A Tulsa Product – API 5000 HBGV

The first five HBGV will be prepared with end connections specified by the companies conducting field trials. Critical internal parts are investment castings – made in Tulsa from 3D-printed wax patterns also made in Tulsa! The valve body and machined parts, assembly and testing – made in Broken Arrow, Tulsa’s neighbor to the East. Fully an Oklahoma product, the HBGV extends a long line of innovative industrial and oil & gas equipment, drilling rigs, submersible pumps, flare systems and pipeline pigs to severe service control valves.
