Kimray high-pressure Control Valves increase protection from erosion
Kimray has announced the release of a new product designed to increase uptime for oil and gas producers, especially in erosive applications.
The T-Body High Pressure Control Valve is designed with a strategically placed hardened wear plug, which can be easily inspected and replaced as needed. This feature reduces the potential for valve bodies themselves to be compromised, which can cause a loss of production fluid as well as safety and environmental hazards.
“We are really excited about what this valve is going to do for our partners in the oil and gas industry,” said Brian Levings, product manager with Kimray. “Producers are dealing with extremely high volumes of production that include sand and other elements that can really beat up a valve. This new option will give them protection against these abrasives in their control valves and allow them to produce oil and gas more efficiently.”
The valve can also be configured in through-body or angle-body orientation, giving producers increased inventory control.
The T-Body High Pressure Control Valve is now available through Kimray’s regional Sales and Service Stores, and authorized distributor locations.
