Shumate Industries has announced that its Hemiwedge Valve Corp. (HVC) division has entered into an agreement with Sunbelt Supply to represent and distribute the Hemiwedge® Cartridge valve to its Texas customers. The Hemiwedge® Cartridge valve technology incorporates the positive features of ball, gate, plug and high performance valves resulting in a mechanically sealing, tight shutoff valve with a simple operation that is suitable in a broad range of applications. The proprietary Hemiwedge® Cartridge technology encases all the internals of the valve within the Cartridge and allows inline replacements, significantly reducing down-time and supply disruption, especially in higher maintenance service applications containing entrained solids such as line scale, sand and debris. HVC’s current product line includes 2in to 12in valves and custom sizes of up to 20in, pressure classes from ANSI 150 to 1500 Class and API 6D monogrammed applications. Multiple trim internal packages are available as well as metal-to-metal seals for severe service applications.
