IM-C gas regulator

Oxford Flow’s IM-C gas regulator is the top-entry gas regulator variant in the Oxford Flow IM series. The regulator is flanged and the top-entry design enables easy in-line servicing.

Introduction

The IM-C Series range offers excellent pressure control for gas distribution and transmission applications.

Overview

The innovative cartridge insert design utilises the patented Oxford Flow piston control system to deliver world class pressure management in an easily accessible body for inline servicing.

The IM-C series inserts into a range of top-entry regulator bodies. The unique design employs a single, piston instead of a diaphragm, increasing reliability and reducing maintenance costs.

Value proposition
Feature:Does not require a diaphragm – the leading cause of instability in regulators.
Benefit:Because the piston and pilot are primary sensors, it is inherently more stable and responsive at a wider range of flowrates.
Value proposition:Because the IM can be used across a wider range of flows, utilities can optimise piping, save money and provide more stable gas delivery to end-users.
Feature:Does not utilise an external stem — a primary source of methane emissions.
Benefit:Does not require stem packing and frequent maintenance to meet emissions requirements.
Value proposition:Eliminates a frequent source of emissions, and reduces maintenance OPEX.
Feature:Minimal internal components and a single moving part, compared to conventional regulators.
Benefit:This reduces mechanical wear and simplifies maintenance.
Value proposition:Reduced mechanical wear increases operating life, and fewer parts means less downtime for and lower cost of repairs.
