Oxford Flow upgrades gasoline stress regulator to future proof fuel networks

IM-S regulator offers one hundred pc hydrogen readiness, 30% enhance to move capability and is extra compact for seamless retrofitting.
Oxford Flow, the flow management tools specialist for oil, fuel, industrial process and water industries, declares the launch of the latest model of its revolutionary fuel strain regulator, the IM-S valve, offering best-in-class resiliency, ongoing security of gas provide and seamless future-proofing for operators in the gasoline distribution, power generation, industrial gas and oil and fuel sectors.
Oxford Flow has integrated customer suggestions to create a superior model which is more compact and may be retrofitted seamlessly into gas distribution networks globally. The new IM-S regulator provides an elevated move capacity of up to 30%, and consolidates different key advantages, corresponding to hydrogen readiness, while providing unrivalled outcomes for business efficiency and reliability benchmarks.
digital pressure gauge is designed for as much as 100% hydrogen blending inside gasoline networks, comfortably exceeding the UK government’s goal for Britain’s fuel networks to be able to deliver 20% hydrogen mix by 2023. Furthermore, Oxford Flow has taken the revolutionary step of eliminating the diaphragm, the most common failure and wear point in conventional gas regulators, contributing to a minimum service interval upkeep interval of as a lot as ten years.
Oxford Flow has invested lots of of 1000’s of simulation hours and completed a stringent testing regime, above and beyond the current BS EN 334 requirements to guarantee that it is remaining one step ahead of evolving requirements. This has demonstrated that the IM-S can function with stability at something from zero to one hundred pc of working capacity.
Faris Churcher, Principal Applications Engineer at Oxford Flow stated, “The IM-S is the next era fuel pressure regulator that enhances the advantages of the IM valve predecessor. Engineered with industrial recommendations and suggestions on the forefront of its adaptation, this latest improvement improves maintenance and flexibility, whereas ensuring resiliency against future grid challenges.
“At Oxford Flow we believe in elevating the bar and bettering business standards to be the most effective that they will probably be, so it’s important that when we’re developing and advancing our technology, we’re thinking past the standards that exist now and setting higher, more stringent ones.”

The IM-S is built to be smaller and lighter, making the method of retrofitting into networks seamless with no impact on current systems and easy future upkeep. and is presently deployed in a quantity of networks, with over 10 years cumulative service throughout regulators already installed and no failures or unplanned maintenance.
Neil Poxon, CEO, Oxford Flow stated, “Since launch, the IM gasoline regulator has been considered one of our flagship products and represents a significant step forward for the valve trade. Now, the development, testing and launch of IM-S has given us the chance to enhance and perfect the regulator. We’re pleased with the service report of our current regulators within the subject and are delighted to have the ability to present our clients with the following step forward, the IM-S.”
