Preventing "Freezing" of Latching Valves in Extreme Cold Conditions

Latching valves, which control the open and closed states of plunger lift systems used in shale drilling for natural gas, can be the cause of tremendous anxiety and great expense for energy producers if they fail to perform to expectation. This articles identifies the causes of failure and provides insight to design elements that ensure longevity and high performance: Gems sensors work in a variety of Oil and Gas applications such as:

  • Controlling Plunger Lift Systems
  • Cost of Malfunctioning Valves
  • Anatomy of a Latching Valve
  • Causes of Valve Failure in Extreme Cold Conditions
  • Valve Performance with Minimal Access to Power
