Oxford Flow upgrades fuel strain regulator to future proof gas networks

IM-S regulator presents 100% hydrogen readiness, 30% enhance to move capability and is extra compact for seamless retrofitting.
Oxford Flow, the flow management gear specialist for oil, fuel, industrial course of and water industries, declares the launch of the newest version of its revolutionary fuel pressure regulator, the IM-S valve, providing best-in-class resiliency, ongoing safety of gasoline supply and seamless future-proofing for operators in the gasoline distribution, energy technology, industrial gas and oil and gas sectors.
Oxford Flow has built-in customer suggestions to create a superior mannequin which is extra compact and can be retrofitted seamlessly into gasoline distribution networks globally. The new IM-S regulator offers an elevated move capacity of up to 30%, and consolidates different key advantages, similar to hydrogen readiness, while offering unrivalled outcomes for industry efficiency and reliability benchmarks.
The valve is designed for up to one hundred pc hydrogen mixing inside fuel networks, comfortably exceeding the UK government’s target for Britain’s fuel networks to be ready to deliver 20% hydrogen blend by 2023. Furthermore, Banned has taken the revolutionary step of eliminating the diaphragm, the commonest failure and wear point in conventional gasoline regulators, contributing to a minimum service interval maintenance interval of as much as ten years.
Oxford Flow has invested lots of of 1000’s of simulation hours and accomplished a stringent testing regime, above and beyond the current BS EN 334 requirements to make certain that it is remaining one step forward of evolving requirements. This has demonstrated that the IM-S can function with stability at something from zero to one hundred pc of operating capability.
Faris Churcher, Principal Applications Engineer at Oxford Flow said, “The IM-S is the following era fuel stress regulator that enhances the benefits of the IM valve predecessor. Engineered with industrial suggestions and feedback on the forefront of its adaptation, this latest improvement improves maintenance and versatility, whereas making certain resiliency against future grid challenges.
“At Oxford Flow we believe in elevating the bar and improving trade standards to be one of the best that they’ll possibly be, so it’s essential that when we’re growing and advancing our technology, we’re pondering beyond the standards that exist now and setting greater, more stringent ones.”
The IM-S is built to be smaller and lighter, making the process of retrofitting into networks seamless with no impact on current systems and simple future maintenance. and is presently deployed in several networks, with over 10 years cumulative service throughout regulators already installed and no failures or unplanned upkeep.
Neil Poxon, CEO, Oxford Flow stated, “Since launch, the IM fuel regulator has been considered one of our flagship products and represents a significant step forward for the valve business. Now, the event, testing and launch of IM-S has given us the chance to enhance and ideal the regulator. We’re happy with the service report of our present regulators within the area and are delighted to be able to present our clients with the subsequent step ahead, the IM-S.”
