When designing high-pressure hydraulic systems, planning ahead for long-term operation in harsh environments is vital. This is especially important when it comes to managing water valve leakage. During the design phase, the plant engineer should review the leakage tolerance classifications for each type of water valve under consideration and investigate potential incompatibilities with certain flow velocities and materials of construction.
To help plant and maintenance engineers make better choices during high-pressure hydraulic system design and planning, Hunt Valve has published a free resource for minimizing water valve leakage. Download the High-Pressure Water Valve Leakage infographic to explore three important areas of high-pressure water valve leakage management:
1. Understand internal and external leakage: Explore the defining characteristics and long-term effects of both internal and external leakage. 2. Study leakage tolerance industry standards: Review industry standards created by the Manufacturers Standard Society (MSS) and the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for various types of valves. 3. Select the ideal hydraulic valve: Discover how to size and select the proper valve while avoiding potential incompatibilities and damage from destructive additives in the flow media.
This infographic is designed to help plant and maintenance engineers increase efficiency, decrease costs and protect workers at any industrial facility.
