Design fluid systems for the future that last for the future.
The last few decades have seen amazing advances in materials and technologies. However, many homeowners are still frustrated with their furnace, plumbing, kitchen appliances and other fluid system products. High quality, stainless steel fluid system components are commonly used in an industrial setting...but what could be possible if we brought these components to the consumer market?
Consumer fluid systems of tomorrow could:
The catch? Most consumers will only go to the trouble of replacing old technology with new technology if the new product is in some way dramatically better than the old…if it will save them enough money in one to five years to pay for the upfront costs…and if they can trust that they will not be replacing it over again in a few years.
What are fluid systems? Fluid systems heat, cool, pressurize, purify, produce energy, or in some other way manage a liquid or gas using fluidic components such as (but not limited to) valves, tubing, filters, regulators, and fittings.
We need your help in identifying products in the home that could be improved or created using a simple assembly of fluid system components. Read the complete Challenge Guidelines...
This challenge is of interest to an international manufacturer and distributor of industrial-grade, stainless steel fluid system components.
