What is a Double Check Valve

The double check valve, a backflow prevention device, safeguards against flow reversal. Such flow reversal can cause pump cavitation, contamination, or simply result in the suboptimal operation of a process…

Diaphragm Valve vs. Ball Valve

Irrigation, industrial process control, and household applications such as on/of valves, and laundry washers require either diaphragm or ball valves. So how do you know which is the best to…

Needle Valves

Needle valves, sometimes called plunger valves, enable engineers to control and regulate subtle flow and pressure changes. The needle valve’s stem provides precise control by moving a piston tube open…

Plug Valves

Plug valves are a type of valve that utilizes conical and cylindrical plugs to stop or throttle flow in a system. The plug has an opening in the center that…

Orbit Valve

The Cameron ORBIT® valve is a rising stem ball valve. Characterized as a ball valve, ORBIT valves offer specific advantages that allow for its use in difficult applications in oil,…

Check Valves

Check valves are valves that allow for the flow of a fluid in only one direction within a piping system. Their assembly typically consists of an inlet and an outlet…

Pinch Valves

Pinch valves are used to stop or control the flow of a fluid by “pinching” an internal sleeve that restricts flow within a valve assembly and controls it for an…

Diaphragm Valves

Diaphragm valves provide leak-proof control of abrasive and corrosive liquids such as suspensions, pulps, and slurries. Diaphragm valves feature a flexible elastomeric diaphragm that consists of a valve body and…
