By Business Wire News


Hunt Valve (, a fluid power engineering company specializing in severe-duty valves and components, will be showcasing a variety of specialty engineered control valves and servomotors/cylinders at HydroVision International, July 26–July 29 in Minneapolis, MN. Visit booth #451 to learn more about Hunt Valve’s 60-year history of providing specialty engineered products and solutions that meet the highest quality and reliability standards of hydro energy companies around the world.

“Reliability is especially critical to production in the hydro energy market because unexpected failures and unscheduled downtime result in a loss of production and profits,” said Brad Sterner, Hunt Valve’s president and CEO. “Since most energy producers do not have a large maintenance staff on site to perform maintenance on components that require frequent replacement, Hunt Valve offers specialty engineering solutions that deliver the maximum durability needed.”

HydroVision International is the largest gathering of hydro professionals worldwide, featuring hydropower-focused meetings, workshops, tours and an extensive exhibition. With over 70 sessions and 450 speakers, this event highlights perspectives on the role of hydropower, explores issues affecting hydro resources and helps participants develop a vision to meet challenges and ensure the future sustainability of hydro.

Reliable Specialty Engineered Servomotors/Cylinders and Control Valves

At HydroVision, Hunt Valve will feature an assortment of specialty engineering servomotors and valve cylinders, including:

  • Directional control valvesare manufactured with the high-quality design features required for raw water hydraulic applications. Hunt Valve’s water hydraulic directional control valves are among the world’s most reliable valves for these applications.
  • Wicket gate servomotorsarecustom manufactured to meet the strict quality and reliability requirements of hydro energy applications. These servomotors offer adjustable stroke limiters, hydraulic locking devices, pivoting rods and position feedback.
  • Proportional control valvesoffer high reliability in hydro energy applications. Their programmable variable closing speed fights water hammer while their electromechanical linear actuation simplifies maintenance.

Rapid, Responsive Remanufacturing Services

Hunt Valve will also showcase its rapid, reliable remanufacturing services, which are available when the company’s industrial valve and servomotor products require repair or reconditioning. Hunt Valve offers a 1-year factory warranty along with a price match guarantee v. local service. The company also provides unique designs for drop-in replacement and low-cost custom solutions for specific plant requirements.

“We can quickly remanufacture our valves to like-new condition with a full warranty, extending the value and useful life of your product,” explained Sterner. “In fact, our warranty is far greater than many local repair shops that don’t offer any warranty. With Hunt Valve, you get an authorized repair and a factory warranty—all at a great price.”
