Oil and gas manufacturing company, Kimray, Inc. recently donated one of its 2" SGT Back Pressure Regulator Valves to Fletcher Technical Community College's new Integrated Production Technologies (IPT) Program. The valve will be used to train students in instrumentation, specifically the importance of maintaining constant gas or air pressure on a system.

"We at Kimray gratefully appreciated the opportunity to be a part of the new IPT program. This is a much needed educational tool for the oil and gas production industry. It will help all from the entry level personnel to the seasoned supervisors," said Doug Boudreaux of Kimray.

 "Understanding the components and functionality of the equipment used in the industry is critical to educating our students," commented Fletcher's Chancellor Travis Lavigne. "We appreciate Kimray's generosity in supporting our new program and assisting us in providing quality education opportunities to our students."
