We design and develop dispense technologies for a huge variety of applications, from medical and cosmetic devices to oil and gas, agriculture and beverage systems.
Our scientists and engineers exploit the potential of physics and chemistry to deliver the desired fluid characteristics, no matter how challenging the specification.
Decades of excellence
We have managed challenging dispense projects for a diverse range of clients over many decades, developing a series of breakthrough products along the way.
Our multidisciplinary approach draws in our fluidics and microfluidics engineers, physicists, chemists, systems engineers and innovation facilitators.
We excel at challenging convention, using a combination of analysis, modelling and practical testing to understand and optimise complex systems, leading to rapid development of novel technologies.
Tech, tools & facilities
Food & beverage lab
Specifically set up to meet the unique requirements of developing food- and beverage-safe systems, our dedicated lab means we have the necessary procedures and equipment in place to design and test new products in-house. Quantitative and scientific testing is fundamental to our science-led innovation approach, but ultimately taste tests are always needed. This is our only lab where the consumption of food and drink is not just allowed but essential!
Our laboratories provide high accuracy measurement and analysis for the wide range of projects we undertake. Specialist equipment includes a gas chromatography mass spectrometer (GCMS), a Matersizer particle size analyser, a Spraytec laser diffraction droplet size analyser, high-speed and thermal imaging cameras and rapid-development custom image analysis software.
Eco-friendly spray technology
Vinfusion is a personalised wine blending system that allows the user to design their perfect wine. Vinfusion also makes wine recommendations based on the user’s tastes while collecting valuable market intelligence for the vendor.
