Reuben d'Orton-Gibson

Design Engineer

Reuben has 4 years experience of pump design and operation, encompassing the certification of new p[ump designs, optimising components for weight and stress, innovating new pump coupling designs and undertaking general engineering design and detailing.

In the last 3 years Reuben has been working in the field of new product development for filtration systems. This has required iterative design improvements, prototyping and 3D printing, laboratory testing, and proof of concept testing. As a result Reuben has a great understanding of product development and improving TRLs.
