AGI Industries, an International Fluid and Gas Handling equipment distributor and their manufacturing division, Hydroplex, offer nearly 50 years of teamwork to bring leading-edge solutions to a worldwide customer base. The Hydroplex Hydra Line of ¼ Turn, Multi-orifice Field Repairable Throttling Valves manually or electrically actuated and stocked by AGI Industries for the Permian Basin, Delaware Basin and Eagle Ford Shale areas solve many common problems that users experience with other Choke or Throttling Valves.
Whether you are stimulating an older reservoir through CO2 injection, Waterflood, or Gas Lift to increase oil production or Plunger Lift (for gas production), the Hydroplex Hydra series offers precise control, longer life, accuracy, and repeatability while providing special features not offered by other manufacturers, such as a chemical injection port, wear sleeves and multi-stage pressure drops through the valve.
If you wish to convert your old pneumatically-actuated separator valves to electric actuation for your belly dump or inlet and outlet pressure control functions on your Two or Three Phase Separator, the Hydroplex Hydra HC or Minimax series’ offer direct electrically actuated valve solutions without the hassle of buying mounting brackets and couplings. The Minimax offers multiple discharge port options in the same valve. All Hydroplex valves are field repairable.
If you operate horizontal surface pumps (H Pumps) on your Saltwater Disposal Wells you should look at the HydraMax Throttling Valve. During the startup of an H Pump on a disposal well it is necessary to create and hold back-pressure to keep the pump at a beneficial area of its performance curve. The HydraMax throttles the pump discharge protecting it from damage. In a high-pressure injection well, the HydraMax offers an optional three stage pressure drop across the valve preventing cavitation, pump damage and excess noise.
