In March of this year, the Government introduced the Ventilator Challenge UK Consortium, an initiative calling on leading automotive and engineering companies to support the NHS by building much needed ventilators. MPB Industries Ltd stepped up to the challenge.
Staff worked shifts through day and night, six days a week, for over four months and manufactured a total of 30,000 anaesthetic flow tubes, which form an integral part of the fully assembled ventilator machines.
We’re proud to announce that the consortium assembled a total of 11,683 ventilators for COVID-19 patients.
MPB Industries also offer an excellent contract service for design, assembly, test and calibration of original, or OEM instrument manufacture. This service includes state of the art manufacturing facilities and construction, testing and finishing to customers' specifications.
Formed in 1986, MPB Industries supplies process control instrumentation throughout the world and has found successful applications in power generation, gas and oil production, human medical anaesthesia, aviation, pharmaceutical, water treatment, pollution control, scientific analysis, educational and many other areas.
Major clients include Siemens, Rolls-Royce, BAE Systems, Edwards, BP and Shell.

The MPB Long Series 1200 Flowmeter has been designed where the most accurate flow measurements are required, giving a high resolution, “free float” operation, with flow rates as low as 50cc/min Air and Water. Normally front of panel mounted, but can be rear of panel mounted and supplied complete with bezel mounting kit. A circular mounting base is also available with adjustable feet if required. The Long Series 1200 Flowmeter will give an instantaneous flow rate of virtually any process gas or liquid The Long Series 1200 Flowmeter can be supplied with either nickel plated brass, anodised aluminium alloy or stainless steel connections. These can be supplied with straight through, or rear facing connections, with or without integral control valves.
The MPB Series 650 range of Variable Area Flowmeters are suitable for measuring the instantaneous flow rate of virtually any process liquid or gas. The principle of operation of the variable area flowmeter is quite simple:- The height attained by the float in its tapered flow tube is directly related to a calibrated scale. The MPB Series 650 flowmeter has rear facing connections. The flowmeter can be supplied for insert mounting into a panel cutout or surface mounting.
1240S Dual Tube Variable Area Flowmeter is series of dual tube flowmeter assemblies covering a wide range of gases and liquids. Employed where space is of a premium, or a really neat "double tube" application is required.
The 640S Dual Tube Variable Area Flowmeter is the smallest version dual tube arrangement we offer, ideal where mounting space is of a premium. The 1040S Dual Tube VA Flowmeter is the larger version which offers a better scale resolution.
Where a wide turndown ratio is required, the Series 1241S Dual Tube Cascade Variable Area Flowmeter can cascade two flow tubes to give accurate readings with a 100:1 turndown.
Series F6000 Metal Tube Variable Area Flowmeter - a useful range of metal tube VA flowmeters which can be supplied with transmitters, alarms, flanged, or screwed connections. 3/4", 1", 2" and 3" versions available.
Series TX600 Transmitting Variable Area Flowmeter with 4-20mA output suitable for high pressure and corrosive applications. 3/4", 1", 2" and 3" versions available in 316 stainless steel with screwed or flanged connections certified to EExia IIC T6.
