Overview

Industry-leading reliability and performance

Cameron frac valves have earned a reputation for quality and reliability. Gate valves in frac trees and manifolds frequently flow and control high-pressure, high-volume, abrasive fracturing fluids for days—and even weeks. Given the erosive, corrosive, and sometimes sour nature of typical fracturing and flowback fluids, the valves are trimmed for maximum corrosion and erosion protection and feature

  • corrosion-resistant alloy (CRA) inlay in seat pockets and ring grooves
  • zero-chamfer flowbores to mitigate turbulence and hence erosion
  • two ports for flushing and greasing the valve body cavity.

Because of these features and the industry’s most stringent maintenance program, which includes cleaning, disassembly, inspection, reassembly, and testing before valves returned from the field are assigned to the next project, Cameron frac valves provide three times more uptime compared with other suppliers, minimizing NPT and related costs.

Wide range of valves to suit applications

Designed as a manual valve for high-pressure applications, the FLS-R-Frac valve is a heavy-duty, reliable gate valve for hydraulic fracturing. It reduces exposure to potential erosion and contamination associated with the midrange position because it quickly cycles from fully closed to fully open. The FLS-DA2-Frac gate valve offers all the same metal sealing features, with the addition of a double-acting hydraulic actuator for fast, positive, remote actuation. It remains in position should hydraulic power failure occur. The bidirectional FLS-Frac valve offers flow direction versatility and increased service life. The fullbore, through-conduit FLS valve is the preferred frac valve for 10,000-psi and 15,000-psi working pressures with 1 13/16-in nominal bore size.
