Troubleshooting a Back Pressure Regulator

Kimray’s Back Pressure Regulator is a staple in oil and gas production. The Back Pressure Regulator allows you to hold pressure on production vessels by adjusting the set point to the desired maximum upstream pressure, which the valve senses and then releases when this designated set point is reached. It’s used in numerous oilfield applications, including on
