Article How It Works: Ball Valves
Ensure bubble-tight sealing from a range of design options.
The Cameron WKM 310C5 floating ball valve satisfies a wide range of applications. Engineered for heavy-duty, reduced-maintenance performance, and available in a variety of materials, the WKM 310C5 ball valve is preferred for use in critical applications.

Seat trim 92H has been developed to handle highly abrasive slurries such as lime mud, catalysts, and coal slurries. Using 316 stainless steel as a base, the ball and seats are coated with an abrasion-resistant skin of chromium oxide and are lapped together to form a matched metal-to-metal sealing set. The coating has a hardness of Vickers 1200 to 1400, which is approximately equivalent to Rockwell C 72-74. Valves trimmed for this service can be rated up to 600 degF [316 degC].
DynaSeal pressure seals have served for years in gathering lines, manifolds, and field processing units in sour oil and gas fields. They can be trimmed to conform with NACE MR0175.
