High Pressure Control Valves

Prevent Control Valve Body Replacement with the T-Body HPCV

With the increased use of proppant in well completions, control valve body replacement has become a regular requirement for oil and gas producers. Erosive production fluid causes equipment damage and can lead to environmental and safety issues as well as costly downtime.   High Pressure Control Valves bear the brunt of this erosion, and valve bodies can eventually

What Causes Choked Flow in a Gas Control Valve? 

What is Choked Flow in a Gas Control Valve? Choked flow is the point at which decreasing downstream pressure will not increase the flow through a valve. This typically happens in high differential applications in a high pressure control valve in gas back pressure or pressure reducing service. (What’s the difference?) What Causes Choked Flow?
