Cameron’s ORBIT®

valves are ideal for applications when zero leakage and frequent operation are demanded. They are used globally in gas processing plants using molecular sieve systems in switching service.

To Close an ORBIT valve

To close an ORBIT valve, as the handwheel is turned, the stem begins to lower.
Precision spiral grooves in the stem act against fixed guide pins, causing the stem and core to rotate
Continued turning of the handwheel rotates the core and stem a full 90 degrees without the core touching the seat
Final turns of the handwheel mechanically wedge the stem down, pressing the core firmly against the seat.

ORBIT valves are ideal where frequent cycling and a positive shutoff
are required, conditions that are prevalent in molecular sieve
applications in gas processing plants.

Market Operation

ORBIT valves are ideally suited for:
• Mol sieve dehydration
switches valves
• Flowlines
• Meter isolation
• Dryer switching
• Block and bypass
• Product segregation
• Emergency shutdown
