Masoneilan* 35002 Camflex* II Eccentric Plug Rotary Control Valve
Setting the Standard
Unlike some valves in the industry, the Masoneilan 35002 Series Camflex II eccentric plug rotary control valve is not an automated valve pieced together in a valve automation shop. Its thoughtful design elevates overall product integrity and reduces the risk of component failure and process upset. Offering process plant owners and operators an exceptional control valve choice, BHGE helps drive results on your key business metrics:
- Process uptime
- Asset utilization
- Control performance
Uncomplicated, yet attentive to all the right details, the Camflex II eccentric plug rotary control valve offers a universal integrated system of valve, actuator and positioner. The valve’s key design objectives — reducing friction, reducing drive-train slop, and mitigating component wear — are accomplished through a standard and simplified design architecture that helps this control valve reliably perform the basic functions of shut-off, throttling and emission control, over an extended lifetime.
Employing an Uncomplicated Geometry
The essentially linear flow characteristic of the Camflex II is established by the spherical geometry of the eccentric rotating plug. While the major portion of the flow curve is linear, there is a slight modification as the plug approaches the seat. As the plug cams into the seat, the rate of change in flow is gradually reduced until the plug makes full contact with the seat. This simple architecture provides the following benefits:
- Cv Ratio of 100:1 provides stable operation over a wide range of conditions
- Improved control at start-up (low flow/high control pressure drop)
The Camflex II eccentric plug rotary control valve is built on a standard platform with enormous versatility and breadth of application. Camflex created the eccentric plug, a true rotary globe control valve that packages the best features of a globe-style valve within rotary valve architecture. In addition, high-end features such as the extension bonnet, hardened trim, and high-performance low-emission packing are all standard, providing exceptional long-term reliability. In fact, Camflex valves regularly outperform other control valves in a variety of severely erosive applications where abrasive solids tend to tear apart other types of valves.
Optional constructions, such as the patented DVD* (Differential Velocity Device) noise reduction trim, alloy constructions and a cryogenic extension bonnet allow these valves to be tailored to fit your specific application needs. All of this combines to offer a low life cycle cost, from purchase and installation through start-up, operation and maintenance.
- Standard platform
- Wide-ranging applications
- Globe-valve performance
- Customized configurations
More than 1 million Camflex valves have been successfully installed and operated in a variety of process industries and applications. The latest Camflex design maintains the\ valve’s legendary dependability based on a field-proven concept that remains a standard of excellence for eccentric plug rotary control valves.
Tackling Key Challenges
Reliable Long-Term Shut-off
With its eccentric rotating valve plug, the Camflex II eccentric plug rotary control valve reduces two common valve shortcomings: excessive seal ring friction inherent in ball valves and high actuator forces required for tight shutoff of either conventional globe valves or butterfly valves.
Because of its unique seating action, the Camflex plug makes no contact with the seat until it rotates into its full closed position. Once seating occurs, continued shaft rotation causes the plug arm to flex, forcing the plug into deeper contact with the seat ensuring consistent tight shutoff. This reliable seating method reduces wear from rubbing contact, and the tight shut-off performance greatly reduces the possibility of clearance flow-induced wear or erosion. Camflex seating mechanics and resulting long-term reliable shut-off offer the following benefits:
- Reduced rubbing – greatly reduced friction and wear
- Improved uptime – extended maintenance cycles
- Reduced unplanned outages and production loss
By combining eccentric plug action with a long actuation lever, this valve achieves a 3:1 force multiplication. This means that only one-third of the force required to stroke a conventional single-seated globe valve is required for the Camflex actuator to stroke against a given pressure drop.
- Smaller actuator size
- Faster response speed
- Improved control performance
Environmental Emissions Compliance
Why pay extra to comply with current environmental emissions requirements? Unlike some control valves that require expensive specialized packing systems to satisfy low emission requirements, Camflex II eccentric plug rotary control valves come standard with the Masoneilan EF* seal (Emissions Free seal) technology.
- Standard at no extra cost
- Satisfies global low emissions standards requirements

Offering Cost-effective, Solutions for a Variety of Applications
The Camflex II eccentric plug rotary control valve easily adapts to a variety of applications, offering an efficient solution at competitive prices. Standard Camflex parts are available off the shelf, allowing for product enhancements that are typically offered as options on many of our competitors’ valve products. Such unique features as the standard extended bonnet allow for operation within a wide temperature range.
Globe Replacement (GR) Body
The optional “GR” (Globe Replacement) body configuration provides a longer body face to face dimension that matches most traditional globe control valves. This allows direct replacement of those valves without the need for piping modifications or spool pieces.
Broad Trim Size Selection
Unlike ball valves that typically offer only one trim size (Cv rating) per valve size, this valve is offered with full-area and at least two reduced-capacity options per size. In most cases, changing the Cv rating of a Camflex II eccentric plug rotary control valve requires only a simple change of the seat ring, rather than the complex replacement of multiple and often
expensive parts required for a Cv change of a conventional globe valve.
- Cost-effective Cv changes compared to conventional globe valves
- Available in 1-inch through 16-inch sizes from Cv of 0.5 to Cv of 3650
- Optimized trim selection improves control performance and durability
Low Noise Solution
Camflex II valves are available with patented Masoneilan DVD (Differential Velocity Device) noise reduction trim. This highly efficient yet economical low noise solution applies a concept from turbo-fan jet technology. The DVD device uses larger diameter outer holes to create a lower velocity annular flow stream around the flow area perimeter. This lower velocity flow stream reduces noise transmission from the higher velocity inner flow, resulting in lower external noise levels.
- Simple construction
- Efficient noise abatement
- Easy to retrofit
Severe Service Capability (High Temp, Low Temp, Erosive, Corrosive)
Since not all control applications involve easy-to-handle or non-hazardous fluids, we offer cost-effective valve options that tackle the challenges presented by extremely high or low temperatures, or corrosive/erosive fluid streams.
Standard Camflex II valves handle temperatures up to 750° F (400° C) using low-friction TFE packing. This is a big improvement over many competing designs that require graphite packing above 450° F (232° C), greatly increasing stem friction and reducing control accuracy. Its hardened trim handles mildly abrasive applications with ease. In addition, these valves include options that excel under even harsher conditions:
- Cryogenic Extended Bonnet option is available for use in applications to -320°F (-212°C).
- Steam Jacket construction available to maintain minimum flowing temperature
- Ceramic Trim option handles more severe erosive applications
- Alloy Construction is available for highly corrosive services
- High Temperature constructions available to extend the application range
- Flashing Trim option
Optional soft seat. ANSI Class V for reciprocating or Class VI or better for rotary.
