Hy-Lok is committed to providing the highest quality valve and fitting solutions.


With that in mind, in 2015, Hy-Lok USA submitted our stainless steel tube fittings to the Southwest Research Institute in San Antonio, Texas, to conduct a variety of tests to ensure our products’ ability to meet ASTM F1387-12 and SAE MA 2003 requirements.

Visit Hy-Lok USA at the 2017 Underwater Intervention Exhibit February 2017

Leave a Comment

If you’re attending the 2017 Underwater Intervention exhibit between February 21-23 in New Orleans, LA, make sure to stop by booth #229 to say hello to Hy-Lok USA.
Underwater Intervention is a not-for-profit industry conference and exhibition, jointly owned by the Association of Diving Contractors International and the
ROV Committee of the Marine Technology Society.

Until the early 1990’s, these two non-profit, professional organizations hosted separate conferences – ROV Intervention and the Diving Symposium.

The increased common ground between the commercial diving and ROV (remotely operated vehicles) industries created an atmosphere ripe for a merger of the two conferences.  In 1993, the first Underwater Intervention was hosted in San Diego, California.  Now, 22 years later, Underwater Intervention has grown to encompass more industries in addition to Commercial Diving and Remotely Operated Vehicles.  The exhibit now includes Manned Submersibles, Instruments and Sensors, Sonar and Acoustics, Ocean Engineering, Marine Salvage and Shipwrecks, AUV and UUV Technology.

Again, Hy-Lok USA will be exhibiting again this year at the 2017 Underwater Intervention exhibit, you can visit our booth #229 on February 21-23 at the Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, LA.

We hope to see you there!

Visit Hy-Lok at the DUG Permian Basin Expo!

Leave a Comment

Hy-Lok USA is eager to attend the Developing Unconventionals Permian Basin Expo at the Fort Worth Convention Center from May 23-25th. We will be at booth #111 and invite all attendees to stop by!

The Conference:

Dug PermianThe DUG conference series is an initiative of Hart Energy and designed to provide industry leaders with a platform through which to discuss business challenges and opportunities. The attendees of this conference are diverse in their professions, and include pipeline operators, financial investors, service companies, regulators, policy makers, attorneys, and other energy service professionals.

The topics covered each year are timely and relevant, contributed by the conference organizers who understand the issues best. Each event offers data, insight and forecasts about all aspects of energy products, including financing, exploration, drilling, production, and delivery. The environment for critical discussion and conversation is respectful and engaging, and we are excited to be involved.

This is an ideal conference for you if oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids (NGLs) from shales matter to your and your business. The actionable intelligence available at DUG will be invaluable for your company and the general edification of your guests. Take advantages of speeches by featured guests, informative panels, inspiring technical spotlights, networking sessions, and many other benefits which this conference provides. We look forward to seeing you there.

The Permian Basin:

The United States oil and gas industry has relied on the Permian Basin for energy production for nearly 100 years. West Texas is endowed with rock and solid infrastructure that’s ideal for shifting production to market, which is why top producers are investing in this lucrative region.

DUG attendees understand the best ways to navigate fluctuating commodity cycles, and have consequently moved their priorities from land-grab strategies to efficiency-based drilling programs in the Permian Basin. This strategic move corresponds with new discoveries of oil in unconventional formations and applications of unconventional drilling and completion techniques, among other significant industry changes.

BMA Awards

Fossil Exhibits International LLC is a trade show display and service company that creates compelling custom exhibits for business-to-business companies, including Hy-Lok USA.
The Business Marketing Association (BMA) recently acknowledged Fossil Exhibits’ incredible talent at the 2015 BMA Lantern Awards of Texas, Houston Chapter. In addition to two other awards, Fossil Exhibits earned the BMA Award of Excellence in the category of “Trade Show, Exhibits and Special Events” for their work with Hy-Lok USA on their new 20 x 20 booth design.

Hy-Lok USA was recognized in the “Small Trade Show Exhibit” category for our ultra-modern exhibit at the 2015 Offshore Technology Conference, which took place the first week of May in Houston. The “Small Trade Show Exhibit” category asked participants to utilize a 20×20 space (under 500 square feet) to upgrade their presence, increase brand awareness and attract a new, qualified audience to their exhibit.

“We are privileged to work with clients like Interwell, ShawCor, and Hy-Lok to help them achieve measureable results in their trade show program and create captivating exhibits that integrate with their complete marketing program,” said Madolyn Murdock, Executive Vice-President of Fossil Exhibits. “BMA Lantern Awards celebrate the best in B2B marketing and I am extremely proud of our talented team.”

Hydrogen Fuel Cell Cars Gain Traction

Leave a Comment

From self-driving cars to fully electric cars, we’ve seen many technical advances in the automotive industry the last few years. All of this hard work by designers and engineers also means releases of the latest hydrogen fuel cell models.

Hyundai released news of a 400- to 500-mile SUV with a hydrogen fuel cell design due out in 2020, after its fuel cell debut in 2015.

The crossover vehicle was first seen in California as the Tuscon with a 265-mile range. The team may also have in the works a Kia fuel-cell to live on the same style platform as the future SUV model.

California also debuted the 2016 Toyota Mirai hydrogen fuel-cell with its first delivery in the Sacramento area.

The first drivers were based on how close they lived to fueling stations. The vehicle is the first of its kind for sale, not just for lease. The Mirai, meaning future, refuels in about five minutes with a range of approximately 300 miles.

Honda brings us the Clarity Fuel Cell, which goes on sale later this year. Again, it will only be available in California, due to its current hydrogen fueling capabilities compared to other states.

The four-door sedan feels like a normal vehicle, but it boasts 174 horsepower and 221 foot-pounds of torque with an integrated power unit sitting at the front axis, making space for a fuel cell stack.

This mixes compressed hydrogen with oxygen to generate electricity, which feeds a lithium-ion battery pack and powers the motor.

The Audi Q5 HFC already debuted in 2009, but the luxury sport brand plans to bring style to fuel cell with a more updated design and more efficient fuel cell stack. Its existing car featured a compact lithium-ion battery and 90 kw of output.

Working in fuel cell for more than a decade, Audi hasn’t officially released what it will be working on for fuel cell this year. In that same vein, Lexus unveiled the Lexus LF-FC concept car with the fuel stack at the rear, control unit in front and hydrogen tanks in a T-shape for the best weight distribution.

Hydrogen fuel cell cars take hydrogen gas and power an electric motor, combining hydrogen and oxygen to create electricity that then runs the motor.

Considered electric vehicles since they are powered only by electricity, they are more similar to conventional cars because of their refueling and range.

In a fuel cell car, tailpipe pollution is eliminated since byproducts of the gas to electricity conversion are only heat and water. Though hydrogen production can lead to pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, fuel cell cars still reduce emissions by more than 30 percent compared to traditional gas-powered vehicles.

For now, to own or lease this type of car requires the driver to be close to hydrogen fueling stations.

Here, pressurized hydrogen is sold and takes about 10 minutes to fill existing models. The refuel is faster than recharging a battery and offers better driving ranges before the next fueling.

Designed to be completely compatible with hydrogen fuel cell technology, our 316 stainless steel parts are certified to work in pressures up to 6,000 psig.

Since the conversion of biomasses into biofuels in liquid or gas form can be complicated, we know how to work with you for your project–and guarantee certified quality and safety in our products. Contact us to learn more about our alternative fuel fittings.
