Double Acting Hydraulic Gate Valve (Model FC)

Model FC Series Gate Valves are profiled after the original Cameron® Model FC. All dimension interchange with the original Cameron® Model FC. The Model FC is a Slab Gate Valve, bidirectional, which incorporates a backseating stem to isolate the valve pressure from the stem seal area.

OPERATION

Valveworks USA's double-acting hydraulic actuator is operated by application of adequate hydraulic pressure to the upper and lower side ports of the actuator. Hydraulic pressure on the internal piston will in turn force the bonnet stem to either open or close the valve, depending on whether the valve is direct acting or reverse acting. Proper amount of hydraulic supply needed per operation is found in the appendix.

Double-acting hydraulic actuators are very similar to single-acting hydraulic actuators; the main difference between them is absence of a spring in a DAH actuator. As an alternative, Valveworks USA DAH actuators have two ports which can be used either as a supply port or an exhaust port. These actuators are made-up of the following basic components in their construction: top shafts, top plugs, pistons, stems, wear bearings, seals and base plates with bolts for holding the actuators together. Furthermore, the Valveworks USA DAH actuators contain seals such as O-rings and polypacks. The seals provide strength; low friction; wear resistance; temperature changes; and the ability to form a tight seal; all of which make the seals capable of withstanding hydraulic industrial application requirements.

For low temperature applications, we use Valveworks USA proprietary valve lubricant (SAM-4012B). It is black in appearance and has a service temperature range of -75°F to 250°F.
