Hunt Valve’s Critical-Service Descale Valves: Continuous Production with Minimal Downtime

To ensure superior surface quality and compete in the steel commodities market, steel manufacturers must use a descaling process that delivers optimal performance throughout the total length of the product. Hunt Valve’s descale valves are designed to create the best descale impingement with the least amount of water and provide the highest pressure possible to the descale headers, maintaining this pressure throughout the strip length.

Our critical-service descale valves deliver reliable, continuous production with the least amount of downtime at rolling mills. These valves have supported decades of dependable performance at the world’s leading steel production facilities.

Innovative Proportional Poppet Valves for Descaling Applications
Hunt Valve’s proportional poppet valve for descaling applications lasts three to five times longer than traditional poppet valves. Removing the effects of water hammer and system shock, this innovative valve promotes safety, reduces annual operating costs and decreases unscheduled downtime in the plant. Proportional poppet valve technology is ideal for all descale applications, includingcontrol-valve2_200.jpg

•    Accumulator safety shut-off
•    Header pre-fill

Even if you don’t upgrade to Hunt Valve’s cost-saving, state-of-the-art poppet technology, we still offer support for our legacy plunger style valves, which were designed with a hollow-drilled, radial-ported plunger. In fact, Hunt Valve will continue supporting the new valve, remanufacturing and spare part requirements for its legacy plunger-style descaling products.
