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

Following the Pipes around an Oil and Gas Well Site

Oil and Gas 101: Following the Pipes around an Oil and Gas Well Site

In this Oil and Gas 101 video, we take a trip around a well site and explain what each piece of equipment is doing to separate the oil, gas, and water being produced. Well Head The well head is where it all begins. The producer in this video has drilled a well and set up

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

Vertical Separators at a Well Site-01

3-Phase Separators: An Overview

Produced well fluids consist of various amounts of oil, water, natural gas, and sediment. The first step in oil and gas production is to split the flow up into its individual components with a separator. A three-phase separator uses gravity to separate produced well fluid into gas, oil, and water phases. Installation of these vessels

Kimray Control Valves Being Used as Dual Dump Valves

Should You Be Using Dual Dump Valves?

Oil and gas producers use dump valves to dump liquid from production vessels when the level reaches a pre-determined point. Recently, we have seen a lot of producers in the Permian and New Mexico move to using dual Kimray High Pressure Control Valves in dump valve applications on their separators. This practice is also starting
