About TF Design

TF Design | Thermodynamics Fluids & Design | Green Energy

The Company

TF Design was founded in 1993 and is situated in the beautiful town of Stellenbosch. Stellenbosch University boosts this town to be one of the academic hubs of South Africa. This served as the breeding ground for the founders of TF Design to establish a company that mixes hands-on engineering, academic excellence and innovative ideas and design.

TF Design serves a wide variety of clients across the entire industry. We specialise in the fields of Heat Transfer and Thermodynamics, but, are also strongly involved in general Mechanical design.

Our typical projects usually involve the building of custom designed equipment for our clients. We complete the entire process - from the initial concept design, implementation of design, manufacturing and finally, on-site installation and commissioning. 

TF Design prides itself on always putting our clients first.
