Furness Controls Pressure and Flow Measurement

Furness Controls Pressure and Flow Measurement Founded over 50 years ago, Furness Controls has consistently led in the field of ultra-low range differential pressure measurement. With a heritage based on pioneering work in the 1940’s, a time when technology, developed from low frequency microphones, made measurements down to 0.01pa possible to the present day using state of the art electronics, Furness Controls has remained a key player in the world of low differential pressure measurement.

About Furness Controls Pressure and Flow Measurement

From this early work, Furness Controls quickly developed a range of micromanometers, differential pressure transducers and transmitters followed by pressure decay leak detectors with un-paralleled sensitivity. The product range includes flow measuring devices such as pitot static tubes and laminar flow elements. These compliment the differential pressure instruments and add greatly to the performance of existing products thereby increasing the range of applications which can be solved.

Manufacturing Today

The Head Office and manufacturing facility is now sited in a modern purpose built state of the art building. From concept to design to manufacture everything is done on site to the highest standards.

The Furness Controls Calibration Laboratory (UKAS Laboratory 0580) is also based in Bexhill. This combined with the large research and development team, full assembly and machine shop capabilities ensures that whatever the requirement is, it can be handled quickly, efficiently and within our stringent quality standards.

Worldwide Sales

With worldwide sales and service facilities Furness Controls draws upon a huge pool of experience in giving the best advice to solve many applications. Many thousands of Furness Controls instruments are in use throughout the world, many working for years in harsh production environments.
