To many Upstream, Refining, and Petrochemical professionals a "Hex Valve" is a generic description for bar stock instrument, gauge, and orifice valves. That didn't happen by accident. These valves were originally developed, and marketed by us decades ago as a means to simplify the piping associated with gauge and differential pressure transmitter applications.

Since our acquisition in 1985 by Richards Industries, our product line has expanded to cover almost every conceivable primary and secondary valve (2, 3 and 5 valve manifold) application for a variety of automated process industries. From small 1/4" needle valves and patented stabilized instrument platforms for the Natural Gas Industry to high temperature primary valves and hydrocarbon sampling valves for Refineries and Power plants, to exotic gas distribution manifolds for our Biopharm customers.

Hex does it all with our original objective in mind......."Create value for the customer by simplifying the piping associated with instrumentation, and the distribution of process and utility fluids."
Hex Valve is committed to delivering the best products and customer service. Please give us your feedback!

  Features & Events
HexConnect Hex Connect Series - New!
Hex Connect is a complete line of natural gas measurement tools. Direct mount systems, manifolds, and related hardware.
  Hex Valve Monoflange Valve Video
Please watch the following video that demonstrates the controlled flow through the Hex monoflange valve. The OS & Y bonnet is for higher pressures and helps control the flow. If you have suggestions for other Hex Valve videos, please contact hex@richardsind.com with your ideas.
HM37A Series Hex HM37A Series
Hex Valve is pleased to announce the release of the HM37A Series horizontal twist manifold adapter.The adapter is used on a direct mount system that domes off horizontally from the orifice fitting. Instead of using a 5 valve angle manifold, you would use this to make the angle from horizontal to vertical.
HK02 Series Hex HK02 Series
Hex Valve is pleased to announce the release of the HK02 Series mono-ball valves. The valve can be used in conjunction with other valves in series to allow for a safer shutoff creating a double block for safety. This can also be used with a double block and bleed valve where safety shutoff is of great concern but still allows for a small profile.
Condensate Pots Hex Condensate & Seal Pot
Condensate pots are used as a barrier between the main line and the secondary instruments in the measurement of steam or other vapors which condensate to a liquid state insuring compatability with the secondary instruments. They can also be used to cool down very high temperature liquids.
