When specifying the components of a water hydraulics system, the valve experts at Hunt Valve know how extensive planning and analysis are required for long-term safety and reliability. Few would argue that valve selection is of critical importance. However, a key aspect of valve selection is understanding how the materials used in a valve will impact the performance of the..
Experienced engineers know how important it is to plan ahead when designing a hydraulic or pneumatic circuit. Careful planning is especially critical when faced with the challenges of selecting high-pressure water valves. After analyzing your application’s design parameters, you should consider the following challenges involved in using water as the flow media: Challenge 1: Contamination and Premature Wear If you’re..
Materials of construction have a long-term impact on the performance of your industrial valve and the overall hydraulic system. When choosing your high-pressure water valve materials, the following factors will help you with your selection: 1. Material Incompatibilities Understanding material incompatibilities is especially important for those parts of the industrial valve that will come into direct contact with the flow media. These..
As the Experts in Extreme Engineering, we know how damaging a poorly designed or maintained hydraulic system can be. In fact, industrial valve leakage is known to decrease efficiency, increase costs and expose employees to potentially harmful conditions. If you’re a plant or maintenance engineer, the last thing you need is your high-pressure water valves leaking profits out of your..
If you’re an experienced engineer, you know how important it is to plan ahead when creating circuit designs. This is especially vital when designing a hydraulic or pneumatic circuit and selecting high-pressure water valves. If you take the time to analyze the application parameters and select the right components during the initial design process, you’ll save yourself a lot of grief…
