Abstract: Four-way valves are used to change the direction of the processing medium in the pipe provers (PP) intended for checking and monitoring the metrological characteristics of flow meters used in crude quality control systems (CQCS) at oil and oil products transportation facilities.
This article describes four-way valves complete with electric drives developed jointly by KONAR JSC, Transneft Central Siberia JSC and Transneft R&D, LLC as part of research and development project (R&D project) Development of a size range for prototype models of four-way valves for pipe provers complete with a drive.
R&D project was carried out as part of the Program for localization of the production of imported products in Russia for the main pipeline transport of oil and oil products created and executed by Transneft in order to implement the strategy of import substitution. At the same time, the technical characteristics of the importsubstituting equipment must meet the company standards and ensure an increase in reliability of the oil main pipeline and oil product pipeline system, as well as guaranteed transportation of oil and oil products in accordance with industry and environmental safety standards.

Keywords: pipe fitting, four-way valve, pipe prover, PP.
