Prevent Control Valve Body Replacement with the T-Body HPCV

With the increased use of proppant in well completions, control valve body replacement has become a regular requirement for oil and gas producers.

Erosive production fluid causes equipment damage and can lead to environmental and safety issues as well as costly downtime.

High Pressure Control Valves bear the brunt of this erosion, and valve bodies can eventually be compromised

Prevent Control Valve Body Replacement with the T-Body HPCV

The T-Body High Pressure Control Valve is designed specifically for the erosive production conditions of today's oilfield.

With regular maintenance, the T-Body provides long-lasting control of high-pressure processes and allows you to minimize control valve body replacement.

There are 4 key features that make this valve effective:

  • Replaceable Wear Plug
  • Configurable Body 
  • Field-Reversible Top Works 
  • Electric or Pneumatic Actuation 

Replaceable Wear Plug 

The key feature of the T-Body valve is the replaceable wear plug. This plug is designed to absorb the force of sand and other erosive materials that wear away and damage HPCVs.

With the T-Body, you can easily examine this sacrificial piece and replace it without taking the valve out of line. This is a much more low-cost option than replacing the entire valve body.  

Configurable Body 

Because of the T-Body design, this valve can also be quickly converted from through-body to angle-body configuration. This means you can purchase one valve rather than two to reduce the overall amount of inventory needed for your operation.

Field-Reversible Top Works 

With the pneumatic version of the T-Body, you can convert the topworks in the field from fail-closed to fail-open operation.  

Electric or Pneumatic Actuation 

The T-Body High Pressure Control Valve comes standard for pneumatic actuation. You can also pair it with one of our electric actuators to reap benefits of electric control: zero-emission operation and remote control. 

Applications

The T-Body High Pressure Control Valve is ideal for liquid dump, plunger lift, gas lift, flowback, or any other control application where erosive conditions exist.

It's currently available in 2" NPT and configurable with the full line of trim options from Kimray's Stem-Guided High Pressure Control Valves.
