If you’re an experienced engineer, you know how important it is to plan ahead when designing hydraulic or pneumatic circuits. Of course, this is especially true when selecting high-pressure water valves. By taking the time to analyze the application parameters and choose the right valve during the design/planning phase, you’ll maximize the useful life, safety and overall efficiency of your hydraulic or pneumatic system.
To help plant and maintenance engineers hone their industrial valve selection skills, Hunt Valve has published a free infographic highlighting expert advice on how to select the best high-pressure water valve for an industrial application. Download the “High-Pressure Water Valve Selection Checklist” to review the following four steps during the planning stages of circuit design:
1. Consider the operating parameters: Review the requirements of closed-loop and open-ended systems. 2. Plan ahead for heavy-duty challenges: Fight against premature wear and water hammer. 3. Identify the ideal industrial valve design: Consider three of the most popular high-pressure water valve designs. 4. Pick the best industrial valve configuration: Review six common industrial valve configurations for hydraulic and pneumatic systems.
