Drawings of three valve trims: snap, nominal, and percentage.

The 3 Types of Control Valve Trim

What is Control Valve Trim? High Pressure Control Valve trim consists of three basic items: the stem, ball, and seat. These are the operative parts that control the flow of liquid and gas through a valve. They are also the parts most exposed to process elements, and therefore most vulnerable to wear. What Types of

What’s the Difference Between Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP) and Valve Operating Pressure?

What is Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP)? The maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP) of a control valve (or regulator) is the highest amount of pressure the valve is rated to flow. If an operator forces the valve to flow pressure above the MAWP, the components—such as springs, diaphragms, o-rings, or the body itself—may fail. Here are

What is an Oil and Gas Control Valve?

A control valve is a device that controls the flow of liquid or gas. Kimray control valves are linear valves that have a stem in the middle. These can operate in modulating control or on/off applications. How Control Valves Work To “control” the liquid or gas, a control valve can open or close fully (on/off),

What is a Treater Valve?

O A treater valve is a mechanical on/off valve designed to hold liquid level. Oil and gas production vessels use a treater valve. Examples of these include: heater treaters, free water knockouts, and saltwater disposal systems. How Do Treater Valves Work? The treater valve actuates based on the hydrostatic pressure generated from a column of liquid
