Chemical Injection Rate Control Valves

IRCVs can be effective in deepwater. Successful application requires a systems approach and incorporation of lessons learned. The conventional approach to injection of production chemicals is to use a separate pump for each injection point. For topsides injection at low to moderate pressures these systems are small and inexpensive. But in deepwater they can be large, heavy and expensive. A common alternative is to use distributed delivery systems featuring Injection Rate Control Valves (IRCVs) to control flow to individual locations. IRCV systems are cheaper, lighter, smaller and more flexible.
