate to problems such as leaks, malfunctions, system downtime, etc. When addressing these issues, do you look for quick, band-aid-type fixes or long-term solutions?
When it comes to system designs for steel/aluminum plants or nuclear and hydro power generating plants, you’ll need to incorporate hydraulic or specialty cylinders to move loads or to enable movement in specific applications.
While there are standard cylinders available, some applications require special designs due to the nature of the environment or the work it’s required to do. Hunt Valve designs and...

In an environment as harsh and rugged as a rolling steel mill, your descale valve is going to need repairs at some point, especially if you haven’t replaced or upgraded your valve in several years. And, with many steel plants using a run-to-failure strategy, chances are simple repairs won’t be enough. You’ll need to remanufacture your valves.
If you’ve been in the descaling industry for a long time, you’ve likely encountered your share of valve leaks. Leakage in descale valves can quickly turn into an entire system nightmare. We’ve got a guide that explains how to prevent leakage by selecting the right valve. But what if you have a leak in your current valve? How can you identify a leak and how do you handle it?
Maintenance costs are a drain, but necessary to keep your system up and running in good working order. Regularly scheduled on-site maintenance is a convenient way to keep your valves working at their best. Knowing that, what should you look for in on-site maintenance services?
There is a trend in the industry to transition to electro-mechanical actuators from pneumatic actuators. Even before Hunt Valve’s newly acquired Actuator Division, we began implementing electro-mechanical linear actuators to our latest descale valves, the Proportional Poppet Valve and the Mega-Flo C plunger-style valve.
When it comes to descale valves, one of the biggest questions is which type to use: poppet or plunger. While either can be used in most systems, there are situations to choose one over the other. We’ll examine what considerations to keep in mind when choosing, when to use each, and the advantages and disadvantages of each.
Hunt Valve is leading the way in innovation in the descale valve industry. It’s newest products, namely the Ceramic Proportional Poppet Valve and the Mega-Flo C Plunger Valve, feature advanced ceramic materials in key components of these valves. The ceramic technology makes these the longest lasting descale valves by a long shot over any other valves (up to five times longer for the poppet valve and up to three...
