Kimray Control Valves Being Used as Dual Dump Valves

Should You Be Using Dual Dump Valves?

Oil and gas producers use dump valves to dump liquid from production vessels when the level reaches a pre-determined point. Recently, we have seen a lot of producers in the Permian and New Mexico move to using dual Kimray High Pressure Control Valves in dump valve applications on their separators. This practice is also starting
