Pressure reducing valves (PRV’s) are a valuable asset to minimise leakage and control pressure in a pipeline network. Water supply pressure reduction has the potential to reduce consumption and non-revenue water loss due to leakage, assist with burst incidents, water hammering and extend the lifecycle of the asset. Through an improved understanding of operational characteristics of the network, control strategies, technologies and solutions are available to remove complexity, reduce cost and increase reliability.
Oxford Flow’s IP and IMW Series are a unique patented range of pilot-operated wafer-type pressure reducing valves (PRVs) developed specifically for water applications. Features include fast response, low noise generation, corrosion and cavitation resistant. The polymer valves are compact, stable down to zero flow rate and significantly reduced in size and weight to maximise reliability and reduce maintenance costs. The IP and IMW Series valves offer pilot-controlled accuracy and can also can be integrated with actuated systems in smarter networks to calm networks and reduce leakage.
Oxford Flow’s range of Kari-Flow pressure reducing valves (PRVs) are ideal for mobile hydrant service. Features include minimum maintenance, corrosion and cavitation resistant, reliable, robust design and their lightweight construction in Acetal resin makes them truly mobile. Their integrated handles, feet and quick fit connections, enable operators to quickly and accurately control pressure from hydrants into more sensitive systems with confidence.
