Hunt Valve Provides Reliable Remanufacturing of Legacy Descale Valves
Hunt Valve, a fluid power engineering company specializing in severe-duty valves and components, now offers reliable remanufacturing services on the company’s plunger-style descale valve designs that need repair or reconditioning. Hunt Valve’s remanufacturing technology helps plant and maintenance engineers extend the value and useful life of their legacy descale valves.
“When your severe-service descale valve needs to be repaired or reconditioned, the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) is in the best position to remanufacture the valve to ensure continuous, reliable performance,” explained Brad Sterner, Hunt Valve’s president and CEO. “We remanufacture your valve and upgrade it to the latest design version with the newest technology, further improving its durability and maximizing its useful life. Before performing any service, we analyze how the constraints of your component and system may impact the long-term performance of the valve and make any needed adjustments, which may include adding stainless steel cladding or specialty ceramic coatings.”
In addition to full factory remanufacturing services, Hunt Valve offers on-site valve inspection and basic rebuilding to replace seals or any other worn components. When performed on an annual basis, the on-site service contract is far less costly than a run-to-failure strategy that requires removing the valve for factory rebuilding. This service includes full inspection reports so plant and maintenance engineers can monitor the valve’s condition and remaining service life to predict when removal for factory rebuilding or full valve replacement is required.
At the time of valve replacement, Hunt Valve offers additional cost-saving options to its industrial and military customers, including a new:
- Plunger-style descale valve: With a unique sliding plunger design, the Mega-Flo B Descale Valve has become the most versatile and easy-to-maintain valve on the market. This fast-acting, smooth-shifting valve consistently provides high-pressure water when needed. The valve’s inherent wear-resistant design, stringent material specification and quality manufacturing procedures ensure a long service life in the most demanding high-pressure environments.
- Proportional poppet descale valve: Hunt Valve’s proportional poppet valve for descaling applications lasts three to five times longer than traditional poppet valves. This valve’s ceramic technology optimizes the component’s useful service life and eliminates pilot shifting. Minimizing the effects of water hammer and system shock, the proportional poppet descale valve promotes safety, reduces annual operating costs and decreases unscheduled downtime in the plant.
