Liquid Level Control

How does a Pneumatic Actuator Work?

Pneumatic Actuator A pneumatic actuator sits on top of a control valve and opens and closes the valve. Oil and gas producers use pneumatic actuators and control valves to control processes ranging from back pressure regulation to pressure reduction to liquid level control. How a Pneumatic Actuator Works A pneumatic actuator is one component of

Kimray Pneumatic Level Controllers

How does a Pneumatic Level Controller Work?

Pneumatic Level Controller A pneumatic level controller works with a pneumatic control valve to provide liquid level control in oil and gas production. Producers typically employ these controllers on production vessels like horizontal and vertical three-phase separators. Some also use them on two-phase separators, glycol dehydration systems, and free water knockouts. How a Pneumatic Level Controller

Producer Solves the Oil and Gas Separator Emulsion Mystery

Recently, a producer ran into a problem in Catarina, Texas. As the Technical Development Engineer, he was responsible for keeping this field producing smoothly. But it seemed his liquid level controller wasn’t maintaining the proper interface of oil and water. Oil and gas producers use separator vessels (like the one below) to separate a well stream

Quick Tips Video | How to Weight a Float Ball

In this video, Jerry from Kimray and Tim from Superior Fabrication (SFI) discuss utilizing a float ball with a float arm inside a vessel along with a mechanical dump valve. In a production process the oil floating on top of the water has an interface line. For this float to be able to sense the water

Electric Level Switch

The Kimray Horizontal Electric Level Switch was originally developed to operate solenoids, relays, and small motors. These devices typically require several watts of power, and fit well in the range of 3W to 100W for the standard horizontal level switch. However, with the trend moving to automation and process monitoring, there is a need to
