Qpump using liquid tube technology
What is a liquid tube?
When submitted to a quadrupolar magnetic field, an “anti-tube” of water (or any other fluid, emulsion, or suspension) is surrounded by a ferrofluid. This patented technology is at the basis of the Qpump C5.
Benefits of the liquid tube technology
Tubes are self-healing
Tubes are uncloggable
Moving pinching points result in "magnetostaltic" pumping
Being able to «pinch» the tube at multiple locations and moving those pinching points along the tube results in a magnetic peristatic action except that this time the tube is liquid and offers frictionless pumping. Pumping pressures of > 1 bar and flow rates of several hundreds mL/min can be achieved with the Qpump. Higher flow rates of pressures can be provided on demand.
