At HBE we make products that make a difference

We are a primary global supplier of Automatic Recirculating Valves. We deliver our products through an established dealer network of independent companies providing specialized valve and control solutions.

Engineered Solutions

Since our first valve was manufactured and installed in 1984, HBE products have helped make the basic materials we depend on every day. Our valves are part of the process for refining petroleum, processing raw materials for pharmaceuticals and plastics, milling the paper for magazines and newspapers, and delivering utility services, just to name a few. These essentials are stronger, safer, purer, and more available because they are produced using HBE products.
