Pressure Regulators

Podcast: What Exactly Does a Gas Pressure Regulator Do? Episode #4

In this episode, Kyle Andrews, Product Applications Trainer at Kimray, explains what a gas pressure regulator does. Topics for Gas Pressure Regulator What’s the difference between a gas pressure regulator and valve? What does a gas back pressure regulator do? How is a production separator like a water gun? What would happen in a separator

How to Convert a Gas Regulator from Vent to Non-Vent

How to Convert a Gas Regulator from Vent to Non-vent

A back pressure regulator is a specific type of control valve that holds pressure on production vessels such as separators, treaters, and free water knockouts and releases upstream pressure when a designated set point is reached. When a gas back pressure regulator is operating correctly, it vents pressure off the diaphragm as it adjusts. However, some producers

Non-venting Pneumatic Control Valve

Limit Emissions with Non-venting Pneumatic Control Valves

The Emissions Challenge An ongoing challenge for oil and gas producers is maintaining optimal operation of their production while keeping natural gas emissions low. With states like Colorado and New Mexico moving toward more stringent emission regulations, and additional federal regulations always a possibility, producers need to start considering how to keep production moving despite emission

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 Does “Back Pressure” Mean, and Why Is It Important?

Simply put, back pressure is pressure that is held back. “Back” in this context means against the natural flow of fluid or gas. In oil and gas applications it refers to upstream pressure that is held, or maintained, in a variety of production vessels to provide the right conditions for separation and processing. Production Vessels
