Who we are
Reimagining valve technology
In an industry that has been more focused on incremental improvements than true innovation, we are reimagining valves for the energy, water, and industrial sectors. Our axial flow valves offer superior performance and higher reliability.
Who we are
Disrupting the industry
The Oxford Flow family of axial valves and regulators are game-changing. By eliminating the mechanical drive train, we have eliminated emissions, reduced cost, and improved performance.
Who we are
We have pioneered the world’s first 100% polymer valve body for water pressure regulation. Our polymer water pressure regulator offers significantly reduced size and weight, and lower total cost of ownership while improving performance.
Primary components — and a single moving part.
With no diaphragm, stem, seal or external mechanical actuator, our flow 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.
Waste Less Water
The world is facing an unprecedented water crisis. 46bn liters of drinking water are currently lost each day through leakage and 40% of the global population is affected by water scarcity. With global demand set to increase by 50% in 2050 it is critical that we manage leakage to prevent water loss. Pressure managemnt is the single most effective way to reduce leakage but operators are currently limited to where they can deploy valves due to outdated technology. The IP series is compact enough to be installed in the most challenging locations and in areas where flow rates are too low for traditional valves. Combined with our cutting edge Intelligent System, leakage can be prevented proactively across an entire network.
Fugitive emissions – the unintended release of harmful gasses into the atmosphere – are estimated to total 3.6 trillion cubic feet of methane per year. Of this, 51% of emissions can be contributed to valves. Methane is 28x more potent than CO2 as a greenhouse gas and represents a product loss of $30bn annually. Outdated valve design and frequent maintenance are exacerbating this issue and Oxford Flow has the solution. The revolutionary ES Series design doesn‘t just reduce emissions, it eliminates them. The unique stem-free innovation from Oxford Flow can help operators make huge reductions to their environmental footprint.
Fuels of the Future
With gas heating and industrial processes currently accounting for 37% of all UK CO2 emissions, it has never been more important to transition away from traditional fossil fuels. According to the National Grid, a move to hydrogen is key to reducing pollution, and a blend of just 20% could save 6m tonnes of CO2 emissions per year. However, hyrdogen poses operational issues to much of the existing infrastructure, preventing the full rollout of new fuels. Oxford Flow has designed the IM in hydrogen compatible stainless steel allowing operators to deploy new low emission technologies safely and effectively across their networks.
