Kimray Pneumatic Level Controllers

How does a Pneumatic Level Controller Work?

A pneumatic level controller works with a control valve to provide liquid level control in oil and gas production. Producers typically employ these controllers on production vessels like horizontal and vertical three-phase separators. Some also use them on two-phase separators, glycol dehydration systems, and free water knockouts. How a Pneumatic Level Controller Works In a pressurized

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 Does “Back Pressure” Mean, and Why Is It Important?

Simply put, back pressure is pressure that is held back. “Back” in this context means against the natural flow of fluid or gas. In oil and gas applications it refers to upstream pressure that is held, or maintained, in a variety of production vessels to provide the right conditions for separation and processing. Production Vessels

What is an Electric Level Controller?

In upstream oil and gas, an electric level controller uses electric power to maintain a specific level of liquid inside a fluid separator. This liquid level control is a critical component of all oil and gas production. What’s the Advantage of Electric Level Control? An electric level controller like the Kimray Gen II provides an

How Liquid Level Controllers Work

Video Guide to Float-Operated Liquid Level Controllers

In this video, Mike explains how Kimray’s line of float operated liquid level controllers work. These are pneumatic or electric level controllers and level switches. They are commonly referred to as pilots because they are not valves themselves but they send a signal to a valve to open or close based off the liquid level that
