How Natural Gas Compressors Work: A Video Overview

How Natural Gas Compressors Work Natural Gas Compressors work by mechanically increasing gas pressure in stages (or steps) until it reaches the desired delivery point. The starting pressure and the desired ending pressure will determine how many stages a compressor will have. In the video above we cover the main types of natural gas compressors

Heater Treater in Oil and Gas: A Video Overview

An oil and gas heater treater uses heat to accelerate the separation of produced fluid. In this video, we will walk through separation, the different types of treaters producers use, and how pneumatic and mechanical controllers provide process control on these vessels. You will find heater treaters separating crude oil primarily in the upstream sector

Free Water Knockouts

What is a Free Water Knockout (FWKO)?

What is a Free Water Knockout (FWKO)? A free water knockout (commonly abbreviated as FWKO) is an oil and gas production vessel that separates the produced oil emulsion into its various elements. What is “Free Water”? Free water is water produced with crude oil that is not emulsified. Free water will generally settle out of

4 Common Signs of Glycol Pump Failure

The Kimray Glycol Pump is used to control triethylene glycol circulation in gas dehydration systems. In this video, we examine some internal parts of the glycol pump that have been damaged during operation.   We then explain what these parts may be telling us about the cause of the damage and offer some solutions to prevent further damage.   1. Scratches on the

Control Valves for Two-Phase Separation

Control Valves for Two-Phase Separation

Producers use two-phase separators to separate produced fluid from produced gas. Some of these separation vessels are made with 1″ connections for the controller. Kimray offers three solutions for controlling the separation in these vessels. Pneumatic Level Switch with External Float Cage  A Pneumatic Level Switch is a good option for two-phase separation, because it’s not
