In this first episode of the Stuff You Should Know about Oil and Gas Podcast, Kyle Andrews, Product Applications Trainer at Kimray, explains control valve fail positions. Topics include: What is a valve fail position? How does fail position affect operation of oil and gas separators and other production vessels? How should you set up a back pressure valve to fail? How should a pressure reducing regulator fail? At the 8:10 mark, we discuss converting a High Pressure Control Valve from fail open to fail closed.
