About Cambustion


Cambustion is an independent, privately owned company with headquarters in Cambridge, UK.

Founded in 1987 to develop scientific instrumentation, today the company has two groups, the Products group and the Powertrain Engineering Services group, both working with customers around the world.


Following initial success in development of fast response hydrocarbon measurement for combustion measurements, Cambustion's expertise in fast measurement was applied to NOx, CO&CO2, all with automotive applications.

In the 2000's, we developed our first particle measurement instrument, again for engine and aftertreatment development. This product had applications outside the automotive industry, and the insights and expertise gained led to a growing range of products with applications outside automotive.

Today Cambustion's products remain tools of choice for engine and combustion researchers, but the range also includes applications including medical device development, fire safety testing, drug delivery, ambient pollution monitoring, process control and more.

With a large R&D team, we both develop instruments from indigenous ideas and partner with others, often helping academic teams to develop their ideas into final instruments.
