Today’s gas field environment means higher wellhead pressures with aggressive fluids with entrained sand and other solid particles. A conventional single stage choke valve is not suitable for this kind of severe service. The need to maintain production rates means that frequent choke repair or replacement is no longer acceptable. IMI CCI has responded to this need by developing the world’s first true severe service choke valve. IMI CCI has been solving severe service control valve problems in the oil and gas industry for over 30 years. The IMI CCI severe service choke uses a combination of proven DRAG® velocity control technology and the best grades of tungsten carbide material used in the industry to provide long trim life and precise process control.
Solid tungsten carbide plug, seat and disk stack eliminates erosion and gallingand extends performance life for maximum productivity
Large flow passages to easily handle solids means continued reliable performance
Multi-step letdown to control velocity, erosion, noise, and vibration for minimumdown time and safety
Increased rangeability due to a longer stroke means superior performance and control
Dual scrapers prevent solids from entering sealing areas for reduced maintenance
Venturi seat transition assures smooth flow into valve outlet and piping for problems downstream
Easy maintenance, quick-change trim means no trim parts are welded or screwedinto the body
One choke body can handle changing wellhead conditions by swapping trim forless down time
Up to 6 stages of DRAG® velocity control (with total velocity control trim disk stack)
All trim seals are PTFE. PTFE is explosive decompression resistant
