The Low-E Series has been third-party verified for compliance to the EPA’s Certified Low-Leak Technology (CLLT) standards. When used with the Camflex GR valve, the leak rate for the Low-E series is only 1 ppm, which is lower than for any competitive products.
Key Components of the Camflex GR
Existing Masoneilan control valves within your facility or pipeline can be upgraded to the Low-E packing using a field retrofit kit. If you are installing new valves or replacing outdated ones, Camflex GR should be your first consideration.
We have written previously about the Camflex GR. Here, we will discuss in more detail the design features that elevate this valve above all others.
The Masoneilan Camflex GR design is highly adaptable, handling roughly 80% of applications in any given plant. It combines the advantages of the eccentric rotating plug and the best features of a reciprocating globe-style control valve.
Reliable Tight Shut-Off
The eccentric rotating plug design eliminates seat ring friction due to the plug center being offset from the shaft axis. The only contact between plug and seat is at the moment of seating, resulting in no rapid seat wear.
Multiple Possible Installation Positions
The Camflex GR is about 1/3 to ½ the size, and about half the weight, of a typical reciprocating globe valve and suitable for a variety of piping requirements. The actuator can be mounted in several orientations and the valve itself can be rotated and reoriented in the field.
Streamlined Maintenance & Ownership
With Camflex GR eliminating gaskets, the straight-through flow pattern helps prevent distortion, erosion, and sediment collection, which are largely the reasons other control valves require maintenance.
The Camflex GR has one plug for each valve size, no matter the Cv and the same actuator for multiple line sizes and air fail modes providing a lower cost of ownership and fewer spare parts needed. The process to replace the packing is also simplified, just disengage the safety pin and extract the shaft to remove the packing.
Partner with Eastern Controls for Your Valve Needs
Eastern Controls is a verified Masoneilan Channel partner and a Masoneilan Authorized Repair Center (MARC). We hold an extensive inventory of Masoneilan valves assemblies, spare parts, and valve positioners as part of the Masoneilan ValvFast program. This enables Eastern Controls representatives to quote, assemble, and ship a complete valve assembly for emergency replacement or standard MRO in less than 24-hours, in most cases.
