    What is a Choke Valve?

    Choke Valves are industrial valves used to control flow rate and reduce pressure so it is regulated further downstream. A Choke Valve restricts and regulates a desired flow rate and is mainly used in heavy industrial applications, especially above and below surface high-pressure applications.

    How does a Choke Valve work?

    Choke Valves are specifically designed for high-pressure scenarios such as in the oil and gas industry in wellhead applications for both above and below-surface applications. The primary purpose of Choke Valves is to dictate the desired flow rate. Choke Valves allow fluid through a very small opening which is specifically designed to kill reservoir pressure while being able to regulate well production.

    What are the different types of Choke Valves?

    You’ll need to choose specific Choke Valves dependent on the application you are using them for. Choke Valves are classified into two groups: Regulating Choke Valves and Non-Regulating Choke Valves.

    • Regulating Choke Valves act within applications as flow control valves that are capable of maintaining a steady flow rate. These are automatic valves that are electronically controlled to open and close.
    • Non-Regulating Choke Valves act as an “on-off valve”. They are more simplistic as they do not regulate or control the flow of the media. These Choke Valves can also be grouped into the following types:

    Needle and Seat Choke Valves – which have a positive choke and a cone-shaped plug, a rising stem and a hand wheel for operation.

    Plug and Cage Choke Valves – these are complex designs with ported cages to provide a symbiotic and complementary combination of both flow and control capacity.

    Do you require assistance to buy the right Choke Valve for your business? Contact a Winnellie Valves and Process valve expert today so they can help guide you to choosing the right valve for your application. Did you know that we also provide training on valve and process applications? Find out more about our training services.

    What are typical uses of Choke Valves?

    Choke Valves are used in severe service applications and are commonly used in the oil and gas industry because of their ability to kill reservoir pressure and maintain steady pressure levels.

    They’re used for production well heads, gas reinjection, FPSO loading vessels, hydraulic fracturing and any other related high-pressure scenarios that require the control or isolation of high pressure fluid or gases with potential solids. If you are unsure if a Choke Valve is right for you, contact a valve expert today.

    How long does a Choke Valve last?

    There are a few different types and sizes of Choke Valves available so it’s best to get in touch with a valve specialist so you can ensure you are getting the right product for your application. For more information on what type of Choke Valve you require and tips on how to maintain your valves, contact a Winnellie Valves and Process expert today.
