Who we are
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.
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.
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 UKAS laboratory 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.
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.

With a breadth of knowledge, fifty years’ experience, and a highly skilled team Furness Controls is in a unique position to solve any problems associated with the ultra-low measurement of pressure and flow.
Services We Offer
Repair & Calibration
Our main U.K. Service Centre is strategically placed in Tamworth Staffs, central to our customers in the United Kingdom and able to respond readily in support of our customers. Leak Detectors are Production Line Test Equipment, in use sometimes 24 hours a day and the need for quick service is paramount. Tamworth offers not only a repair and calibration facility, but a team of field service engineers, ensuring that production lines continue to run. Our staff at Tamworth work continuously to ensure that equipment is put back in service as quickly as possible.
Leak test equipment needs maintaining in a fit condition, preventing wherever possible a loss of production. Our Maintenance Contracts are designed to provide a "call out service" and regular maintenance visits, which can include calibration and preventive work, ensuring the equipment’s maximum availability.
Customer Training Courses
Additionally Furness Controls runs customer training courses to enable maintenance in the task of keeping production running.
Product Evaluation Service
Other facilities at Tamworth include a product evaluation service, recommending the correct system to test a wide variety of products using our 50 years experience in leak test applications.
