Oxford Flow

Oxford Flow designs and manufactures innovative pressure control equipment using technology developed at the University of Oxford.

Inspiration came to Professor Povey during research into jet turbines. Increasingly frustrated that market-leading pressure regulators couldn’t meet the needs of his R&D, he decided to design his own. The resulting technology set new benchmarks for performance and sustainability.
