Oxford Flow, flow control equipment specialist for oil, gas, industrial process and water industries, has been awarded the Albert Woelfel Best Mechanical Engineering Achievement award by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) at OTC (Houston, US) for its ES axial flow valve.
The Woelfel BMEA Award recognises a product, device, or system which best reflects innovation or practical use of mechanical engineering in solving problems, improving design, or maximising performance. Chosen by an executive committee, Oxford Flow is the first company to win the award since 2019.
The company’s ES axial flow valve, which has been designed with no mechanical actuator, stem or drive train, is proven to eliminate fugitive emissions, significantly increase reliability, and is considerably smaller and lighter than existing valves on the market.
The ES valve is certified to ISO 15848-1 Class A and provides notable assurances of leak elimination in comparison to the standard Class B certification, which is typically seen across the industry.
