IP-K pressure control valve

Introduction

Complete with integrated handles, feet and quick-fit connections the Oxford Flow range of IP-K pressure reducing valves (PRVs) are ideal for mobile hydrant service.

Overview

They enable operators to quickly and accurately control pressure from hydrants into more sensitive systems.

The units utilise the patented IP Series PRV range.

Lightweight construction in Acetal resin (WRAS approved) significantly reduces weight. All units weigh less than 25 kg; the single-person manual handling limit.

Value proposition
Feature:Compact and light weight polymer valve body.
Benefit:Can be easily installed in smaller chambers and retrofitted in existing chambers with limited space.
Value proposition:Offers the ability to extend pressure management to more of the network without disruptive, additional construction and CAPEX.
Feature:Does not have a diaphragm – one of the leading causes of leakage in networks.
Benefit:Inherently more reliable design, with minimal moving parts susceptible to failure.
Value proposition:Reduces maintenance OPEX and the overall cost of ownership.
Feature:Unique design that can operate across a wide flow range from drip tight closed to fully open without instability.
Benefit:Tolerates a variety of operational and hydraulic challenges across the water network such as fire flows.
Value proposition:Minimises the need to resize valves as network flow rates and hydraulic conditions change, improves reliability and reduces operational downtime.
Valve variations

IP valve

  • The IP in a polymer wafer body that can be installed between PN10/PN16 or ANSI150 flanges.

IP-T valve

  • For water applications, the IP-T is configured for tank level control applications and the lightweight polymer construction uses POM-C.
  • The axial flow design eliminates the main diaphragm to maximise reliability and reduce maintenance costs.

IP-W valve

  • The IP-W Series pressure regulator range offers excellent pressure control for liquid distribution and transmission applications.
  • The patented, compact construction significantly reduces weight and the need for expensive lifting equipment during installation and maintenance.

IP-X valve

  • The IP-X offers the accuracy, performance, and reliability of our IP design in a flanged stainless steel or epoxy coated carbon steel body for more demanding applications.
  • IP-X is available in PN10, PN16 or PN 25 flanges.
