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

Simply put, back pressure that 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

Electric Gen II at Well Site

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

Vertical and Horizontal Oil and Gas Separators

Oil and Gas Separator: How It Works

An oil and gas separator is a vertical or horizontal vessel that producers use to separate the elements of a fluid stream. The typical elements in the stream are oil, gas, water, and sand or sediment. Oil and Gas Separator Phases Oil and Gas separators are classified as two-phase and three-phase separators. Two-phase separators handle
