The Best Suction Controller for a Natural Gas Compressor

The Best Suction Controller for a Natural Gas Compressor

What is a Natural Gas Compressor? A natural gas compressor is a large engine that uses positive displacement to compress natural gas.   In this video, Breck shows you a solution for suction control on a gas compressor.  Regulating Flow in a Natural Gas Compressor Natural gas compressors require precise regulation of the gas flow to keep

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. The pilot and the valve come together as one piece, making it a regulator, or “pilot-integrated valve.” Some may also refer to this regulator as a “pressure control valve” or a “pressure reducer valve.” Unfortunately,

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, the pilot and the valve are one piece, which designates it as an “integrated valve.” 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. Therefore, I thought I would take a minute to share the findings in case it’s helpful to other producers.  The customer had been using Kimray control valves and equipment for the life of this
