Which Electric Actuator is Right For Me?

Valvcon or Tritex II: Which Electric Actuator is Right for Me?

At the core of the oil industry’s move toward digital, low-emissions operations is the process of control. Specifically, this refers to valves and valve actuation. In our effort to increase our automated solutions, Kimray now offers two electric actuators. Both actuators are effective and distinct. Let’s take a look at some specific features and typical

Vapor Recovery Unit in the DJ Basin Using Electric Pilot

A producer in the Colorado DJ Basin was using a pneumatic controller for an inlet suction control valve on a vapor recovery unit (VRU). Vapor recovery is a common practice in Colorado, and electric control products are becoming more common because of the strict emissions regulations there. In light of these needs, we asked the

A graphic asking, "What is a Solenoid Valve?"

What is a Solenoid Valve?

A “solenoid valve” refers to a valve that is controlled by a solenoid. The action of a solenoid is on/off or snap acting. In order to operate, the solenoid must receive an electric current from a switch. The current magnetizes the coil, moving the plunger in the solenoid and sending a pneumatic signal to the

Valve Automation Made Simple with the Kimray Electric Pilot

Kimray Valve Automation Electric control and valve automation are technologies that provide clear benefits for oil and gas operators. The primary advantages include zero emission valve control and remote monitoring of operations. This means a producer can access information about their production from the office, saving both travel time and money. However, while these benefits

Durable Dehy.

Application Guide for Dehydration

Glycol dehydration is a method of removing water from natural gas. When gas comes to the surface it contains some element of water. This gas/water mixture—often referred to as “wet gas”—can cause a variety of problems for downstream gas production processes, measurement, and equipment. Glycol is introduced into the mixture to trap the water embedded
