How to Achieve Liquid Level Control with a Treater Valve

What is a Treater Valve? The Kimray Treater Valve is a weight-operated throttling valve designed to hold liquid level in production vessels such as heater treaters, free water knockouts, and saltwater disposal systems. How the Treater Valve Works in Liquid Level Control The Treater Valve actuates based on the hydrostatic pressure. Production vessels like heater

6 Ways to Separate an Oil and Water Emulsion

An oil and water emulsion refers specifically to the fluid that comes directly from an oil and gas well.  When a well is produced, what comes to the surface is a mixture of oil, water, gas, and solids. After the gas has been separated from the liquid, the oil and water that remain must also be separated.   Emulsions in the oil industry are either classified as “water-in-oil“ or

What is a Filter Separator?

Producers use a filter separator to separate solids and liquids from natural gas. Specifically, a filter separator removes impurities such as pipe scale, water, iron sulfide, liquid hydrocarbons, compressor lube oil and sulfur products from the natural gas.  A filter separator differs from a standard separator vessel in that it uses filter elements to remove contaminants rather than using mechanical devices. In this video we explain:  Why and where filter

How a Line Heater and Separator Work in a Gas Production Unit

A Gas Production Unit, or GPU, is actually two pieces of equipment joined together inside one housing: a line heater and a horizontal separator. In this video, Kyle explains: What a gas production unit is Where and why gas production units are used The phases and sizes of a gas production unit The flow path through the unit Where and Why a Gas Production Unit is Used To be sellable,
