Qfluidics innovates using ferrofluids

Qfluidics synthetizes novel ferrofluids opening new applications in Audio, Vacuum seals, and a Low-shear pumping. Our unique synthetic procedure allows for ultra-concentrated ferrofluids in various solvents.  Our low-viscosity perfluorinated ferrofluids are featured in the Qpump C5, a completely new way to achieve “magnetic peristaltic” pumping, resulting in low-shear liquid transport.

WHAT WE DO

FERROFLUIDS

Audio Fluids

Ferrofluids, when introduced in the gap of a speaker, have the ability to center the voice coil, provide efficient damping,  as well as a improve power handling. This leads to a low rise in impedance and it facilitates filtering.

Qfluidics provides ferrofluids leading to significantly higher power output.

Vacuum Seals

Ferrofluids can be used in vacuum seals allowing separation of gas / atmosphere / vacuum compartment having rotary parts.

Our low viscosity perfluorinated ferrofluids are highly chemically resistant and can help you work in aggressive (chemical) environments.

Pumping using Liquid Tube Technology

Quadrupolar magnetic fields are used to make a liquid tube that has no physical walls, but is confined only by a ferrofluid. Since there is no solid (physical wall) the fluid transport is nearly frictionless. In addition, the liquid tube is self-healing (due to the liquid nature), which allows for long-term operation without maintenance. In addition, it allows abrasive solutions, suspensions, and emulsions to be pumped. Pumping pressures of > 1 bar and flow rates up to 100 mL/min are possible on the Qpump C5. Larger pressures and flowrates are available upon request.
