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

3 Reasons to Use Compressed Air to Power Your Control Valves

In this video, Mark shares 3 reasons you should consider compressed air to power your control valves: Wet Gas, Housed Skids, and Emissions Regulations. Suppliers introduced pneumatic controls so producers could use the natural gas produced from the well to operate them.   This was the default procedure for decades. Recently, however, this has been changing due to three

How does a Pneumatic Level Controller Work?

A pneumatic level controller works with a control valve to provide liquid level control in oil and gas production. Producers typically employ these controllers on production vessels like horizontal and vertical three-phase separators. Some also use them on two-phase separators, glycol dehydration systems, and free water knockouts. How a Pneumatic Level Controller Works In a pressurized

Free Water Knockouts

What is a Free Water Knockout (FWKO)?

What is a Free Water Knockout (FWKO)? A free water knockout (commonly abbreviated as FWKO) is an oil and gas production vessel that separates the produced oil emulsion into its various elements. What is “Free Water”? Free water is water produced with crude oil that is not emulsified. Free water will generally settle out of
