Kimray Back Pressure Regulator, a Natural Gas Valve

What is a Natural Gas Valve?

Natural Gas Production When producers drill a well, the fluid they recover is typically a mixture of oil, water, and natural gas. In some areas, natural gas is critical to the production of oil and gas. Companies often use it as fuel gas for burners and pneumatic valves across their production sites. Some producers also

How to Operate a Pressure Pilot

Uses of a Pressure Pilot A pressure pilot is used to monitor and control upstream or downstream pressure between 75 and 2500 psi. It does this by pneumatically positioning a control valve to achieve your desired set point. How a Pressure Pilot Works The Kimray PG Pressure Pilot is capable of acting in a direct
