Kimray's E-LO Control Valve.

E-LO Control Valve Improves Temperature Regulation of Glycol Dehydration System

Recently, a customer with operations in the Eagle Ford was experiencing erratic temperature swings in their triethylene glycol (TEG) reboiler. The producer was trying to maintain a temperature of 390 Farehnhiet (199 Celsius). Glycol dehydration is a method of removing water from natural gas. Gas containing water—often referred to as “wet gas”—can cause a variety of

What is a Back Pressure Valve?

A back pressure valve is a specific type of control valve that is designed to hold pressure on production vessels—such as separators, treaters, and free water knockouts—and release upstream pressure when a designated set point is reached. How Do Back Pressure Valves Work? The Kimray Back Pressure Valve is considered an “integrated” valve because the

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

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—valves and valve actuation. In our effort to increase our automated, zero-emissions solutions, Kimray is offering two electric actuators, both effective, and both distinct. In this piece we’ll look at some specific features and typical applications of the Tritex

Over the last decade, as concerns about environmental protection have grown and emissions requirements have been updated, oil and gas producers are increasingly looking for ways to lower their atmosphere emissions levels. In 2012 the EPA published “Code of Federal Regulations 40, Part 60, Subpart OOOO”—”Quad O” for short. These regulations apply to all onshore
