Research & Development

At Fluid Controls, we have 43 years of focus on design for customer needs and product performance. Our ethos established by our founder Dr. Moochhala and carried forward by Dr. Tansen Chaudhari since 2011.

At Fluid Controls, we use the concept of “Design of Six Sigma”, and our innovation and process-focused team constantly challenges our existing product portfolio and provides customized solutions for clients. We use a variety of design tools – from AutoCAD and Solidworks to ANSYS and draw upon our association with local institutions and colleges.

As a validation of our work in research and development, Fluid Controls today is an approved “In-House R&D Centre” by the Department of Scientific & lndustrual Research (DSIR), Government of India.

Product Development Process

1. Analytical Formulations:

Using the basic laws of physics and hydraulics, we use analytical formulas, wherever applicable, for a basic design formulation. This helps us design the product from First Principles. Our team refers to the latest published papers and standards during the process.

2. 3D & 2D Modelling:

After our calculations, we create options through Solid Models via 2D and 3D design packages which:

  • Resolve physical conflicts and fine-tune the product
  • Help us drive the cost savings opportunities
  • Enable new developments to be finalised with speed and detailing

3. Finite Element Modelling & Analysis:

The developed design is validated virtually using the latest design and analysis methodology – Finite Element Analysis (FEA).

  • The solid model is first meshed, applied with a suitable material model and subjected to appropriate boundary conditions and solved using Solid-WORKS & ANSYS
  • Graphical output helps compare the Stresses/Strains with material parameters.

This virtual validation is iterated until a product is designed and validated that can be manufactured.

4. Manufacturing:

Once the virtual validation is complete, the models are then validated by our manufacturing experts, after which manufacturing drawings are prepared. Samples are machined on our in-house CNC machines to the highest quality standards.

5. Final Testing:

With our belief that “seeing is believing”, the manufactured product is then taken to our testing center. A range of performance tests are conducted to validate performance parameters. Once the testing is successful, the newly designed product is released.



In the wake of the COVID-19 situation, Fluid Controls has invoked our Business Continuity Plan (BCP) and have instituted steps to protect our staff, clients and our wider community from the risk of infection.

Our sales office has moved to “Work-From-Home” until 31 March 2020 and we have stopped all visits to customers and are encouraging the use of telecons / video conferencing / emails.
