“Once you’ve specified your system parameters and analyzed the additives flowing through your hydraulic circuit, you must take the time to select the right materials of construction for your high-pressure water valve,” explained Brad Sterner, Hunt Valve’s president and CEO. “At Hunt Valve, our Experts in Extreme Engineering work with you to help you select the optimal materials that will deliver the long-term performance and cost benefits that your application demands.”

Hunt Valve’s latest infographic highlights two checklists for selecting industrial valve materials:

  • Materials for valve bodies, seats and spools: Explore the characteristics of popular materials such as ductile iron, stainless steel and various alloys.
  • Materials for seals, gaskets and packing: Discover the traits of several materials including polyurethane, Viton and polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE).
