What is a Valve Actuator?

A valve actuator is the device that “actuates,” or moves, a valve open or closed. It is attached to and works in conjunction with two parts: the valve body and the valve pilot. How Does an Actuator Work? In a Kimray High Pressure Control Valve, the pneumatic actuator is comprised of several parts. These include

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),

Optimizing Plunger Lift with an Electric Actuator

Case Study: Does an Electric Actuator Make Sense? Electric actuators make production operations when pneumatics are involved more efficient. We were invited to a well site to determine if the Kimray R2L would work effectively on a conventional plunger set up. The field in question relies entirely on pneumatics. They use supply gas to actuate several
