What is a Pressure Reducing Regulator?

What is a Pressure Reducing Regulator? Oil and gas producers use a Pressure Reducing Regulator to maintain a downstream pressure set point. It is a regulator, or “pilot-integrated valve,” because the pilot and the valve come together as one piece. Some may also refer to this regulator as a “pressure control valve” or a “pressure reducer valve.”

What is a Pressure Reducing Valve?

What is a Pressure Reducing Valve? Kimray’s Pressure Reducing Valve (or Regulator) creates and holds a downstream pressure set point. Additionally, it is considered an “integrated valve” because the pilot and the valve are one piece. You’ll often see the Pressure Reducing Valve used as a suction controller or recirculation valve on compressors, or to supply

Liquid and Well Slugs in a Back Pressure Valve

Recently I visited a customer’s operations in west Texas. The challenges we encountered there—including valve placement and well slugs—were very common, so I thought I would take a minute to share what we found in case it’s helpful to other producers.  The customer had been using Kimray control valves and equipment for the life of

Kimray's Gas Pressure Reducing Regulator

Kimray’s Gas Pressure Reducing Regulator

What is a Pressure Reducing Regulator? Kimray’s Pressure Reducing Regulator is used to maintain a downstream pressure set point. Otherwise known as a “pilot-integrated valve,” Pressure Regulators are often used as suction controllers. In addition, they can also be used as recirculation applications on gas compressors and as fuel gas suppliers. To work properly, the

Repairing Your Back Pressure Regulator

Kimray’s Back Pressure Regulator is a staple in oil and gas production. It’s used in numerous oilfield applications, including on separators, flow treaters, free water knockouts, compressor stations, and gas gathering systems. Operation Considered an “integrated valve,” the regulator’s pilot—the key to opening and closing the it—is connected to the valve body and comes out as
