Hunt Valve’s Directional Control Valves: Long-Term Durability Means Much less maintenance

Few plant engineers would disagree that the biggest challenges when dealing with low-viscosity directional control applications are controlling corrosion, minimizing internal leakage and providing long-term durability. To optimize these applications, Hunt Valve has released directional control valves that offer the hydraulic directional control and long-term dependability needed for steel and aluminum production. From pump unloading to coil handling, these rugged valves are perfect for a variety of low-viscosity applications that require zero leakage and easy maintenance.

To develop the ideal directional control valve, our Experts in Extreme Engineering incorporated corrosion-resistant materials and a zero-leakage design, which are ideal for service on low-viscosity media such as raw water and 95/5. The product’s noteworthy durability is invaluable to plant engineers and mill managers who lack the funding and manpower needed to perform frequent maintenance.Hunt-Valve-Directional-Control-Valve.jpg

Hunt Valve’s directional control valves are designed with engineered sealing materials that deliver years of maintenance-free service. Plus, our special ceramic spool pilot valve gets rid of the fine filtration requirements that are associated with spool-type pilot valves built from traditional stainless steels.

Find the Right Valve for Your Application

Regardless of your industrial application, Hunt Valve manufactures spool- and poppet-type directional control valves to meet your requirements:
•    The MVO34 is a rugged hollow bore plunger valve that has been used in steel and aluminum applications for over 75 years. Its rugged plunger design is capable of operating in extremely dirty applications where filtration is minimal.
•    The Combo valveTM is a spool-type valve that incorporates an NFPA mounting interface and is designed to interface with the company’s mod-stack cartridge valves to provide a complete system solution for other functions such as flow control, pressure relief, pressure reducing, check and isolation.
•    The HPP poppet directional control valve utilizes zero-leakage seat technology that is controlled via a ceramic spool pilot valve for the ultimate in reliability. The dirt tolerance of the ceramic spool pilot eliminates the need for fine filtration.
