High Pressure Control Valve being used as a part of a package

What is a High Pressure Valve?

A high pressure valve is a valve that can operate in pressures above 500 PSI. What’s Considered High Pressure? The design of a high pressure valve allows it to operate at a maximum working pressure of 500 PSI or more without damaging the valve body. How is a High Pressure Valve Powered? One of the

What Does “Back Pressure” Mean, and Why Is It Important?

Simply put, back pressure that is pressure that is held back. “Back” in this context means against the natural flow of fluid or gas. In oil and gas applications it refers to upstream pressure that is held, or maintained, in a variety of production vessels to provide the right conditions for separation and processing. Production

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

What is Critical Flow Factor (Cf)

What is Critical Flow Factor (Cf)?

What is Critical Flow Factor (Cf)? Critical Flow Factor, often referred to as “Cf” is a coefficient that defines how pressure will recover after it drops to its lowest point inside the control valve. This lowest point is also referred to as the vena contracta*. All globe-style control valves have a Cf that stays consistent regardless of

How to Operate the Kimray Glycol Pump

At the heart of any glycol dehydration system is the glycol pump. This pump works within the dehydration system to recirculate liquid and help the system remove water vapor from natural gas.  How the Glycol Pump Works Fundamentally, the pump does two things at the same time: Moves wet (or rich) glycol from the contactor to
