Who we are

Reimagining valve technology

At Oxford Flow, we engineer and manufacture the world’s most revolutionary valves and regulators. Leveraging our world-class capabilities in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and decades of experience in valve design and manufacturing, Oxford Flow is at the forefront of zero emissions and low maintenance valve technology.

Award winning technology

Oxford Flow is pioneering zero emission valve technology, recognised through a commendation by the judges of the  ADNOC Group Decarbonization Technology Challenge at COP28 UAE for producing control and isolation valves that eliminate fugitive emissions.

The ES Stemless Valve has also won the highly acclaimed Best Mechanical Engineering Achievement Award from the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME)

Simple design

With no diaphragm, stem, seal or external mechanical actuator, our valves and regulators eliminate the most common points of failure, leakage and emissions. This significantly reduces costs and maintenance as well as valve size and weight.

Managing Methane and Fugtive Emissions

Fugitive emissions, the unintended release of harmful gases into the atmosphere, are estimated to total 3.6 trillion cubic feet of methane per year. Sixty percent of industrial fugitive emissions can be attributed to valves. Methane is 28 times more potent than CO2 as a greenhouse gas and represents a product loss of $30 billion annually. Outdated valve designs and frequent maintenance exacerbate this issue, but Oxford Flow offers a solution. With over 90% of these valve emissions coming from stem packing leaks, the revolutionary ES Stemless Valve design doesn’t just reduce emissions; it eliminates them

Fuels of the Future

With gas heating and industrial processes currently accounting for 37% of all UK CO2 emissions, transitioning away from traditional fossil fuels has never been more important. According to the National Grid, a shift to hydrogen is crucial for reducing pollution, and a blend of just 20% could save 6 million tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. However, hydrogen poses operational challenges for much of the existing infrastructure, hindering the full rollout of new fuels. Oxford Flow has addressed this issue by designing the IM-S in hydrogen-compatible stainless steel, enabling operators to deploy new low-emission technologies safely and effectively across their networks
