What is a Pressure Reducing Regulator?

What is a Pressure Reducing Regulator? Oil and gas producers use a Pressure Reducing Regulator to maintain a downstream pressure set point. The pilot and the valve come together as one piece, making it a regulator, or “pilot-integrated valve.” Some may also refer to this regulator as a “pressure control valve” or a “pressure reducer valve.” Unfortunately,

What is a Gas Pressure Regulator Used For?

Producers use Kimray Gas Pressure Regulators in numerous applications to provide control of oil and gas production processes. In the video above, Kyle walks through some specific applications, options, and troubleshooting scenarios for these regulators. He also breaks down these three types of pressure regulators: Back Pressure, Pressure Reducing, and Liquid Back Pressure. Back Pressure Regulator

Back Pressure Regulator vs Pressure Reducing Regulator: What’s the Difference?

In oil and gas production applications, it can be hard to tell the difference between a back pressure regulator and a pressure reducing regulator. So, What’s the Difference? A Back Pressure Regulator is a type of control valve designed to hold pressure on production vessels and release pressure downstream when a set point is reached. This pressurizes the vessels

What is a Back Pressure Valve (or Regulator)?

A back pressure valve is a type of control valve that holds pressure on production vessels such as separators, treaters, and free water knockouts and releases upstream pressure when a designated set point is reached. Invention of the Back Pressure Valve The Kimray Back Pressure Valve was our original valve, and it remains our most popular. Kimray
