ITT Engineered Valves Cam-Tite® Ball Valve
The Cam-Tite® Ball Valve stands out due to its unique beveled edge ball design. The spherical surface of the ball is cut away around the port edge, creating a bevel that energizes the seat when the valve is closed. This mechanical compression of both upstream and downstream seats ensures a tight and dependable seal despite line pressure. The valve's low operating torque reduces lateral loads on stem seals, extending seat life and eliminating the problem of "breakaway torque" during extended valve openings. With superior performance, positive material identification, and meticulous quality assurance, the Cam-Tite® Ball Valve remains a top choice for flow control solutions.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS:
- Unique beveled edge ball design ensures a tight, dependable seal regardless of line pressure or pressure differential.
- Low operating torque reduces lateral loads on stem seals for superior performance and extended seat life.
- Eliminates seat damage caused by the leading edge of the ball port cutting into the seat during closure.
- Positive Material Identification (PMI) guarantees material integrity and compatibility.
- Extensive testing, including seat and hydrostatic shell tests, to ensure quality and reliability.
- Computer-generated stainless steel tags provide essential documentation for valve verification in the field.
- Ideal for industries handling corrosive media and aggressive chemicals.
- Suitable for applications requiring precise flow control and tight sealing.
- Cam-Tite® Ball Valves undergo rigorous testing to guarantee superior performance and durability.
- Hydrostatic shell tests conducted at 1.5 times the cold working pressure (CWP) rating.
- 80 PSI air underwater seat test to detect visible leakage.
- Special testing measures available for valves prepared for dry chlorine and other unique services.
- Additional testing options like mass spectrometer or helium leak testing available upon request.
