Superior performance and length of life

Baker Hughes offers two high-performance choke product lines—“sleeve” design valves for critical service applications and “plug” design valves for moderate to severe applications. They are ideal for high-pressure drops, high-flowing velocities, corrosive fluids, H2S, CO2, low temperatures, steam injection, and wells with heavy erosion potential. Every choke valve features our unique cage trim (nozzle) design that allows the valve to dissipate rather than absorb destructive energy. By containing the energy within the nozzle, our valves mitigate possible erosion damage to the valve body and internal components, resulting in long life and high performance.
