According to Energy Products Company’s announcements, the ORBIT ball valve in its inventory is perfect for applications that demand zero leakage and frequent use. Its unique tilt-and-turn action ensures no friction between the sealing surfaces. This eliminates seal abrasion, which is the number one reason behind the wear and tear of the seat in the ball, gate, and plug valves. Enclosed bonnet models of this stem ball valve allow for in-service maintenance because of the stem packing material injected through the packing fitting.
The single-seat design results in a stationary seat that seals in both directions and eliminates pressure buildup between seals. These valves last long and minimize outages resulting from damaged or malfunctioning valves. They are a better value-for-money alternative than ball valves, gate valves, globe valves, and plug valves.
The ORBIT valve has a self-cleaning mechanism that works due to the tilting of the core away from the seat before rotation. The ensuing product flow removes foreign material and keeps the channel clean. With no seal rubbing, these low torque valves are easy to turn. The hard, polished core lasts long and helps in maintaining the integrity of the seal.
ORBIT valves find application with hydrogen service, heat transfer fluids and hot oil, suction and discharge isolation, emergency shutdown, product segregation, block and bypass, dryer switching, meter isolation, flowlines, Mol sieve dehydration switches valves, etc.

Energy Products Company states that 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, ensuring positive shutoff. 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 an ordinary ball, gate, and plug valves. The core then rotates to the fully open position.
Elaborating further, Energy Products Company shares that the ORBIT valves are manufactured in a variety of materials, sizes, and trims to meet specific requirements. Carbon steel, stainless steel, duplex SS, high-nickel alloys, and other unique materials are used as service conditions require.
External protective coatings are available for added durability in corrosive environments. Soft or metal-seated 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. Hand or power operation can be selected. Cameron’s ORBIT brand offers double-acting, spring-close, and spring-open pneumatic actuators. User-selected electric and hydraulic actuators are available. Instrumentation choices also are offered.
Handwheel extensions, safety interlocks, position indicator limit switches, thermal jackets, custom painting, and special inspection can be provided.”
