Is focusing on reducing costs from your hydraulic valve one of your 2018 goals? Or, maybe your overall budget was cut this year. Whatever the case, there are ways you can cut costs or save money with your valves.
For many of us, the new year brings with it a new budget. If you’ve noticed a downgrade in performance from your descale valve, chances are that you’ve included upgrading or replacing it in your 2018 plans. But, before you call your supplier and just order the same replacement model, you should check out what new technologies are available since the last time you needed a valve.
Hydraulic and descale valves are the type of equipment that you tend to only think about when there’s a reason. And, those reasons usually relate to problems such as leaks, malfunctions, system downtime, etc. When addressing these issues, do you look for quick, band-aid-type fixes or long-term solutions?
If you're heading to AISTech 2017 in Nashville, Tennesse from May 8-11, make sure you stop by the Hunt Valve booth #1351. You'll get the best takeaway for saving money on descale valve costs and return to work a hero! What could that be? We have the best, longest-lasting descale valves available! Our Mega-Flo C Plunger Valve and Proportional Poppet Valve are designed with state-of-the-art ceramic technology. The...
There is a trend in the industry to transition to electro-mechanical actuators from pneumatic actuators. Even before Hunt Valve’s newly acquired Actuator Division, we began implementing electro-mechanical linear actuators to our latest descale valves, the Proportional Poppet Valve and the Mega-Flo C plunger-style valve.
Hunt Valve is leading the way in innovation in the descale valve industry. It’s newest products, namely the Ceramic Proportional Poppet Valve and the Mega-Flo C Plunger Valve, feature advanced ceramic materials in key components of these valves. The ceramic technology makes these the longest lasting descale valves by a long shot over any other valves (up to five times longer for the poppet valve and up to three...
Our engineers have been working diligently over the past year, refining our proven descale technology to deliver the highest level of durability and reliability of any descale valve in the world. The result is a complete spectrum of descale valve options that help you reduce operating costs for steel producers.
In a past post, we explained how to minimize leakage in your high-pressure water valve system by choosing a descale valve that operates within its recommended design parameters. However, this is easier said than done. You also need to consider the following risk factors related to operation, flow media and alignment:
If you take the time to properly design and configure your high-pressure water hydraulic system, then valve leakage should be minimal. The first step to managing this issue is understanding the difference between internal and external leaks. Some leakage may be inevitable and tolerable within a descale valve system.
