Experts gather at Oxford Flow’s Pressure Talks
Senior figures in the utilities, oil & gas and process industries gathered in Oxford earlier this month, as Oxford Flow held its inaugural Pressure Talks symposium.
Designed as a forum for leaders in the area of process, operational, engineering, risk and asset management for pressure and flow control management, the event featured a number of talks from Oxford Flow’s experts, including:
Professor Tom Povey
The inventor of Oxford Flow’s unique piston-led system and renowned Professor of Engineering Science at the University of Oxford gave an overview of the world-class research being undertaken at the Osney Thermo-Fluid Laboratories, discussing advancements in areas such as gas dynamics, heat transfer, applied fluid dynamics and, of course, innovative pressure and flow regulators.
An expert in the industry, Christopher provided an insight into the key challenges facing the water, oil & gas and processing industries at present. Christopher also discussed how Oxford Flow’s innovations in flow control management can help these sectors improve profitability and performance in the 21st century.
Dr Matt Collins and Dr Ben Hall
Engineering specialists, Dr Matt Collins and Dr Ben Hall shared the latest developments in the mathematical modelling of gas and liquid flow regulators and computational flow dynamics and discussed the wider impacts these innovations are going to have on the industry.
As part of the event, Oxford Flow’s guests were also treated to a rare opportunity to tour the Osney Thermo-Fluid Laboratories, where they were able to see first-hand the latest developments in jet propulsion, space technology and valve design.
Speaking after the event, Christopher Leonard, BD Director, said: “This event was a great opportunity to share our innovations with industry leaders and show just how the technology we’re developing can be practically applied.
“Flow regulation is a central part of performance in so many industries so our model – which essentially enables businesses to improve performance and reliability while driving down cost –was very well received.”
