Control Valves for Two-Phase Separation

Control Valves for Two-Phase Separation

Producers use two-phase separators to separate produced fluid from produced gas. Some of these separation vessels are made with 1″ connections for the controller. Kimray offers three solutions for controlling the separation in these vessels. Pneumatic Level Switch with External Float Cage  A Pneumatic Level Switch is a good option for two-phase separation, because it’s not

Examples of Oil Separation Systems

What is an Oil Separation System?

Oil Separation System Wells typically produce three elements: oil, gas, and water. Oil and gas producers use a combination of separation vessels, also called an “oil separation system,” to separate these elements. Three of the most common types of separation vessels are two-phase separators, three-phase separators, and heater treaters. Three-Phase Separator A three-phase separator separates

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

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

How to Operate the Kimray Treater Valve

What is a Treater Valve? The Kimray Treater Valve is a weight-operated throttling valve designed to hold liquid level in production vessels such as heater treaters, free water knockouts, and saltwater disposal systems. How the Treater Valve Works The Treater Valve actuates based on the hydrostatic pressure. Vessels, such as a heater treater, create a
