HPV Valves

For maximum pressures and difficult conditions

  • Low flow losses
  • Non-metallic valve ring with superior damping properties
  • Temperature resistant up to 300ºC (572ºF)

The HOERBIGER HPV valve is specifically designed for use under difficult conditions. Whether the use involves chlorine, hydrocarbons, hydrogen, noble gases or methane – the HPV valves satisfy virtually all the requirements of the natural gas, chemical, petrochemical and pharmaceutical industries as well as of the food and electronics industries. The wide range of uses includes reciprocating and diaphragm compressors as well as cooling equipment, for example for cooling the gas of turbo-generators or for mixing gases.

High pressures, operation without added lubrication or high temperatures do not impair the function of the valve. The profiled valve ring made of the carbon-filled, high-temperature-resistant and non-metallic synthetic material polyetherketone (PEK), which allows the valve to operate reliably at very high temperatures.
