Impact


Diverse application

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. 

Our strengths



Efficiency of delivery
For high-value formulations and highly cost-constrained appliances, efficiency is everything. We have created a high efficacy inhaler using the minimal quantity of drug and finely controlled particle size distribution in a consumer aerosol to meet changing regulations.
End product quality
The consumer experience is not only influenced by formulation but also delivery – the droplet size, foam bubble size and texture. Our systematic, science-led approach and deep expertise consistently deliver dramatic improvements in quality despite tight technical and cost constraints.
New products
We have established expertise enabling new products and product categories, creating new applications for new technology. Examples include functional packaging for a new type of aerosol and putting a fresh spin on frozen cocktail dispense with a beer-style font.

Experience


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
 

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!

Analytical laboratories
 

Analytical labs

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.
