Webtec answers customers' calls with its stainless steel hydraulic

valve range for marine and offshore HPUs




Webtec, the Cambridge (UK) based hydraulic measurement and control specialists will be displaying its range of hydraulic high-pressure, near zero-leak directional control valves specifically designed for use on marine and offshore hydraulic control / power units. Typical applications include drill rigs, deck machinery, lifting equipment and grease injection units.


Designed and manufactured in the UK, all 5,000 variants of the 280 series valve are available with optional ATEX (II 3G TX) and 3.1 material traceability certification.


Martin Cuthbert, Webtec's Managing Director, commented, "Customers of our 180 series of high-pressure aluminium valves that we have been making for over 50 years have increasingly been requesting a valve suitable for harsh environments. The new 280 series is the result of 18 months' engineering and builds on our current product knowledge, in a new stainless steel body and using state-of-the-art manufacturing techniques".


The 280 series is rated up to 700 bar (10,000 psi) and is a shear type directional control valve that utilises an optically flat rotary spool with pressure loaded seats to ensure near zero-leakage.  The valve body is produced from 316 grade Stainless Steel to prevent corrosion and is factory configurable to the user's requirements. Variations include 6 flow patterns, 3 flow/pressure sizes, 3 types of hydraulic seal side port, a manifold ‘O' ring port, straight or cranked handle, sprung centre or detent handle action, and various mounting options.


With over 50 years' experience in the design and manufacture of hydraulic control valves, Webtec operate a Quality Management System that complies with the requirements of BS EN ISO 9001:2008 which is externally audited and certificated each year.
