PROCESS VALVES

Cameron’s Valves & Measurement (V&M) group is a leading provider of valves and
measurement systems to the Oil and Gas industry. The group’s products are primarily used
to control, direct and measure the flow of oil and gas as it is moved from individual
wellheads through flow lines, gathering lines and transmission systems to refineries,
petrochemical plants and industrial centers for processing.

The Process Valves division provides critical service valves for refinery, chemical and
petrochemical processing businesses and for associated storage terminal applications,
particularly through the ORBIT® and GENERAL VALVE® product lines. ORBIT and GENERAL
VALVE lines are complimented by WKM® and TBV™ valve products and expand the scope
of this division’s product offerings.

OPERATING PRINCIPLE

The ORBIT valve top entry design provides convenient


access for inline inspection and repairs when required.
For environmental protection, injectable packing can
be replenished while valves are under full line
pressure, on enclosed bonnet models.

Every ORBIT valve incorporates a proven tilt


and turn operation that eliminates seal
rubbing, which is the primary cause of valve
failure.
When an ORBIT valve is closed, the core is
mechanically wedged tightly against the seat,
assuring positive shut-off.
When an ORBIT valve begins to open, the core
tilts away from the seat and line flow passes
uniformly around the core face.
This eliminates the localized high velocity
flow that typically creates uneven seat wear in

The absence of seal rubbing during both

valve operation and long term reliable
performance.
When valve leakage cannot be tolerated, the
ORBIT operating principle can be relied upon
to deliver a positive shut-off.

PRODUCT RANGE AND OPTIONS
ORBIT valves are manufactured in a
variety of materials, sizes and trims
to meet specific requirements.

MATERIALS:
Carbon Steel, Stainless Steel, Duplex SS, High
Nickel Alloys and other special materials are
used as service conditions require. Internal and
external protective coatings are available for
added durability in corrosive situations.
SEATS:
Elastomer or metal seal options are selected
for the intended service. Because the seals in
the valves do not rub and because they are
mechanically compressed shut, they survive in
high temperature and abrasive situations.
OPERATION:
ORBIT builds complete packages that may include valve, actuator and
Hand or power operation can be selected.
instrumentation. Single source responsibility removes any doubt about
where to call for service. ORBIT builds double acting, spring close and
spring open pneumatic actuators. User
selected electric and hydraulic actuators are
available. Extensive instrumentation choices
are offered.
CUSTOMIZING:
Handwheel extensions, safety interlocks,
position indicator limit switches, thermal
jackets, custom painting and special inspection
can be provided.
