Valves

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…

Gate Valves

Gate Valves are used to completely shut off or provide full flow in a pipeline. The valve opens by lifting a barrier in the path of the fluid and allowing…

Actuators

An actuator is a mechanical device that converts energy into linear or rotary motion. Actuators are used in devices such as: motors, pumps, switches, and valves. In this article, you…

Globe Valves

Globe valves are used to start, stop, and regulate fluid flow via a disc that is moved into the fluid flow. They are frequently used in applications where fluid modulation…
