Gas pressure regulator upgraded to future-proof gas networks

04 July 2022

Oxford Flow has launched the latest version of its gas pressure regulator, the IM-S valve aimed at operators in the gas distribution, power generation, industrial gas and oil and gas sectors.

Oxford Flow has integrated customer feedback to create a model which is more compact and can be retrofitted seamlessly into gas distribution networks globally. 

The new IM-S regulator offers an increased flow capacity of up to 30%, and consolidates other key advantages, such as hydrogen readiness, while offering unrivalled results for industry performance and reliability benchmarks.  

The valve is designed for up to 100% hydrogen blending within gas networks, comfortably exceeding the UK government's target for Britain's gas networks to be ready to deliver 20% hydrogen blend by 2023. 

Oxford Flow has eliminated the diaphragm, the most common failure and wear point in conventional gas regulators, contributing to a minimum service interval maintenance interval of up to ten years.  
The company has completed hundreds of thousands of simulation hours and completed a stringent testing regime, above and beyond the current BS EN 334 requirements to ensure that it remains one step ahead of evolving standards. This has demonstrated that the IM-S can operate with stability at anything from zero to 100% of operating capacity.  
The IM-S is built to be smaller and lighter, making the process of retrofitting into networks seamless, with no impact on existing systems and simple future maintenance.
