How Does Liquid Level Control work with a Mechanical Dump Valve?

Liquid level control in separation vessels is a critical component of oil and gas production. The design of Kimray’s Level Controller is to operate in conjunction with a Kimray mechanical dump valve. It maintains and controls the liquid level in oil and gas production vessels. These vessels include heater treaters, two-phase separators, three-phase separators, free

When to Use a Direct or Indirect Control Valve Pilot

When building a regulator package with a Kimray High Pressure Control Valve and Control Valve Pilot, the standard configuration calls for the following: Back Pressure control: a fail-open valve Pressure Reducing control: a fail-closed valve This is based on the assumption that a back pressure regulator protects the upstream from over pressure and therefore should “fail open,”

5 Tips for Operating and Maintaining Your Temperature Controller

If you’re on a production site, you’re almost guaranteed to see a temperature controller sticking out of a production vessel. Today on the blog we’re going to show you how to identify and troubleshoot issues when your temperature controller is not working correctly. There are three things that affect separation: time, pressure, and heat. When
