Vertical Separators at a Well Site-01

3-Phase Separators: An Overview

Produced well fluids consist of various amounts of oil, water, natural gas, and sediment. The first step in oil and gas production is to split the flow up into its individual components with a separator. A three-phase separator uses gravity to separate produced well fluid into gas, oil, and water phases. Installation of these vessels

Kimray Control Valves Being Used as Dual Dump Valves

Should You Be Using Dual Dump Valves?

Oil and gas producers use dump valves to dump liquid from production vessels when the level reaches a pre-determined point. Recently, we have seen a lot of producers in the Permian and New Mexico move to using dual Kimray High Pressure Control Valves in dump valve applications on their separators. This practice is also starting
