Sincerity We will - be people with abundant affection and courage, who have sincerity. - make products free of deceit and ambiguity, that have sincerity. - make company full of harmony and brightness, which has sincerity. In April 1962 we formulated “Sincerity (Magokoro)” as our motto, with the aim of realizing our founder’s dreams and achieving further development. It expresses our management philosophy as an

A spirit of development that hasn’t changed ever since we started out. In homes, streets, offices …. and also at sea. Someplace in your surroundings that you haven’t noticed, HISAKA’s technologies and products are alive and doing vital work.

enterprise – “Let’s be a company that is trusted by society through providing it with products that are free of untruths and artifice. Thereby, let our members discipline and improve themselves and each other.” Just as individuals have beliefs and personality, enterprises have their own spirit and ethos. We want our basic spirit to be, “All members working actively with unceasing passion that is sustained by a rich humanity, aiming for a global HISAKA.” And we want their lively, forward-looking attitudes to form our ethos. Our motto “Sincerity” embodies such sentiment, and it is inherited by all HISAKA members, pulsating in their hearts and in their conduct.


Through our technology, HISAKA has created numerous Japan-firsts and world-firsts in response to the needs of the age.

Back in the days when Japan relied on imports from the U.S. and Europe for most of its industrial machinery, HISAKA succeeded in developing and commercializing Japan’s first dyeing-finishing machines, plate heat exchangers (PHEs) and ball valves, using as basis the original technology it had nurtured. Since then we have created numerous products that are “No. 1” in various ways – first in Japan, first in the world, largest in the world and so on, aiming to be a global specialist manufacturer in the fields of Heat, Dyeing and Valves. The HISAKA of today inherits that spirit of development and has taken on the challenge of developing manufacturing to new heights.

1996 World’s largest plate heat exchanger

For use in central cooling systems (CCSs) for petroleum, LNG and chemical plants in the Mid-East, we launched the “UX-100” – the world’s largest PHE – followed by the even larger “UX-130”.



We devised a double seal-line structure, with inner and outer gasket seal-lines. Using it we developed the “NX-50”, that achieved long life – double previous lifespans – under high temperature and pressure operation.

1975 Japan-first stainless steel sterilizer for pouch-food

With boil-pouch products in the limelight, we commercialized the “RCS” stainless steel sterilizer, that was cleaner and safer than the iron tank sterilizer used up until then.

1974 Rapid circular dyeing-finishing machine

Responding to the need for energy and resource saving due to the Oil Crisis, we developed a “Rapid Circular” dyeing-finishing machine capable of dyeing in 1/3 of the previous time. We sold 6,000 units of the two models, CUT-RA and CUT-RZ, on world markets.


For the first time in Japan, we developed and began manufacture of a cloth-dyeing machine, that used a wincing tank lined with thin stainless-steel plate. Subsequently we successfully developed high-temperature, high-pressure yarn dyeing and drying machines that incorporated our original concepts.



2001 Aseptic rice cooking line We developed an aseptic rice cooking line that gives both safety and tastiness by incorporating our groundbreaking rapid food sterilizer “RIC” and achieving additive-free production of cooked rice.

2007 Duax

We commercialized the ball valve, that achieves friction-free between the ball and ball sheet. With groundbreaking capability, it can be used under severe operating conditions with abrasive fluids, etc.

1986 Brazed heat exchanger

We developed a compact brazed heat exchanger (BHE), targeting manufacturers of mass-produced machinery for wide-ranging applications including refrigeration and hot water supply.

1960s 1951 Japan’s first dyeing machine

2013 High temperature and pressure-resistant PHE


1966 World’s first circular liquid dyeing-finishing machine

This realized completely in-liquid processing for the first time in the world and eliminated the shortcomings of previous dyeing machines for woven synthetic fiber goods, such as foaming and scuffing. It spearheaded our advance into overseas markets – for example it was introduced at the U.S.’s largest textile processor.

1955 Japan’s first plate heat exchanger

Embarking on development of a PHE with original technology, we perfected the “EX-2”, the nation’s first domestically produced PHE. We’ve expanded our market share ever since, as the domestic pioneer and top manufacturer of PHEs.

1966 Japan’s first plate evaporator

We succeeded in commercializing the nation’s first plate evaporator, based on our plate heat exchanger technology.

1958 Japan’s first ball valves To counter imports, we made use of our unique can-manufacturing technology to develop Japan’s first domestically produced stainless-steel ball valves. Since then we’ve won high market appraisal with our development of jacket valves, sanitary valves and automatic valves.

Ball valves

XXX Chemica

ls Inc.

In order to operate a plant with good efficiency, the fluids inside it must be efficiently controlled. Ball valves have the advantages of extremely low fluid friction and very short operating time, that can be exploited to contribute to efficient operation of a plant. These valves are used as key components for fluid control in a wide range of fields – chemicals, machinery, iron/steel, nonferrous metals, food, air conditioning, shipping, paper/pulp, and more.

Jumbo PHEs

Friction-free ball valves Aseptic diaphragm valves Our SHV Fine Top (with built-in fine-top solenoid valve) is a diaphragm valve made of PTFE (Teflon), whose concept is “zero micro-contamination”. It is employed in large numbers in the dairy, beverage and pharmaceutical industries, where high levels of sanitariness are demanded.


Friction-free ball valves are optimal as the valves in equipment that handles fluids containing powder or slurry, or that is switched on and off with high frequency. They are structured so that the ball does not slide against the ball seat during opening/closing. This means long service life and contaminant-free, efficient operation. These valves are also used in production lines that require high safety because they handle fluids, food additives, fine chemicals and the like, that must avoid admixture of foreign matter.

Plate heat exchangers (PHEs)

PHEs for marine

As lightweight, compact and high-performance heat exchangers, PHEs are used in industrial processes of all kinds, including chemicals, foods, air conditioning and sanitation, marine, paper and pulp, machinery, iron and steel, nonferrous metals, and more. Besides enhancing the efficiency of production equipment in various applications – heating, cooling, evaporation, condensation, heat recovery and so on – they also contribute to effective utilization of resources and saving of energy.

These PHEs are used for the cooling water coolers and lube oil coolers of main engines, and for the coolers of other auxiliary equipment. In large ships they are also used in the central cooler. Thus, in various different locations they play important roles for safe voyaging.

These are the largest-sized PHEs in the world, and are produced by press machines that are also the world’s largest. Known as “Pioneer of Jumbo plate”, they are used in LNG, chemical, oil refining, power generating and other plants all over the world, while large models made of titanium are employed for CCSs (central cooling systems), that use seawater as cooling source, in offshore plants.
