Thermofluidics aspires to be one of the world's most innovative High Tech businesses offering an exciting new range of pumping technologies to Businesses
and End Users
that is both cost effective and environmentally sustainable
Our world class expertise lies with "Thermofluidic-Oscillators" - devices that use heat to generate fluid motion with no, or very few moving parts, making them cheap to operate and easy to maintain.
Our core technology
is a device known as a Non-Inertive-Feedback Thermofluidic Engine (NIFTE), the result of 10 years of Research and Development in the Universities of Cambridge
NIFTE devices can convert low-temperature heat into powerful fluid oscillations with greater efficiency than any known predecessors, using cheap materials and production processes. They are particularly well suited to pumping water, in a wide range of applications
where heat is available as a waste product, or from solar thermal (hot water) collectors. They are also well suited to applications in which simultaneous heating and pumping are required.

Agricultural irrigation, smallholder farming and drinking water access projects are all ideal applications for our technologies. We also have an innovative Hydraulic Ram
technology under development that is designed to extract water from a depth of 100m in a single step.
We believe our award winning
technologies will play an important role in helping to solve some of the greatest problems we face during the 21st century.
