What is a Back Pressure Valve?

A back pressure valve (or regulator) holds pressure on an oil and gas production vessel. The vessel can then hold a constant pressure so it can properly perform its function in the production process.

Our first product, introduced in 1948, was a back pressure regulator. It is the product that put Kimray on the industry map, and it continues to be one of our most popular.

Questions to Ask When Looking for a Back Pressure Valve Supplier

Oil and gas control equipment is vital to the performance of your company and the safety of your people. Here are three key things you want from suppliers:

  • Quality. Safety hazards abound in our industry. Quality and durability matter. Does your supplier have a reputation for quality?
  • Distribution. Can your supplier get you what you need? Do they have product availability in your region?
  • Support. What happens after the sale? Is there ongoing support, or does the supplier view the sale as merely a transaction?
