Qpump C5 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 100 mL/min. can be achieved with the Qpump C5. Higher flow rates of pressures can be provided on demand.
