Close-Up of a Pneumatic Temperature Controller

What is a Pneumatic Temperature Controller?

Oil and gas producers use a Pneumatic Temperature Controller to control a set temperature in production vessels.  Its most common use is in indirect heaters, emulsion treaters, rebillers, steam generators, heat exchangers, cooler shutter controls, and salt bath heaters. How Does It Work? Pneumatic Temperature Controllers have a stainless tube to monitor changing temperatures. This tube connects

A Kimray Pilot Controlling a Kimray Control Valve

What is a Control Valve Controller?

On its own, a control valve will not technically control anything. In order to accurately control the flow of oil and gas, it needs a “control valve controller,” also known as a valve pilot. How Control Valves Work A control valve is a device that controls the flow of liquid or gas. To control the liquid

Solution for Liquid Level Control in Changing Production Fluid

In this video, Kimray Account Manager Kyle Andrews demonstrates a simple solution for liquid level control in changing fluid densities. The Challenge of Liquid Level Control in Changing Fluid Density The chemistry of a well’s production can change rapidly. This is especially common when it transitions from the injected fluids to normal produced fluid. Consequently,

A graphic asking, "What is a Solenoid Valve?"

What is a Solenoid Valve?

A “solenoid valve” refers to a valve that is controlled by a solenoid. The action of a solenoid is on/off or snap acting. In order to operate, the solenoid must receive an electric current from a switch. The current magnetizes the coil, moving the plunger in the solenoid and sending a pneumatic signal to the
