or slips.GENERAL VALVE Four-way Diverter Valve FEATURES AND BENEFITS Cameron’s GENERAL VALVE Four-way Diverter Valve does ® Fast-cycling Fast and easy operation by hand or automatically with electric motor or hydraulic actuators is possible. The seals themselves are highly resilient elastomers which are either bonded or mechanically retained in the slips. away from the body prior to cycling. therefore it is recommended that all manually operated four-way diverter valves be equipped with a latching device to maintain seating position when the valve is unattended. move perpendicularly against the face of the ports. There is never any sliding or rubbing of the seals against the valve body or ports. Because the seating segments are mounted via dovetailed connections to the plug. Mechanical retraction and compression ensures no-leak stream separation and longer life. The standard gear-operated four-way diverter valve is not self locking. Metal-to-metal secondary seating prevents over-compression of the resilient primary seal. be sure to select only selflocking actuators. Lower cycling torque permits use of smaller and less expensive power actuators. Resilient seal before compression Resilient seal after compression In-line Maintenance In-line maintenance cuts operating and downtime costs. Retraction of the slips. When sold as a motor adapted valve. This added flexibility allows the valve to be installed upside-down for easy access to actuator and slips. This item is available as an option (see page 8). which can damage seals. 2 . not rely on line pressure or external hydraulic pressure for positive sealing. prevents friction and abrasion. they can be removed from the top or the bottom and examined without having to take the valve from the line or disturbing the actuator. The seating elements.

As the valve is unseated. As the seals trap fluid between them. The pressure gauge indicates line pressure. the body pressure gauge once again indicates less than line pressure. The resulting increase in volumetric space between the slips. Seated in “L/R-Open – CW” Position The plug and slips are in a fully rotated position. The four-way diverter valve uses the reliable pressure gauge method of checking for positive sealing to ensure metering accuracy. Position-indicator switches are available for remote locations (see page 8). The plug moves down. As the slips expand in the diverted position. 3 . the valve is seated and the flow streams are completely separated. the resilient seals contact the valve body. the hole through the plug allows the flow to pass directly from the inlet port to the outlet port. will cause a drop in pressure. Here. The gauge automatically indicates seal condition each time the valve is seated during proving. The pressure gauge connects to the body cavity between the valve slips. the flow streams are completely separated. The pressure gauge indicates line pressure. expanding the slips against the body.Automatic Pressure Gauge The automatic pressure gauge is used for quick check of seal integrity. trapping the fluid between them. Then the slips and resilient seals are fully retracted away from the body. causing the plug and slips to begin to turn. and volumetric space increases. Continuous Flow Circulation Maintained Through Cycling Seated in “R/L-Close – CCW” Position Here. Note: Valve position is quickly identified with a top-mounted flag. Further expansion of the slips during valve seating compresses the seals further. without an increase in the amount of fluid. causing an immediate increase in cavity pressure back to line pressure. the plug is raised and both slips are retracted. Even the most minimal fluid leak will register on the gauge immediately. Neutral – Fully Unseated Position At this point in the cycle. A pressure switch can be used to supplement the gauge method as an option (see page 9). even in low-differential operating conditions. Any leakage through either seal permits additional fluid to enter the body cavity. Both the slips and the plug are designed so that the flow is not appreciably restricted when cycling. Pressure gauge in the body indicates reduced pressure.

therefore it is recommended that all manually operated four-way diverter valves be equipped with a latching device to maintain seating position when the valve is unattended. MANUAL GEAR-OPERATED LATCHING DEVICE The standard gear-operated four-way diverter valve is not self-locking. so there is no bounce-back. 8 . and the housing is explosion-proof for use in hazardous locations. actuator and power pack enhances the dependability of our equipment and simplifies your engineering procurement and service. Please provide us with your required voltage (standard voltage is 110 V). Each switch is DPDT-DB (form ZZ). which can be dentented in mid-position to allow free handwheel spin. The standard switching arrangement is one switch in each position. Having the ability to provide the valve. PORTABLE PROVER ACTUATORS DCGO Cameron’s 12-V direct current gear operator (DCGO) is ideal for repeatable proves with portable meter provers. DCGOs are capable of self-locking speeds in excess of 500 rpm. The DCGO is designed to be mounted on 2” through 6” ASME 300/600/900 four-way diverter valve gear operators and to operate the four-way diverter valve with DC power. The device uses a reversible latching pawl. simply release the pawl to latch the valve in either seated position. See page 11 for performance data. It has no belts. At the end of operation. Current capability is 10 amps resistive. This item is available as an option. The DCGO is battery-powered.REMOTE ELECTRICAL POSITION INDICATORS GOSP Cameron’s gear-operated switch package (GOSP) is designed to perform reliably in the toughest environments. 7 amps inductive. All electrical components are contained in one housing with no external wiring. Also standard is a space heater to prevent buildup of condensation. fully open and fully closed. The actuator and control systems are available with an optional power pack.

For satisfactory valve operation. 5.) 2) R  emote Monitoring Method with Differential Pressure Switch  A differential pressure switch can be added. which provides the user with the ability to monitor the body cavity pressure from a remote location and/or interface with other electrical devices. Cavity pressure need not drop to zero while seated. 2.  Shut-off valves are provided for repair only and must remain open during normal operation. (See page 3 for details. 3.Seal Integrity TWO METHODS OF CHECKING FOR SEAL INTEGRITY 1) L  ocal Monitoring Method with Automatic Pressure Gauge  The four-way diverter valve uses the pressure gauge method of checking for positive sealing to ensure metering accuracy. Differential Pressure Switch Gauge (Usually set at 10 psid) High Pressure Low Pressure Shut-off Valve (leave open) Thermal Relief Valve Shut-off Valve (leave open) Upstream or Downstream Connection Body Cavity Connection Notes: 1. 4. This method is useful when in close proximity to the valve.  Dissimilar pressure drop can be expected in each seated position. which is described fully in the beginning of this brochure.  Do not attempt to verify seal integrity by bleeding body cavity pressure to atmosphere.  Thermal relief valve will allow pressure trapped in the body cavity to be relieved to line. the line operating conditions must remain constant during seal integrity check. should there be an increase in pressure above line pressure. 6.
