Optimizing Natural Flow

Most fluid-handling devices (fans, mixers, pumps, turbines, propellers), as well as those that move through fluids (boat hulls and aircraft fuselages) face significant limitations, such as drag resistance, low output, inefficient energy usage, excessive noise, or component wear. The Streamlining Principle employs natural flow geometries to reduce these limitations and provide the following benefits:

  • Increased Efficiency: Decreased noise, increased output, decreased power usage

  • Optimized Flow Pattern: Drag reduction, controlled directional thrust/flow, low shear/cavitation

  • Decreased Manufacturing and Maintenance Cost: Optimized material usage, reduced motor size, increased structural integrity

Our R&D team studies the fundamental mathematics and fluid dynamics underlying the Streamlining Principle using both CFD numerical methods and scientific analysis. We also use in-house and external experimental testing by independent research facilities to validate our methods and ensure that performance is fully optimized.  We then introduce streamlining geometries for targeted fluid-handling applications.
