Valve zero leakage technology has attracted much attention in the global crack down of methane emissions.


Global Action to Reduce Methane Emissions. In November 2021, nearly 90 countries have committed to the Global Methane Pledge, an initiative to reduce global methane emissions by at least 30 per cent to 2030. As we know the largest source of industrial emissions of methane, all eyes will focus on the oil and gas industry to deliver, making it that all operators take urgent steps to eliminate fugitive emissions, effectively, reliably and as soon as possible. Therefore as one of the important components of the petrochemical control system the ball valve will be delivered Its weight, its safety performance and new technologies have attracted much attention. A recent innovation by Oxford University professor Thomas Povey has a simple solution to the problem of valve leakage:using the principles of a jet engine to solve the pressure regulating valve. Instead of an industry standard flexible diaphragm, the valve designed by Povey uses a hydraulic piston integrated into the valve body to perform operation. The secret to the design's success is its simplicity, yet achieving dramatic improvements in performance and reliability benchmarks. By removing the diaphragm and associated elastomer, Povey has significantly reduced fatigue, erosion and embrittlement issues, and addressed stress The Achilles heel of the regulating valve. Recognizing the potential benefits of this innovative approach to valve technology, Oxford Flow aims to commercialize the technology for wider application.
